Big Changes Coming in 2020!
Every few years we consider large scale changes to our infrastructure in order to leverage new offerings or technologies for the benefit of our clients.
For example, a few years ago we transitioned our technology infrastructure from our "classic" provider to Amazon AWS and the scalability and global reach of Amazon enabled us to support the growth of our client base, diversify our offering with dedicated servers, and open additional data centers in Canada and France in order to better serve our local clients from these regions.
Well ... in 2020 we will transition our computing model from server-based to container-based. The container technology delivers the same kind of optimization as the freight industry gained when adopting standard-sized shipping containers. Cividesk wants to leverage this technology to bring more efficiencies to our hosting, new service offerings and the ability to right-scale each client for better performance. We have been piloting container technology for the past few months and have been thrilled with the results! We will have our first containers in production by the end of 2019, and migrate our first clients starting with the new year.
More details of the benefits of the container technology and our migration plan will be forthcoming so we can best schedule your migration according to your availability.
