WWE Network sign up rush overloads WWE servers

 
 

As 9AM hit, WWE fans across the U.S. hit the WWE.COM website to sign up for the WWE Network, slowing down the servers and making it difficult to sign up for new accounts.

WWE acknowledged the problem and issued a small statement saying, “Please be patient if you’re ordering WWE Network as we’re experiencing extremely high demand. Your order will be processed as soon as possible.” Two of the coolest tools that have ever come out from Microsoft are certainly Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Access. Microsoft Access databases have certainly become more prevalent over the last 2 years as large corporations break the imposed ban on using the tool. Many of our large corporate clients and government clients have stymied development in Microsoft Access for varying reasons which can include security issues or simply the IT Managements belief that they don’t want to support the application. Some of the reasons why IT Departments do not want Microsoft Access in their environments are quite valid. For example, the use of Access Databases in high security areas such as in the Education Department for storing student information, Department of Defence systems, Hospitals storing patient data are all valid reasons why data should not be stored in a MS Access Database. However, one of the key advantages that Microsoft Access has is the ability to build a software system to manage a range of services very quickly.

The downside is that Microsoft Access on its own is very un-secure and can easily be lifted without any trace using a USB Stick or CDROM. But there are ways to secure Microsoft Access and to prevent data from being lifted. Protecting your SQL databases can mean saving thousands for your company in terms of ensuring productivity, meeting regulation requirements, and preventing downtime and data loss. Here are a few tips and tricks to ensure that your SQL databases are deployed correctly and available when the data is needed most. In addition to the data itself, a SQL server includes the transaction log as well as the system databases. Both must be carefully protected if the application is going to be smoothly restored. SQL backups can be performed while users are actively querying the database and transactions are being processed. SQL backups utilize a lot of system resources, especially I/O, so it’s best to perform intensive, full backups when the system is experiencing light load times. SQL server offers different backup methods-full, differential, and transaction backups. There are built into the SQL server. Choosing the back-up method depends largely on your environment. Specifically, it depends on how large the database it is and how critical the database is to your business. Full backups can weigh down your servers and storage systems, so plan carefully how often you need to perform a full backup versus differential or transactional backups. Small databases that are not too large and change infrequently can be backed up only daily or weekly. Transactional databases that are mission critical should be backup up as often as possible. The system databases are the other vital component of a SQL server application, including both msdb and master. There contain essential data such as system configuration and are necessary in the event of a complete restore. However, the system databases change less frequently and should be backed up at least weekly, or daily if it is a particularly active database. One of the greatest factors that affects performance and protection of the Microsoft SQL server is the I/O of the disk subsystem.

The actual streaming service is not suffering from any issues and once signed in, streams start playing immediately with no buffering at all.

A post later on Facebook stated that WWE’s technology partner Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM) was overwhelmed with traffic and their systems were unable to process most orders since 9AM due to demand for WWE Network.

“MLBAM has been working aggressively to resolve this issue,” the WWE Network statement said.
