One Million Requests Today!

Today, April 11, SXP delivered 1,004,367 requests in a 24 hour period. Our first Million Request Day!!!

When we launched SXP just under a year ago, we had just under 25K requests per day. Less than a year later, our peak load has grown by 40X. Measured on an hourly basis, our peak load has grown 67X.

SXP broke 500K transactions in a day for the first time on March 21, so we have doubled our peak load over the last 20 days while being 100% available for 19 consecutive days.

All performance numbers look good - our processor peaked at 20%, nothing queued, nothing hung - so we still have plenty of capacity for growth.

The Windows Azure Platform continues to deliver great performance, availability, and value.
