TalkShoe Traffic and Performance

| Author: TalkShoe Team | In Announcements, What's New Print This Post

Over the past 6 weeks, the usage of TalkShoe has grown by leaps and bounds. Over the past month alone, TalkShoe has seen both its web traffic and live show participants grow by a factor of 10x. On Sunday, Dec. 3rd, we had the largest live Talkcast show with 930 participants, which was a 2x increase over the previous record. It is safe to say this was the largest interactive podcast ever.

Some users have experienced performance issues with the TalkShoe website, and the live software interface.

Here’s the scoop:
- Bandwidth for traffic & web audio streaming is more than sufficient, and our ISP partner has more where that came from.
- Tomcat, Apache and database access servers are being added along with clustering software.
- The linux operating system is being upgraded.
- The TalkShoe application and database software are being continually optimized.

We’re racing to improve performance and provide a high level of service. Onward and upward.

TalkShoe has officially entered BETA (http://beta.talkshoe.com). We’re now actively seeking people to join the Beta to try and test out our website. TalkShoe allows you to create both live and recorded conversations - Talkcasts - about any topic with other TalkShoe members, or your friends and family. You can speak (voice) and chat (computer) at the same time. Or you can listen to or podcast (soon) a recorded Talkcast. And when we go live in a month or so, you’ll be able to make money hosting Talkcasts.
