Have you checked to see if your vehicle is listed among the 34 million vehicles requiring to comply with the Nationwide Airbag Recall?  With over 250 million vehicles registered in the United States, there is a chance that yours could be one of them.

On May 22, 2015, there was a major recall and shortly thereafter the VIN Look Up Website received more than 120,000 requests every thirty minutes. The current infrastructure was struggling to keep up with such demand placed upon it. With fears that this website could be the next fiasco for the American people, our very own Support Engineers were immediately engaged to design a horizontal scaling process for the infrastructure. Team ActioNet responded quickly to both stabilize current infrastructure and expand it by adding new Virtual Machines for application servers and a clustered environment for the Oracle database. Working tirelessly on evenings and working weekend hours through Memorial Day, our passion for the customer ‘s mission was evident and on display. On May 29, 2015, the new scaled environment was migrated into production where it currently keeps pace with the increased demand generated by the airbag recall.

So go ahead and check out your vehicle’s VIN to see if it meets requirements for the airbag recall at the VIN Look Up Website. We guarantee the website is ready to take on the traffic and thanks to our dedicated team members.
