Once you have a peace of mind that all transactions going through your system are secure, your next care is not missing a single one. Times of high traffic are the ultimate test. If you have planned any big sales, viral or marketing campaigns, games and contests offering prizes, you are incentivizing your customers to interact with your website or app more than usual. That does not only mean higher than the average load. It means twice the frustration if something is not working.
Save yourself the trouble and prepare in advance. Stone investigates your game plan together with you – expected traffic and user behavior – and builds a custom test for your environment. A simulation of thousands of users is pushed across your website to investigate potential bottlenecks, and general capacity. The result is a capability report with suggestions for adjustments.
Good preparation is key, however, when handling money, you need insurance. Stone houses its infrastructure in two high-ranking data centers in Belgium - in Brussels (Diegem) and Antwerp. Facilities guaranteeing you high availability of 99,982% to 99,995% and secure connection. Redundant power supply and redundant network. While taking all precautions, we always recommend a backup solution. You decide on your own backup schedule. For important time periods, backups can be scheduled as close as 5 min away from each other. We offer you file level backups, backup of your databases and to regularly take OS images. Building transaction logs in-between to make sure not one bit is ever lost. Backups are stored securely off-site.Send an inquiry
