The Miss Universe Organization required a permanent solution that also featured the capability for on demand scalability requirements. Reliam was able to create a custom architecture to support their new fully dynamic web application, while at the same time scaling this model to support traffic bursts using Reliam's Event Capacity services.
Reliam had been delivering services and managing the application for The Miss Universe Organization, producers of the MISS UNIVERSE®, MISS USA® and MISS TEEN USA® for many years. The Miss Universe Organization wanted to launch a new site on a new platform that would offer a completely dynamic experience for fans that visited the site. To scale this application to support a large amount of concurrent users while serving dynamic content would require migration to a new architecture and a significant amount of user experience and load testing. Because the requirements to support large spikes of traffic was not needed throughout the year but only during specific times, The Miss Universe Organization would need a permanent solution with the ability to scale on demand.
Reliam knew the requirements of this new platform would require additional tuning and special scalability considerations. Because the dynamic nature of the application was not intended for high traffic, the solution would need to allow for large traffic spikes without having an affect on the platform. Reliam provided a new architecture solution and application tuning for The Miss Universe Organization that allowed for a smooth transition to utilizing their new web application, without incurring significant additional costs, while maintaining high availability performance utilization.
"We found that the combination of Reliam's expertise and experience in hosting large scale media events and their excellent customer service very attractive,” said Paula M. Shugart, President of the Miss Universe Organization. “We were impressed by Reliam's reliable infrastructure, and are confident that we won’t have to worry about scalability and performance during our upcoming telecasts."
