Rollercoaster.ie is Ireland’s largest pregnancy and parenting website handling 100s of thousands of hits per day. In 2011 Inventise were requested to provide a technology refresh on the site replacing the existing Classic ASP based technologies with a brand new data structure and updating the server code to the latest Microsoft .NET platform.
The project required the migration of huge amounts of existing site data and the profiles and details of thousands of users. The whole migration and switch over from the old site to the new one was carried out with only four hours of downtime, from 12am to 4am. The design of the new site was a considerable challenge due to the volume of data which has to be stored and quickly accessible and searchable on a day to day basis.
