We’ve been growing rapidly since launching Torbit Insight at the end of April. We are already processing billions of pageviews every month and are currently processing about 15,000 metrics every second. If you’re curious, we’ve added a real time counter to the bottom of our homepage that shows the live number.
We know these numbers can get a bit mind boggling and they’re not showing signs of slowing down anytime soon. As part of our growth plan, our engineers have completely rebuilt the backend of Torbit Insight. Our new “big data” store will allow us to continue our rapid growth while also making it easier to add new features at scale.
As some of you noticed, our old backend was starting to struggle a bit under the load. I apologize to those of you who reported missing data or other weird issues in the last couple weeks. Thank you for bearing with us. The new backend should bring a lot more stability and reliability going forward. Otherwise, your experience should be largely unaffected. We’ve kept most of the features the same and your data has already been imported into the new system. The conversion tab will look a little different for now as it’s being revamped to work with our new collection system. If you see anything else unusual, please let us know.
We’ve been gathering feature requests from our customers for a while. With this launch, our team will be able to focus again on rolling out the features you’ve been waiting for. If we have other suggestions you want us to consider, feel free to send your suggestions directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We love having customers engaged early in the development process as it helps keep us on track.
A huge thanks to our team and especially Jon and Mike on this important accomplishment.
