vWork continues to grow we need to ensure that our technology stack continues to grow as well, ensuring the performance and availability that you deserve.
We have just recently moved to a new hosting provider. From the 3rd of October 2015, we have shifted our technical infrastructure to Amazon Web Services.
Amazon offers us better uptime, faster performance and the ability to dynamically add more servers in a matter of minutes if load increases. All ensuring you a better experience when using vWork.
Some amazing Amazon Web Services statistics are:
- Used by Netflix, AirBNB, Nokia, IMDB and Yelp
- Estimated at over 3 million physical servers
- Over 30 Global Datacenters
This was a large project for the team and we are happy to have completed this on time with minimal disruption or issues. Our Project, I.T. and testings teams did a great job.
We are now seeing around 50% faster in response time for the website and we are excited to be able to ramp up the server power during our peak times.
Amazon web services is generally known as a Faster, more agile and Secure service for web apps.
vWork your mobile workforce platform is more future proof than ever with this change.
