Looking for predictable performance for extreme traffic spikes? Nexcess Advanced Auto Scaling lets you manage huge spikes in traffic without crashes or a reduction in speed. No long term contract or commitment - just effective management for significant traffic that’s ready when you are.
Advanced Auto Scaling allows you to plan (and budget) for more concurrent users during periods of significant traffic spikes - holidays, flash sales and promotions that are likely to go viral. If you’re expecting 5-10X your standard traffic, you can easily add additional PHP workers (in groups of 10) for days, weeks, or months.
Advanced Auto Scale Pricing
Enabling Advanced Auto Scaling costs $99 / month. This will shift the PHP workers from their infrastructure to a container
As you need more resources (to be able to handle more concurrent users), you can add additional containers with 10 PHP workers a piece for $50/day.
