Yesterday at 3:20PM PDT we flipped the switch to enable our new configuration for the distribution service. This effort involved several months of scoping, testing and rehearsing to ensure a smooth transition and the establishment of an environment that we believe will provide a significant performance boost for publishing and fulfilling content to consumers.
A grand total of 18 packets were lost in the transition and we have already heard of significantly faster publishing efforts. Folios that used to take over an hour to publish are now finishing in under 10 minutes. We are now feeding data to Akamai at 10x the speed we could in the past. This means that fewer users should be seeing timeout issues in their libarary and increased reliability of background downloads via iOS Newsstand, when publishers push new content live.
Adobe is firmly committed to the business of digital publishing and our primary goal is increasing customer satisfaction with DPS. Yesterday's rollout was the first of several high priority efforts under way to increase the horsepower that drives the internal machinery of DPS.
Please let me know if you encounter any stability issues and expect more great improvements in the upcoming months.
real great stuff and well done.
we are publishing daily issues, in the wortst case it took more than 30 minutes to put a publication with 40 articles online (portrait & landscape). the average duration was around 18 minutes 30 seconds and today we
completed the publication process in incredible 4 minutes and 27 seconds.
kudos to everyone envolved in upgrading the infrastructure.
kind regards & fingers crossed to keep the excelent performance
I had the pleasure of being an observer to the switchover yesterday, and want to say that it was one of the most amazing things I've seen in my software development career. The months of work that went into this translated into *immediate* impact. After the cutover I watched a line chart showing throughput to Akamai shoot straight up.
Amazing. Absolutely amazing.
we pushed now 3 dailys - 2 evening and one morning issues trough the new system.
