What happens when an entire country decides to exercise your app at the same moment? How do you architect an app, platform and IaaS where a second of downtime results in thousands of pounds of missed donations.

This was the challenge we faced to support the 2017 Comic Relief charity drive. The campaign is aiming to raise over £100 million and culminates in a 7 hour BBC telethon on March 24th.

Come and hear from Comic Relief (customer), Armakuni (app developer), Pivotal (operator), and GCP (IaaS provider) talk about the challenges and solutions faced in preparing for and supporting the 2017 Comic Relief event.
