J’étais impatient depuis plusieurs semaines d’essayer le tout nouveau site www.zude.com. Le tout semblait spectaculaire afin de faciliter la conception de site 2.0. Hier, avec mon code d’accès prioritaire… rien ne fonctionnait. Aujourd’hui, date prévue du lancement officiel, on pouvait y lire le message suivant:
Welcome to Zude
On Monday, April 30th, we launched our pre-beta release — and within 2 hours the amount of traffic we received exceeded our wildest expectations — and our server’s capacity! In response, we feverishly worked throughout the day to move the servers to a larger platform.
Twenty-four hours later we officially launched the public Beta for Zude. This time it only took 45 minutes for the traffic to reach a deafening level. What we have learned from this experience is the following: (1) clearly the world is curious/excited/hopeful/interested in Zude, and (2) our most optimistic projections could not have prepared us for the flood-gate opening — and ultimately the words « not prepared » best describe our situation.
As such, the best thing we can do is to convert our hoped-for public beta into a private one. We believe that only then, with a measure of control over the massive level of traffic that we have received, will we be able to help bring Zude into the global internet community.
If you have already signed up for the Zude beta, you will be receiving an email shortly with details. We hope you will consider helping us accomplish these tasks.
Thanks to all for their supreme patience and understanding.
— Jim, Steve, and the entire 5g team
Aucune date prévue pour la réouverture : je suis triste.
