When Michael Phelps bought a ring for his girlfriend at a small retail shop then shared it online, thousands of his more than one million followers flooded the website of this small jewelry shop. That massive increase in traffic could’ve caused the site to crash. But as a customer of WebScale, the site was ale to adapt. Businesses dream of having their website flooded with orders. But for some, when it happens, it’s a nightmare! Everything comes to a stop in the surge of traffic. Why? Because they don’t have the infrastructure to support the number of people creating transactions on their site. Webscale CEO Sonal Puri talks about how her company is helping businesses of all sizes leverage the cloud to avoid crashes. In our “HealthTech” series, Stroll Co-founder and COO Matt Maurer talks about how he’s helping doctors guide their patients on the best, most cost-effective options for medical tests.

Plus, UpRamp Managing Director Scott Brown shares four startups that have the potential for disrupting the Cable industry.
