We’ve got a pretty sophisticated monitoring system at the Evernote datacenter that’s constantly watching over our servers, databases and load balancers. At the slightest hint of trouble, it sends out pre-configured alerts and our 24/7 operations team springs to appropriate action. A few days ago, the following alert flashed across in-boxes and cell phones all over the company:PROBLEM: 3 Millionth User Alert 2010.04.29/13:04:47 Severity: Warning Holy crap, 3,000,000 Evernote users!
And we sprung, although this time the appropriate action was to have a drink.
That’s a pretty amazing accomplishment, especially since it only took them four months to go from two million to three.
Congratulations to the Evernote team. Well deserved.
