BRIT Awards amplifies their Drupal website with Acquia Cloud
The BRIT Awards face two cyclical peaks in website traffic each year that coincide with the launch of their two main events, the BRIT Awards nominations and BRIT Awards show night. In 2011, the site crashed on the nominations launch due to unexpected user traffic, and it took over 24 hours to fix the problem and resume normal activity.
As such, the organization realized the need for a cost-effective, scalable solution that could handle and support high traffic without disruption or downtime.
After selecting and deploying a flexible, functional managed cloud environment; the BRIT Awards was able to stably provide the engaging content their users demanded with high availability and performance despite facing traffic that was even higher than projected. Check out this brief resource to learn more about this case study and how you too can achieve improved site functionality.
