New Atlanta has just announced that MySpace.com, the world's busiest ColdFusion-based web site, is switching to BlueDragon.NET. MySpace has experienced tremendous growth over the past year, and is now the fifth busiest site on the Internet--it receives more traffic than Hotmail or Google! As you can imagine, this growth has put a tremendous strain on their ColdFusion servers, exposing problems with performance, reliability, and scalability. The solution to these problems: BlueDragon.NET.
Here are some additional details not found in the press release:
- During testing on their production servers, MySpace measured a 50% reduction in CPU usage on servers running BlueDragon.NET versus their existing ColdFusion servers, with a constant traffic load.
- During production testing, the BlueDragon.NET servers were "rock solid" without a single failure attributable to BlueDragon.
- CFMX was evaluated, and though I wasn't involved in that evaluation, I've been told that CFMX did not match BlueDragon.NET for performance, reliability, and scalability.
Here's how you can find out more:
- Come to the New Atlanta-MySpace keynote address at CFUNITED this Friday afternoon and hear from Peter Amiri, Director of Technical Operations for MySpace.com, how they built the world's largest CFML-based web site, the issues they had, and why they're moving to BlueDragon.NET.
- Come to my presentation at CFUNITED on Wednesday at 2:50 pm, where I'll describe the inherent advantages of BlueDragon.NET versus Java/J2EE-based CFML servers in the areas of performance, reliability, and scalability--the direct issues that caused MySpace to choose BlueDragon.NET.
- Come visit us at our booth at CFUNITED. I'll be there most of the time when I'm not presenting or attending the keynote sessions, as will other members of New Atlanta's technical and sales staff.
- Download BlueDragon.NET and try it yourself.
If you want maximum performance, reliability, and scalability for your CFML applications, you owe it to yourself to try BlueDragon.NET.
