New name – name infrastructure
When we changed the name of our service to LightWidget, we also changed our server infrastructure. Unfortunately we reached the limits of our previous setup. Even after optimization of everything that we could think of, during the most busy periods, our servers simply couldn’t handle the traffic.
Yes, right now we are having way more than 200,000,000 every month, handling more than 24,000 website every month. Everyday there are hundreds of new widgets generated. It’s great for us, because within just 7 months we doubled the number of views from 100,000,000 to 200,000,000 😀
But this is serious drawback when it comes to our infrastructure. Recently we had some stability issues, delays in refreshes and lack of access to some servers for few minutes everyday.
LightWidget is currently working on new infrastructure. We have more powerful servers with latest possible software installed. We hope that it will have positive impact on general performance.
