High Availability & Scaling
Scaling Sitefinity for the Enterprise
There are many scalability options available today for web systems.
When designing Sitefinity for the Enterprise, there are multiple factors that need to be considered. Product limitations, specifics, requirements for availability and data security. There are often additional factors that need to be accounted for, so that the solution is created as a whole. Such requirements might include – delivery for both code and data as well as fail-over scenarios and disaster recovery options.
Athracian helps enterprise organizations with different solutions using scaling of standalone instances, rule-based vertical and horizontal scaling in different deployments – cloud and on-premises. We can help you pick up the right approach with optimal cost saving scaling. We often find that customers are confused which scaling option is the right for them, as well as how the scaling rules must be set up. Athracian will help you with that task.
To scale vertically (also known as scale up) is to add computational power or memory to already existing server(s) in the deployment.
For Sitefinity, that might mean scaling up of the web and database server. Furthermore, the resources dedicated for supporting an existing Content Delivery Network or Caching servers’ instances might also be increased.
Horizontal scale, or scale-out is when you add more servers/services instances in order to cope with the increasing load demands.
We could apply non trivial technics such as polyglot persistence, SSL Offloading, as well as design and implementation of standalone cloud APIs.
