Scalability on demand
The extreme traffic variability in e-commerce with its seasonal spikes creates a unique workload for e-commerce hosting.
The required hardware capacity must conform to the traffic peaks (ex. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc.). But for most of the year the servers are not in use.
The cloud offers an elastic solution, that allows for substantial workload variations and meets the needs for seasonal or even hourly promotional spikes in traffic, including unpredictable outbreaks.
This way, your cloud e-commerce solution resources can be scaled up and down to support your actual needs.
The other side of scalability is business growth. The increase in popularity of your store, integration of new services and further store evolution force the infrastructure to grow accordingly. A flexible platform at the heart of your cloud e-commerce solution, as well as a scalable environment responds quickly to business challenges and opportunities.
The cloud allows you to avoid physical superstructure. You do not have to purchase additional equipment and hire new maintenance staff. With the cloud, your business gets all the required resources and services you need on-demand.
