Absolutely. You can start out on a shared web server for a small site, and keep moving
up and out to meet the demand of your users as your site grows. xcAuction is built to
work on a shared web server and that will function fine for many sites. As your site
grows and has more demanding needs, you may need to grow into a dedicated server.
A dedicated server is the next step up for very active sites. When your site becomes
so popular that you need to be able to move beyond what a single server can deliver,
xcAuction can keep growing with you. xcAuction is built to scale up and out using a
variety of methods such as web server farms and clustering solutions. These scalability
techniques and platforms can allow your site to grow fantastically.
From shared web servers; dedicated servers; to web server farms and clustering
solutions, xcAuction is built to keep your site and you business moving and growing.
Multiple server installations can vary significantly depending on the particulars of the
clustering solution you might choose to use and may likely require assistance of XCENT
to tune the software for your particular installation.
