We provide advanced hosting services our private cloud infrastructure within Amazon AWS.
Amazon AWS is a leading provider of cloud services and was recently named as the leader in the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Magic Quadrant report for the 6th consecutive year.
Qobo utilises multiple servers for each project. This allows for a flexible and robust setup as web servers work differently from the database servers and having these applications on the same machine negatively affects performance.
The Qobo servers are concealed from public access inside our Amazon VPC (Virtual Private Cloud). These servers do not have public IP addresses and are not available for direct connection. All traffic in and out goes through Qobo and Amazon load balancers, firewalls, and other infrastructure to ensure peak performance and hardened security.
We utilise automated procedures for server provisioning, configuration, monitoring and backups. This minimises human error and maximises the reliability of such procedures.
We have an automated monitoring system (Zabbix) which continuously checks that all infrastructure and applications are working properly. In case of any warnings or failures, automated notifications are sent to the appropriate people, and if insufficient or no action is taken, the issue is escalated.
We provide robust backup procedures. All servers and applications are backed up daily. For systems that have a lot of data changes, we can provide additional backups. We implement a rotation process, where we keep daily backups for a week, weekly backups for a month, and monthly backups for a year. Backups are also synchronised offsite, to prevent any chance of a data loss from the Amazon AWS side.
We work on a basis of providing 99.9% uptime.
