Galvanized reports record performance of its websites

Galvanized

Our client Galvanized announced last week that their two flagship websites EatThis.com and BestLifeOnline.com reached another high in performance over the New Year.

Galvanized Media had already reported a 20% increase in traffic in May 2019. And just last week they announced that their sites hit yet another record audience number, attracting more than 10 million readers in January 2020 alone. Best Life celebrated its highest traffic month ever – with 6.2 million users!

Both websites had moved to our AWS-powered hosting service HeartyHosting in July 2018, which provides custom hosting-solutions tailored to a website’s particular needs. The core AWS services include Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) instances for optimal resizable compute capacity as well as Amazon Relational Database Services (RDS). On top of that we built a caching layer which allows for frequent and instant content updates while site visitors still enjoy the performance benefits of pre-cached content. Finally, we made sure that sudden surges in traffic, no matter how big, will be handled without bringing the server to its knees.

We are thrilled about Galvanized’s success and continue to be committed to make Eat This and Best Life as secure, robust and performant as possible!
