Clickfrenzy – Fail

Now twelve hours into this twenty four hour event and I tried to access the site again. Still no access. Despite all their comments in advance about telling the retailers to make sure their web sites would be able to handle the load, it appears that the clickfrenzy site itself completely underestimated the capacity it would need.

Suggestion for the organisers – next time make sure you allow for several times the expected capacity and have your site hosted in several different data centres so that you are not relying on a single data centre being able to provide sufficient bandwidth for millions of people trying to access the site simultaneously.
