As many of you may have seen, Pikalytics recieved a big shoutout from Twitch/YouTube personality aDrive
during his stream today! This directly brought in a large amount of new users and followers, which was awesome to see!
Of course, with this major influx of users, came a slew of performance issues resulting from an all-time high concurrent connections for the site (which really is a tough thing to complain about, regardless of the instability it may have caused).
So how can Pikalytics push forward through this traffic you might be asking?
Let me tell you! Since the influx of traffic today, we've been hard at work to build an all new cache layer into the site, as well as moving our hosting to a more stable option on Amazon Web Services' EC2. This should provide major performance benefits for the website, as well as allowing us to do a better job scaling sideways when any future user surges may occur. Thank you for all of the support that the site has recieved, and we'll do our best to keep things running nice and smoothly as we push on!
