Wanelo came to us for help getting ready to handle a huge increase in traffic. They had already seen traffic increase by a factor of about 5x over the previous year, and they knew that their existing systems wouldn’t be able to handle another increase of even 2x, let alone 5x.
Together we scaled their infrastructure to successfully handle a 7x increase in traffic from their previous peak capacity and architecting and implementing a database system with plenty of additional room to grow if needed. To do this we designed, built, and deployed a massively parallel system to process more data every day than they had previously processed in the course of weeks. We also trained junior and mid-level developers to make them more effective and productive team members.
Over the course of almost two years, we saw Wanelo grow their engineering team from about 10 to about 20 and increase the traffic they could handle from about 600 requests/second up to about 4200 requests/sec.
