Scaling Ecommerce For Season Finale Success

When Sydney-based start-up Vegepod learned they’d be on the season finale of Australia’s Shark Tank, they suspected their new brought fame might bring a bigger audience to their site. Originally their infrastructure was placed on a data center across oceans in Singapore, which meant there site could potentially lag in content delivery.

Anticipating their ecommerce site might endure site downtime during the live airing of Shark Tank, Vegepod reached out to digital agency Elephant Room, who recommended they switch their website over to WP Engine’s WordPress platform. WP Engine, who has data centers and an integrated CDN option in Australia worked with Elephant Room and Vegepod to ensure their site would remain online during the finale.
