Scaling & Optimization
One of the challenges of success is maintaining a responsive and consistent experience for your users as the popularity of your product grows. We design highly-available software that grows with your your userbase.
Ask people what the most important thing about a web application is and you probably won’t get the right answer: Availability.
You can have the best website in the world, but if your customers can’t get to it, it’s a failure. The constant availability of services is our priority. We not only build the code and designs that make up a product, we also ensure the infrastructure for a consistent experience that keeps you on line.
On the web, speed is king. Decreasing your page load times by fractions of a second can make you thousands of dollars. Nobody likes a slow site, but now that you’re here, you don’t have to worry about that.
We bring years of experience and knowledge into the fight for performance. In-memory caching, database optimization, load testing, proxies, compression technologies, and more are all comfortably loaded in our tool belts, for you. We’ll have them drawn and deployed before you can blink.
Being a fast-growing business is a good problem to have, but it can be tough. You need enough capacity to handle everything the internet can throw at you, and you need to make it cost effective. We’ll work with you to find the right combination of technologies, tools, and platforms to keep your business humming along.
We’ve built everything from mom-and-pop sites that run on a single server to automated, world-spanning, cloud-based, service-oriented, hyphenated-buzzword-rich applications that run on many servers and handle hundreds of requests every second. No matter how small you start or how big you want to grow, we’ll take care of you and your customers.
Monitoring & Metrics
You cannot manage what you cannot measure. That’s why we build monitoring and metrics collection into all of our networks, products, and services.
We track the low-level, where we’re ever-aware of and proactive about managing our infrastructure. Things like hard drive failures and network latency can affect the performance and availability of your application. That’s why we watch and take care of them before they become problems for you.
At the high-level, you want to know what’s happening in every aspect of your customers’ experience. Being able to know the details of your application’s behavior and usage patterns is a powerful tool that can make your business the best.
When you build a product that runs on the internet, you’re making a pact of trust between you, your customers, and those you choose to entrust to build the software. We take that trust relationship very seriously.
We’ve built systems to comply with industry standards like HIPAA and PCI, and even if those compliance requirements aren’t there, we use our deep knowledge of how network security works to ensure your customers’ data is safe. We even have a data center in a secret location that is immune to nuclear attack (not kidding.)
Backup & Restore
Nobody likes to do backups, but it seems everybody likes to have their data available to be restored when disaster strikes. Let’s hope it doesn’t strike your business, but when it does, you’ll be happy to know we are serious about keeping your data safe and recoverable.
