DancePlaza.com breaks ALL records!!
We are flattered by your response and appreciation resulting in an ALL record breaking number of visitors on DancPlaz.com during this years 2006 Blackpool Dance Festival.
Our policy, to provide more than results only during the Blackpool Dance Festival starts to pay off. Also I would like to mention that this year major DanceSport websites in Germany, Italy, Russia and the USA have published direct links to our websites www.Blackpooldancefestival.net and www.DancePlaza.com which confirms the reliability and quality of our work in Blackpool!
In relation to the technical infrastructure we were planning a major server upgrade after the 2006 Blackpool Dance Festival but as a result of your enthusiastic response we had to reschedule the server upgrade immediately.
Load during Blackpool:
On Monday 29th of may 2006 we were forced to do the server upgrade at the most hottest time of the year. At our network operation centre in Rotterdam the Netherlands two new servers where screwed into the 19 rack. 1 dual cpu (3GHz) webserver and 1 (3Ghz) database server.
- Avg. 630 database queries per second
- Avg. 90 unique people online within 2 second time interval
- Avg. 1.4 million hits every day and serving 300.000 pages every day.
With this new hardware setup we are moving closer towards our new plans for 2006.
We from DancePlaza.com would like to thank:
Rob & Cor Ronda: for all the photos they made and will publish after the festival
Sophie Ronda: for writing down the numbers during the early daytime rounds
Maikel van Hees: for staying at home to work during the night on the results database.
Piet Rullens Jr: for installing the new servers during the festival
The New Dene Hotel, Blackpool: for their High Speed wireless Internet connection.
Next year we have our 10th year anniversary in providing you the results on Internet directly from the Blackpool Dance Festival
