The mega sale season has started. And no matter how hard and weird this year has been, you must prepare your online store for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Last year, according to Adobe Analytics, US consumers paid online $7.4 billion on Black Friday and a total of $9.4 billion by the end of Cyber Monday. It was a record number and it’s going to be much higher this year
Preparations and testing are crucial
Problems we faced supporting e-commerce businesses and how we solved them
During the past few years, we have migrated most of the e-commerce systems we support to the AWS cloud. Сloud architecture with Auto Scaling makes it possible to scale the infrastructure up and down automatically depending on the load. The Auto Scaling group can use, for example, 5 servers at the times when the traffic is low, but grow up to 30 servers in the times of high customer activity, and up to 100 or more servers during the load spikes on a mega sale. These numbers are different for every system. Correctly configured Auto Scaling provides the system with precisely the number of servers it needs at every moment to handle the load, and for the website to operate without slowing down.
Migration to AWS gave our clients the following benefits:
This year we have migrated 3 high-load systems to AWS, each migration took more than a month, because we needed to create the complicated cloud infrastructure for each of the resources and then move the system to the cloud without the downtime of the services. The website users didn’t even notice the switch, they only noticed that the websites started to work smoother.
