When your web, e-commerce, or Software As A Service (SaaS) site collapses under the load of all the new visitors that come to it because your company and/or URL appeared in a TechCrunch.com article that claims how great your company and/or service is. Success or failure comes suddenly based on your ability to scale from a handful of servers to thousands in a matter of a few hours.
