Pingdom releases brand new Android app

app-ico-blogToday we have released a brand new Pingdom Android app. Like the iPhone app we released a short while ago, the Android app is completely reengineered from the ground up. With a new design and added functionality, the app puts more information about your website monitoring checks in your pocket. Whenever you receive an alert on your Android smartphone we want to help you get to what’s wrong as quickly as possible, then allow you to dig deeper.

The new app is available today from the Play Store. It’s of course free, so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t download it right away.

ab-1503 million unique visitors each day, that is how much traffic Aftonbladet.se, the biggest website in Sweden, handles. Add to that the 15 TB of data the site pumps out daily and you get some idea of the scale of its operations. And keep in mind Sweden is a country with only 9.6 million people.

Here’s what we found out about how they and the rest of the team keep the site ticking.
