When the traffic to your web application serves increase, you need to do a better job than just horizontal or vertical increase in servers.
You not only need to bring the mind shift on the software architecture side and make the application scale-able at various layers but also deal with the challenges with infrastructure optimization.
In the TechNext meetup Pune, the topic was discussed at length carefully observing the challenges, requirements and possible solutions at every stage of growth.
The discussion was around following topics:
- Architectural mind-shift for scale
- Infrastructure challenges with traffic growth
- Load balancing
- Content switching
- Content optimization
- Traffic insights
- Security against data theft
- Protection against BOTs and traffic surge
- DDoS attack prevention
- Continuous delivery
