[1]Can your website handle a sudden spike in activity? When LoveBook Online[2], an online retailer of custom books, made their first national television appearance, their site wasn’t ready to handle the ensuing traffic and crashed. When their second national television appearance rolled around, they had Managed Cloud[3] and Cloud Files[4] on their side and traffic flowed smoothly. (Click here[5] to read the LoveBook Online case study.) Today, the Cloud Avengers help a marketing team discover the cloud [6]to handle activity spikes and enable the team to launch campaigns faster without worrying about potential traffic jams.
