Everyday I see at least 1 news item on VCs investing in cloud apps. If you closely watch the last 6 quarters of VC investments, all over the world, they are all on cloud based applications, such as ecom portals, taxi booking portals etc. Will every cloud app succeed? What makes it make or break?
A big company spent millions of dollars in marketing and promoting its online discount deals, to get ready for black Friday. Everything was fine till 6am on black Friday. By 6.15am on Friday, the site started displaying a blank screen, leaving the visitors clueless; all visitors left that site angrily and went to the competitor’s site and bought items happily! Millions of dollars wasted in marketing and the ecom portal did not work when it was supposed to work; that company needs to wait for one more year to get the next black Friday. This is just one story; like this there are 100s of unpublished stories for many ecom and cloud based applications.
What went wrong? The company estimated that 20 million users will visit the site in a span of 10 hours; that means, 2 million users every hour. With that in mind they had provisioned cloud servers and made everything ready. But the site received more than 2 million mobile users in the first 10 minutes itself! Servers did not get breathing time and crashed.
Why should we need thousands of cloud servers? No consumer is ready to wait beyond 4-5 seconds when they browse sites or product catalogs. If million users do visit, if you do not have more servers, you app will be slow. In order to provide a faster response, you need more servers. Fine, then why did the site crash in this specific case? They clearly underestimated the crowd that came to the site. You need more crowd to make more money, and crowd makes your site slow or crash. So what is the solution?
Every app must be performance tested for its capacity. We need to know when it is going to break. So we need to throttle the app with more and more virtual users and see its breaking in test environment – else it will break in production. When we bombard apps with more and more user, we must monitor its usage of cpu, memory, disk and network consumptions in parallel. This is the treadmill test that you do to your app. It is not enough if you test in a lab or local environment; the traffic must be real from cloud itself.
So, next time, before you go live or spend millions in marketing, ensure you have an application performance management (APM) tool and test your app with that for 1000s or millions of users.
