Since the launch of Mighty Ape our web servers have been running hot and we’ve been forced to sit on our hands while we quickly arrange more capacity.
Our current servers have been coping mostly fine, but a traffic spike from a newletter would have resulted in bad performance issues (or worse).
Today we’ve added a nice new web server to our server pool. This means in theory(!) the web servers should now have no problems with any traffic spikes we can throw at them.
What did we call our new server? Bubbles!
