At Gap, retailers' peak season starts in October and goes until December 25th.
Black Friday and CyberMonday are the highest traffic days.
”Peak Preparation” is a multi-month process that culminates with holiday shopping.
This is a multi-step, multi-focused team effort that includes:
- Peak readiness
- Capacity engineering
- High-availability requirements and failover testing
- Coordinate integrated load testing
- Vendor dependencies management
- Observability and readiness scoring
We’ll talk about the tight process that is executed at Gap, along with our partnership with VMware Tanzu, to achieve a constantly growing e-commerce business.
You’ll walk away with a strong understanding on what it takes to accomplish the processing of millions of transactions in the most seamless way possible.
