Real Configurations

See how overflows perform in real life campaigns
  • Single high traffic campaign
    Overflow servers were added to support a planned high traffic flash sale, featured on national television, national newspapers and social media.

    The customer's stack of 2x 40-Core servers was increased for a single day by 12x overflow servers, to provide instant additional capacity to cope with the extremely high traffic volumes.
  • Frequent high traffic campaigns
    A special promotion, run bi-monthly with a limited number of units draws a massive number of visitors from the brand's huge Instagram following.

    Where fixed resources would have a large permanent increase in costs, overflow servers are perfect allowing huge scaling for just a couple of days per month at a low cost.
