task MySQL Server and App Load Optimization
One of our latest websites/apps is getting some good traction. The client had us build what is essentially a white-label product: the C2ES Carbon Calculator. The client can launch an unlimited number of versions of this tool, each one customized for one its corporate partners. Last week a new partner invited its entire workforce of 50,000 to use the tool. The demand was tremendous and greater than expected, which led to a short server outage (<10mins).
