Coronavirus tests agility and scalability of your web applications: accelerate with kit-proxy

Spike in remote work due to the new coronavirus is testing agility and scalability of your applications. Even small service disruptions could significantly impede business productivity

A sudden surge in remote work due to the rapidly spreading new coronavirus is providing a real-world stress test of cloud services.

Leading cloud providers are unlikely to experience service disruptions that last beyond a single day. But now that millions of additional people are working from home, even shorter outages could hamper productivity more than usual.

"There are too many variables to say with certainty there will be no issues, cloud vendors have the capability to build things that are very resilient and very scalable, but everything has a breaking point."

Problems are already cropping up. On Wednesday, several Cisco collaboration services were unavailable or slow to load for hours in the middle of the workday, including Webex Teams and Cisco's control hub for IT admins.

Regardless of the cause, the incident was likely a bigger headache than usual for customers. Webex Teams messaging traffic is up 35% since last month and workers in the European and Asian countries most impacted by the new coronavirus (COVID-19) are registering for free Webex accounts at seven times the typical rate.
