What: "How to Handle Unlimited Load" webinar
It used to be called the "Oprah Effect," now some refer to it as the "Groupon Effect"... Whatever the name is, we know websites will crash due to a sudden response and rush of end-user traffic to a site, essentially temporarily putting you out of business.

Learn how top companies use Apica's WebOverload cloud service to transparently set up their own "check overdraft protection" policy to dynamically and effectively handle unexpected end user traffic, thus keeping the business open regardless of load conditions.
