aiScaler is there for News providers enabling sites to scale up to any volume of traffic. From sports coverage to financial news or current events, aiScaler delivers a complete set of benefits for your business.
From your home page to breaking news, 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 News sites deploy sophisticated Content Management Systems (CMS), aimed at easing the task of content management. While rich in features and offering support for elaborate publishing workflow and content control, these CMS are limited in their ability to generate large number of user requests for pages to the viewers. Each page render required execution of complex code, complete with a number of trips to the database to retrieve and render various components of the page. Not only the page generation time suffers, but due to the high demand such rendering places across the infrastructure, the situation only becomes worse during breaking news coverage. When large traffic swings are generated by a breaking story most news sites suffer their ability to deliver quick responses.
The normal process is to buy enough servers to handle the maximum possible load only to see expensive servers, space, power and cooling site idle most of the time. These servers of course require expensive upgrades of CMS licenses to accommodate the additional capacity. Even with such massive spending, these sites can still fail to deliver when it matters the most.
As numerous studies show, Internet users do not show much of affinity to news sites. Fail to provide the information they want quickly one time too many and they will go elsewhere, to a different site unlikely to return.
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.

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
Easiest caching server we've found We were looking for something to help keep as much load as possible off our Windows origin servers. Our website is subject to extreme spikes in traffic, and there are make requests that can be cached. We've now used aiScaler during several large events, and the CPU is hardly pressed at all. The support from aiScaler had been excellent. They were able to create a new feature for us in under 24 hours. -ScribbleLive.com
