From traditional message board systems to full featured social networks, aiScaler is there for community web sites, enabling them to scale to any volume of traffic. Regardless of technology or content from php to .NET, home improvement internet dating, aiScaler delivers a complete set of benefits.
From the home page to dynamic message boards discussion threads or social network user profiles, aiScaler has the flexibility to cache the right content for the right amount of time. Even when caching for just a few seconds, you can realize very significant offloading factor, reducing the traffic that normally flows directly to your web, application and database servers, to just a minute trickle and dramatically reducing the requirements on the infrastructure.
Most community web sites deliver user submitted content (the very heart of the Web 2.0 revolution, making the users the content publishers). While user content varies widely, from message board posts to pictures or profile information. All user submitted information has to be stored in some kind of persistent store engine – file systems to relational databases.
It get more complicated as more sites now let their users comment on other peoples content and become friends of each other to follow each other’s activities on the site. These great new features translate to an ever increasing demand on the back-end infrastructure: the web, application and database servers, must be able to retrieve and deliver remarkable amounts of information just to render a page.
Often a page requires dozens of database calls to obtain and render assorted page elements, placing a very significant load across most components of the site’s infrastructure. As the number of site users grows, so does the expense aimed at keeping the site functioning. More and more hardware is purchased causing expenses to skyrocket affecting the bottom line. Worse resources are diverted from adding features that users desire to adding more and more hardware.
The solution to these problems is available: the affordable, easy to deploy and configure aiScaler accelerator. Upon deploying our products, the site visitors will instantly notice that your pages load much faster as the responses are coming directly from aiScaler’s RAM-based response cache. The load on your infrastructure will be reduced to a minute fraction of what it normal, as aiScaler serves responses before they ever reach your servers. Now you don’t have to resort to spending more and more just to keep up with growth of user traffic.
The benefits do not stop at improving the page load times and dramatic savings. You can now be in control of your site, monitor and alert on traffic in real time. In your arsenal you will now have one of the industries’ most advanced Denial of Service Attack (DOS) countermeasures, so should your site ever come under such an attack, you can enable a multi-level, comprehensive protection.
To see for yourself how aiScaler can benefit your site, please call us to discuss your site’s needs. You can also download an obligation-free, fully functional version of aiScaler for a quick, easy-to-use and non-disruptive trial.
aiScaler saves a lot of money We use aiScaler at Giant Digital in front of our load balanced AWS hosted servers on Scalr. Although occasionally we do experience high loads that spawn multiple DBs or web servers for the most part aiScaler deals with 99% of the traffic that's thrown at it and this is for 20 million+ pages a month servers. -www.gigwise.com
aiScaler saves the day We run 30 or so quad extra large boxes in EC2. When our dedicated load balancer gave way to inbound traffic, we approached aiScaler to assist us. They deployed aiScaler literally within minutes. We have discovered that it does wonders with caching and has allowed us to remove half the nodes from our app server setup already. Thanks aiScaler. -Echo Media
