Now serving over 100 million WebEngage widget requests per month!

Now serving over 100 million WebEngage widget requests per month!

Yes, you read that right!

As you’d know, WebEngage integrates very simply on your website via our one time integration code. This is, what we call, our Javascript widget code. As of this morning, we have over 3200 customers worldwide – including high traffic enterprise customers like Makemytrip, Yatra, Future Bazaar, Ticket.com, Getit, Art.com, Indiatimes, Rea Group, Cleartrip etc. We end up making a request for the widget code on all pages on these customer websites wherever our code is integrated. In effect, for this one file, the number of requests being served is the combined load of all page views across our customer websites – yeah, all of ’em!

For the curious, here’s the JS widget URL:
http://cdn.widgets.webengage.com/js/widget/webengage-min-v-3.0.js

It is this single widget file that makes all our three products – feedback, survey and notification, work on your website. We use Amazon’s CloudFront service to serve this request. Underneath is an illustration of the number of requests we have served from 1st Aug – 22nd Aug, 2012 – a whopping 70mn requests in 22 days!

CloudFront usage for widget code requests (from 1st Aug – 22nd Aug, 2012)

We are now serving over 100mn requests for this widget code every month. i.e. over 38 requests every second. Ain’t that amazing? We have scaled to these numbers seamlessly as we continue to find ways to serve you uninterrupted.

These numbers are overwhelming for a small startup like ours. As customers, you have pushed us to these limits and I promise that we will never disappoint you. With your help and support, we are now working on our next milestone – a billion requests!

Stay tuned. We love you!
