Peak Traffic Spikes

Peak Traffic Spikes

Large spikes of website traffic can cause site outages, unhappy customers, reduced profits and damaged brand reputation. Spikes often occur during key trading events such as Black Friday and Easter Monday, limited edition product ranges or when offers are picked up and promoted on consumer websites.

Investing in infrastructure to support seasonal spikes is uneconomic and still prone to failure during sudden spikes.


It has never been more important to ensure 100% website availability. In a digital world of streaming, consumers are accustomed to gaining access to information, entertainment and items of desire in near real time. Failure to provide immediate access to website shops, limited edition product ranges and discounted sales events can be detrimental to the brand reputation and repeat custom.

Even a one-second delay in load time can result in a 7% loss in conversions and a two-second delay during a transaction results in shopping card abandonment rates of up to 87% as customers fear something has gone wrong with the transaction and abandon their purchase
