For every action you might take in a web application, such as creating an appointment, answering an email or just clicking a button marked “next,” a request is built and sent to a server that generates a response. The server response, which may include interacting with databases, file systems and other resources, goes back to the application to have the result rendered to you.
Multiply your action by a thousand user actions—or millions—and it becomes obvious why enterprises like Google, Amazon and Facebook all have farms of servers to handle all their traffic.
If you’re like me, when an application is slow in responding—and slow might just be one or two seemingly interminable minutes—your user satisfaction drops to zero fast. We all expect highly interactive performance from the applications we use and won’t tolerate anything less. It only takes a few times watching those spinning clocks for a user to give up on using an application.
If your application isn’t running enough instances on enough web servers, your customers are not going to be pleased. The industrial-strength server-farmers have set the bar high, possibly costing your business as much as $2.5 million per year.
