BRIT Awards Amplifies Drupal Website

The BRIT Awards, the UK's biggest Music Awards ceremony, face the unique challenge of two cyclical peaks in website traffic each year coinciding with its two main events, the launch of the BRIT Awards nominations and the BRIT Awards show night. In 2011, the BRITs website crashed on the nominations launch night due to unexpected levels of user traffic on the site. With servers overwhelmed it took an entire day to fix the website and resume normal activity.

This year the BRITs team decided that it is vital to have a cost-effective, scalable cloud solution in place to handle the two peak traffic periods without disruption. Using Acquia Managed Cloud and Acquia Support, the experience for fans was seamless and allowed for an up-close and more engaging experience than ever before. Read this case study to learn more.
