Case Study - Comic Relief
Every two years, one of the biggest events in the UK fundraising calendar is Comic Relief's Red Nose Day. With the lead up to the event in 2009, the charity implemented the Riverbed® Stingray™ Traffic Manager to make sure its web and donation platforms could scale up to handle vast peaks of website traffic. This innovative solution allowed Comic Relief's 2009 fundraising event to handle more than 540,000 online transactions in a seven-hour window, with peaks of 116 transactions per second. As a result, the organization raised a phenomenal £54.7m in one night.
