Question

Handling large traffic spikes

  • Posted March 4, 2014

Hi,

If I host my website on Digital Ocean, what happens if I expect a large traffic spike, > 10.000 simultaneous connections? Do you have load balancers available?

Thanks.

Increase your worker connections in your nginx configurations.

We do not offer load balancers. You can however set up your own load balancer cluster – we have plenty of articles on how to do that: <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/community_tags/scaling”>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/community_tags/scaling</a>.
