1,000 Registrations in 10 Minutes without sweating

We were recently asked if we could handle 1,000 registration in 10 minutes. Of course we can! That is why we spent so much time proving 50,000 registrations in 7 minutes. If you are a geek, read the technical white paper on scaling.

We also had a real life race a few weeks back that actually registered 1,020 people in the first 10 minutes of registration. We had scaled up a bit to handle the load with 10 web servers – but we didn’t need to since the load maxed out around 15% and server response time was 158 milliseconds (0.158 seconds). Users with fast Internet connections saw sub-second performance between pages.

Here is the number of registrations per minute:

9:01 – 6 registrations
Response Time9:02 – 97 registrations
9:03 – 138 registrations
9:04 – 167 registrations
9:05 – 152 registrations
9:06 – 118 registrations
9:07 – 123 registrations
9:08 – 77 registrations
9:09 – 66 registrations
9:10 – 74 registrations

Here is an in depth video on our scalability and how it came to be:
