We know how to pick the best infrastructure technology for our clients because we understand what’s at stake. Some clients have needs that are best met on world-class, redundant cloud computing infrastructure. Others are better served by a best-in-breed specialty hosting provider. Some clients have in-house expertise and want to run projects on their own hardware. No matter what your situation is, we’ll determine the best option centered around your needs.
Infrastructure is more than just running a production website or web application. It’s also the entire work pipeline that moves code from being a great client idea to development, then through staging and production. We’re big believers in continuous integration and deployment as well as automated testing. Using these solutions gives us have confidence to deploy improvements iteratively, rather than all at once, reducing risk and improving user experience.
We’ve set up website hosting infrastructure for clients of every level, from startups still building a client base to established sites that handle a huge volume of visitors. We can confidently manage digital infrastructure, load and risk during high-traffic, high-stakes events such as the Kentucky Derby (the most exciting two minutes in sports), or for 40+ newspaper websites on election night.
For monitoring and backups, we use technologies like Amazon RDS to ensure that our clients’ data is safe. We also use independent third party tools to monitor all sites on our support plan, and we maintain standardized incident response documentation. Our on-call rotation ensures that you’re covered 24/7.
Some of the infrastructure tools we use:
- AWS EC2
- AWS RDS
- rsync (sometimes the oldies are the goodies)
- Uptime Robot
