INDUSTRY Data Management PRODUCT Cloud Sites PAIN POINTS Infoplum-AFP had the monumental task of providing the world with real-time coverage of the World Cup. It was imperative that their proprietary application handle billions of global requests over the month- long event. HOW LIQUID WEB HELPED The Most Helpful Humans in Hosting TM configured Infoplum's cloud sites to have a higher number of nodes than usual, along with custom-configured load balancers and additional IP addresses in order to handle the 153 million hits per day without a miss. "Fundamental to the success of this event" Liquid Web Powers Real-Time Coverage of the World Cup Soccer: The world's most popular, most talked about, and most watched sporting event by far. And the World Cup is its jeweled crown. With this in mind, infoplum-AFP had the monumental task of providing the world with real- time coverage (including score updates, profiles, and predictive data) of this premier event. With all eyes on AFP, it was imperative that their proprietary application handle billions of global requests during the month-long tournament—because failure would not only result in the total outrage of millions of passionate fans, it would also be a major hit to the credibility and reputation of the infoplum-AFP brand. How Liquid Web Helped Because infoplum had been working with Cloud Sites since October 2008, they knew Cloud Sites would skillfully deliver the statistics and highlights that engaged soccer fans were demanding, without unexpected crashes or lost data.
