ESCTODAY: Can succes be a problem ?

by Sietse Bakker 53 views

You might have noticed the past two days. sometimes it's simply impossible to reach our website or it's very slow. And that's how success became our biggest problem.

Well well…two webservers are running for ESCTODAY, and even more people are running for you ! Danny and the people from the webhosting compnay are working almost full time to make sure nothing goes wrong. Here are some statistics: ESCTODAY had 80.000 pageviews yesterday. Sometimes more than 60 people tried to visit the site at the same time. Each file loading from the server to your computer is called a 'hit'. We have 57.000 of them per hour.

To provide our users a stable connection to our servers located in The Netherlands, we decided to migrate ESCTODAY to one of our newest servers at our hosting location. The server, a 866 mhz Pentium III Coppermine, is optimized to handle large visitoramounts. Thanks to our Technical Chief Danny Mekic' and his team, we can now handle large amounts of visitors.

Down here you see some pictures from the hard working ESCTODAY team in Tallinn.
