"These are insane numbers, just to really understand what we're dealing with. And to get to a place where everything is nice and smooth as it is inside the venue when people are jumping between the lounge and the live sessions, or between the different booths, is a huge undertaking."

-- Vito Pelleg, CEO - Atarim

HOW IT WORKS

How Convesio Scales During Virtual Events

When an event kicks off you get hundreds if not thousands of users trying to register, log in or run functionality all at the same time. WordPress will fall over unless your hosting can scale.

1. Pre and post event: WordPress runs on the minimum number of containers

Think of a container as a mini VPS with its own dedicated resources. With Convesio, you can set the minimum and maximum numbers of containers to run on in the Dashboard.

When traffic is low before and after an event, Convesio will run on the minimum number of containers. This means you are not using and paying for capacity you don't need.

2. A surge in traffic triggers scaling. More containers deploy to share the load

With each additional container you 2x, 3X, 4X, etc... your resources, so WordPress keeps running fast.

Convesio scales up automatically to handle handful to thousands of concurrent users, and back down when the event has concluded.  The additional capacity if charged by the hour and is capped too.

3. WordPress scales across clusters of servers

This is called horizontal scaling and difficult to achieve with a traditional VPS set up (and very expensive too).

If an event attracts a particularly high level of attendees and extra containers fill capacity of a physical server, additional ones deploy to other ones.
