At my office we use a LAN (connected to internet through Comcast) and 30-50 people all accessed a web app (on Heroku) simultaneously. The server responded as if it had been hit by 50K people. Am I barking up the wrong tree, or would it make a difference if 50 people on an office network hit an app at the same time versus 50 people spread across the globe?
Apologies for such a vague question, but it only just occurred to me as a possibility.
Thanks in advance.
