NEW YORK, N.Y., March 6 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- EASEUS, a leading hard disk management solution provider, today announced a public apology for the online EASEUS Partition Master Professional Edition giveaway failure on Feb. 27, 2009 due to a hosting crash.
Last Friday, EASEUS established a free giveaway in cooperation with MakeTechEasier.com, allowing a 24-hour unlimited free download of EASEUS Partition Master Professional Edition full version. MakeTechEasier.com posted an announcement of this activity on their homepage and many other big sites like LifeHacker, DownloadSquad, DSLReports, eeeuser, etc. regarding this giveaway event.
During the first two hours of this event, there came tens of thousands of download requests for the full version of EASEUS Partition Master Professional Edition. There were 38,000 clicks on MakeTechEasier and more than 50,000 on LifeHacker. Too many downloads caused a host crash of the EASEUS website. Then the giveaway activity was forced to stop and users from various sites could not download EASEUS Partition Master Professional Edition anymore. 24-hour unlimited downloads only lasted 2 hours.
Below is the original email from hosting provider:
"The server has crashed as a result of this morning's high volume of traffic that is coming into your Web site. It looks like over 50,000 downloads have been made."
And now, we are trying to solve this kind of issue to ensure that there will be no such problems for the next giveaway activity. We are extremely sorry for the giveaway failure this time. Here, EASEUS may provide another 24-hour free download of EASEUS Partition Master Professional Edition full version once we solve this problem.
