WhenU.com Case Study

Evolution provided the application server and network infrastructure expertise WhenU.com required to scale up their recently-launched web service to meet an ever-growing demand. The WhenUShop service uses a browser extension to provide users with information on e-commerce sites, mandating fast response times and high reliability for the web application servers that supply this information. Under Evolution's direction, a series of revisions were made to Apache configurations and Perl module usage that increased speed and overall capacity of the application server by a factor of twenty. Evolution also selected, configured, and deployed additional servers and a load balancing solution for extended capacity and improved failure tolerance.
