After a very successful private beta, we launched the Spock public beta today with great fanfare. During the private beta period we created a strong community of users, bloggers, and reviewers. For this we are very grateful.
In anticipation of our public beta launch, we had catered for peak capacity of 100 page views a second, which translates to 300 million page views a month. However, since this morning we have been getting a consistent request rate of 300 to 400 page views a second, which translates to nearly 1 billion page views a month.
Although this level of demand is gratifying, we sincerely apologize for not being able to serve it all. The entire Spock team is working hard to add more capacity today and tomorrow. Please bear with us while we add more bandwidth to meet the needs of our global user base.
