Sitecore - Scaling for the Superbowl
With Sitcore 9 comes a whole new world in topology. Sitecore 9 marks a shift toward a microservice architecture, which affords new challenges and considerations in designing a Highly Available solution that can support Hyper-scale and load.
Recently we had the opportunity to design and implement a Sitecore 9.0 solution in Azure on App Services that would scale for the Superbowl. The design considerations included:
- Serve traffic to 60k concurrent users
- Withstand an entire regional failure (N+1 regions)
- Disaster recovery
- 99.999% uptime
Additional considerations for this architecture included:
- Live automated deployments with zero downtime and the ability to pre-warm the site
- Auto scaling
- The ability to minimize and control costs
- The ability to add regions as required
