Everbridge IT Alerting Scalability

I think scalability was part of that architectural review we did about a year ago where, when they encountered that outage. One of our challenges to them was, "If you're a cloud-first solution yourself, how do you not build your platform to be highly scalable?" Literally, spin up, spin down, any time you want or any time the demand suggests it. Initially, the scalability was good but not great. Since then, I think it now borders on great. They've learned some lessons. They've restructured their platform a bit, and it is highly scalable. I've never seen a performance problem. We have about 155,000 workers around the globe at Cargill, and there are maybe 5,000 who log in with some regularity to the platform to do message queuing or message sending or message response or self-service profile updates; I can log in and change my cell phone number, or specify that I want to use my cell phone as my primary and my work phone as my secondary. That capability has never been met with any comments from our community saying, "It doesn't perform well." View full review »

We didn't have any scalability issues with it. I don't have a comparison point, but it easily handled everything we threw at it. View full review »

Director Of Service Operations at Finastra
In IT Alerting, we have around 400 users. In our Everbridge instance, we have everybody in the organization, which is close to 11,000. When we initially started using the product, we were at around 4,500 users. We were able to more than double that with ease. I know other much larger organizations who are using the platform without issues. In the most recent user group that I attended, they were showing us a lot of improvements on their back-end and database queries, so they could continue to scale. They can pretty much handle any scale that has been presented to them, so far. View full review »

David Valerius
Communication Manager at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We've had no problems with scalability. We brought in Everbridge shortly after we had bought another company and started merging together into a new, unified company. That, obviously, brings some substantial scaling challenges. But we've encountered no issues with adding many, many more users to the system over the last several months. We only have a couple of hundred people directly interfacing with Everbridge, maybe a few hundred. But as far as the users we're communicating to, it's a few thousand and that keeps increasing as we progress. View full review »

For us, the scalability is great. We're going to go larger later on, but right now it's working for us. On our scale it does 1,000 of us in IT and for that it works perfectly. As we get bigger and push it out more to more users, we'll find out more about the scalability. View full review »
Manager at a transportation company with 51-200 employees
In this budget cycle, we just purchased some more seats for notifications and we're trying to get all of our in-house staff on it. It was pretty simple. We called them, we told them what the deal was. They were willing to work with us, to work with it in the budget cycle process. As far as scaling up and working within the budget cycle, they understood all that and were really helpful in getting it worked out. View full review »

Scalability seems to be very robust. When I look at not just what we're doing with it but what it can do, if we were to put the proper amount of effort behind some of the integrations, the scalability is good. I'm looking at changing a number of things in 2019 and there will be opportunities for more integrations so that we take better advantage of the platform. From a scalability standpoint, that headroom is there. It is just up to us to identify those opportunities and take advantage of them. View full review »
David Paul
Lead Pipeline Designer/GIS Specialist at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
We are not a heavy usage, enormous company, but I see no limitations to the scalability of it. You could use this if you were a small company, and you could use this if you were a 4500 person U.S. company or a 200,000 person global company. I could see how it would scale up very easily.

IT QHSES Business Manager at TechnipFMC
Scalability is pretty good. We haven't had any issues. Our GSOC is using it right now, which is give or take 20 people. However, it rotates and shifts personnel, so they are not using it all at once. View full review »

So far, no issues with scalability. Anytime we have a request for a function, they work at meeting that request and eventually get it to us. View full review »

Scaling can be a tedious endeavor if users and contacts are manually created. View full review »

We have been able to expand the tool and are planning to take it to the store level. In our organization, we have 390 management users currently. We are looking to add 250 more. We have requested to have 650 management user licenses in the future. We currently have 9000 member users. We are looking to add another 3500 member users, so we have requested 12,400 member licenses. View full review »
