According to a survey, 52% of shoppers expect to experience an outage on days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. When web and mobile sites buckle under huge volumes of traffic and experience outages, retailers lose revenue, and their brands suffer significantly. To prepare for the busiest online shopping season, companies need to ensure their systems are ready for extreme scalability and continuous IT operations, year-round.
