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.
 
  • STEP 1
  • 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.
  • STEP 2
  • 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.
  • STEP 3
  • 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely. WordPress is one of the best ways to host a live event, as there are a variety of tools and plugins available that you can use.

Squarespace is a powerful website builder, but it lacks the customization and features available in WordPress. Squarespace also does not have popular plugins that help you display content to viewers.

The main problems facing membership sites are the need to handle bursts of traffic during live events and sales promotions. Without a powerful host, your site will likely crash under this increased load.

Here at Convesio, we have built the best platform for handling the technical challenges of hosting live events. Our platform ensures that the customer experience remains consistently excellent for all of your viewers, even during high-traffic events.
