Taking the challenges into consideration, we designed and built a cloud based load balanced solution so that servers can come online automatically to handle surges in demand.
The site itself has a timeline and lists all of the bands tour dates from 1969 including archived recordings that users can download – either for free or at a small cost. Fans can join the popular 1000 Club which gives them a number of benefits including free downloads and the opportunity to attend “Family and Friends” events.
The site has close integration with social media platforms and users can listen to samples of tracks before they download them. The site is fully content managed and news items and diary updates are posted on most days.
