Convesio Makes Auto-scaling Easy for Companies of All Sizes 

Auto-scaling is a cloud computing tool that allows customers to scale cloud services, such as virtual machines (VMs) and server capabilities, up or down automatically based on predetermined scenarios. On a website, the speed with which page loads can determine whether or not the user stays to learn more about your company. If a website takes too long to load, the user may abandon it, which means the company has lost a possible customer. This can happen without you even being aware of the problem. At this point, you’ve most likely spent your money on digital posters, social media campaigns, and other forms of online paid advertising to acquire clicks and convert visitors into paying customers. However, you need to keep in mind that the average user’s attention span is now limited. They will click on the link if they are captivated by your company. Even so, when your website reaches its maximum capacity and starts loading slowly, that can result in massive losses for your company.

Through an auto-scaling feature, you can solve any problems during peak traffic on your company website. As traffic piles up, auto-scaling can detect the load and commission a new server through the cloud to spread the load, ultimately improving your website’s reliability. The core components of auto-scaling include groups, scaling plans, and launch configuration. With auto-scaling, you can choose from various instance kinds, allowing you to synchronize your resources to match the app’s requirements. These instances can be combined into groups, allowing them to be scaled and managed as a logical entity. Additionally, scaling plans provide insight on how and when a company should auto-scale. Lastly, the instance type, AMI ID, security groups, key pair, and block device mapping are included in the launch configuration.

Along with the core components, auto-scaling has several advantages, including cost, security, and availability. When you choose to use auto-scaling, the host continuously monitors the website to ensure that it is working at the level that you have specified. In other words, the scaling can change automatically as demand rises. Auto-scaling changes the capacity of resources automatically to maintain a high level of service. This comes in handy when the workload is erratic, unpredictable, and constantly changing.

Thanks to auto-scaling, when an instance becomes unhealthy, it is terminated, and a new model is launched to replace it. Companies can also employ numerous availability zones through auto-scaling options. As a result, if one zone becomes unavailable, a company’s auto-scaling can compensate by launching instances in another zone. Cost management is another advantage of auto-scaling; users only pay for the instances that they are using. This means they cut down costs since they don’t have to launch instances that they are not using. Auto-scaling keeps track of all the demands of your website demands and ensures that it has enough capacity to respond to high traffic needs as and when they arise. Moreover, it allows companies to store, process, and transmit credit/debit card data to the merchant or the service provider. 

In the hopes of making enterprise-level website hosting through WordPress available for everyone, Convesio has created a platform that represents a significant milestone from a functionality point of view. This is a first in the web hosting industry, as no other providers offer “Managed WordPress Scaling.” With Convesio’s Docker-based architecture and easy-to-use dashboard, customers can quickly set up a highly scalable WordPress website in minutes, unlike the typical timeframe of a complex VPS setup. Getting started is quite simple: customers can configure Auto Scaling by setting the minimum and the maximum number of Docker containers for their website to run on. Convesio will automatically deploy and remove additional containers depending on the required resources, with a load balancer sharing traffic evenly across each.Furthermore, more advanced users can set custom threshold values that trigger scaling events based on different combinations of CPU, Memory, and PHP Worker usage. 

Originally launched in 2019, the third iteration of this platform introduces several other essential updates, including environment selection, database options, more granular performance metrics and logs via the dashboard, and performance improvements. Convesio uses Docker technology to package a highly performant WordPress stack that can be deployed in a matter of seconds, the moment a customer clicks to create a new site. The auto-scaling functionality clones containers to match the number of instances required to handle the increase in load.

The platform was built to deliver a consistently fast experience whatever the load on the server. Convesio works particularly well for the following use cases: eCommerce, eLearning, and online events, online publications, and agencies. Convesio has eliminated the need for complex and costly solutions by offering Enterprise-grade availability and scalability at the click of a button. Customers only pay for extra resources when they are needed resulting in a significant cost saving.
