How many cloudlets do I need to support my application?

A very common question we receive is “How many cloudlets do I need to provision to handle X concurrent users?” Unfortunately, this question is nearly impossible to answer without formal load testing.

The number of visitors supported by a particular set of provisioned resources is highly variable and is determined by your application’s unique theme, plugin stack, custom code, caching, etc. What works for one site may not be appropriate for another, even if they appear to be running the same set of cornerstone plugins.

Custom consulting services are available to develop and execute load tests that will tell us more about your application’s performance and assist you in properly sizing it. Contact support for more details.
