As the Christmas season comes into its peak period, the consumerism frenzy has begun to take off. Kick-started by Black Friday and carried on through with Cyber Monday, shopping season shows no signs of slowing down until the new year, and your customers are going to be buying a lot, often. Even though high streets and shopping centres are still as busy as ever, e-commerce websites have started to take a huge amount of traffic as more and more of us turn to cyber space for our retail therapy.
It’s a testament to the digital age that we have the systems, technology and processes in place to let this happen, as an unfathomable amount of transactions take place across the web simultaneously. What we shouldn’t forget however, is the enormous strain and pressure excessive traffic can put on websites, servers and infrastructure. What goes up must come down, and the laws of technology say that the more people that visit your site, the more room you’ll need for them to browse if you want to avoid site crashes and speed issues.
