Welcome to the month of December! It’s that time of the year that keeps so many people in DevOps on their toes with managing websites and apps dedicated to the major retail days. Black Friday and Cyber Monday require teams to plan on how traffic will impact performance for our customers. There’s a lot of planning teams can do beforehand around understanding the resources allocated to your apps and evaluating how those may need to be scaled. I hope you faired well this shopping season during these high traffic days!
