Aucor, based in Finland, designs WordPress and Drupal websites for clients. When their growing customer base needed more capacity than their private servers could manage, the company knew they needed to lighten the weight by moving to the cloud.
Aucor turned to Google Cloud Platform so they could keep their focus on what they do best – designing fantastic websites – not managing servers.
The team took Google App Engine out for a test drive. Janne Jääskeläinen, CEO at Aucor, noted, “Our test site could handle over 70,000 requests per second without the users noticing a thing. Let’s put that into perspective: it’s as if every single Finn (about 5.4 million people) would have spent a good hour clicking around the site, without it crashing or even slowing down.”
With these speeds, the team was able to easily transition over 70 of its sites to Google App Engine in little time. Learn more about Aucor’s story here.
