iFixit Uses RightScale's Dynamic Autoscaling to Handle Web Traffic Spikes Driven by Marketing Events
As iFixit grew in popularity, it experienced web traffic spikes that nearly crippled the site. Recognizing the importance of maintaining the site's uptime and upholding iFixit's expanding reputation, while also staying within budget, the company needed a way to handle these events without being forced to make massive capital expenditures on new hardware. So they naturally looked to cloud computing. The RightScale Cloud Management Platform was a fundamental part of iFixit's strategy to move to the cloud. RightScale makes it easy for any organization to tap the enormous power of cloud computing for scalable, cost-effective IT infrastructure on demand, with complete control and portability. Through the fully-automated RightScale platform, iFixit can easily deploy, manage and dynamically scale even complex, multi-cloud applications.
