Due to the overwhelming success of the Aria Cloud Hosting Infrastructure, we have experienced a rapid growth over the last couple of years; our SAAS platform has grown over time and now processes client transactions worth hundreds of millions of dollars a month.
The shift by many of our large clients to switch from running their applications in house to running them in a multi-tenant application platform supported by a first tier data center with robust capabilities has been a quick one; this has prompted us to constantly upgrade our infrastructure.
Earlier this year, Aria’s IT department saw the need to re-design our SAAS platform taking advantage of the latest technologies in order to achieve higher up-time, better security, greater performance, scalability and disaster recovery.
Aria’s IT put together the requirements for the new platform and after an extensive search, a Network Integration firm with extensive experience in large scale deployments has been selected to design, test and deploy the new Aria application platform. The decision has also been made to switch from a private to a public cloud platform to take advantage of the many benefits offered by a public cloud.
As of today, the testing of Aria applications on the new platform has been completed successfully and we are now in the process of selecting a cloud vendor that will host our production environment. We expect the new platform to be live on the public cloud within 3 months.
Here at Aria, we are excited about these improvements and feel that cloud technology is a transformational technology that is bringing beneficial innovation to our clients while also solidifying the benefits of Software As A Service.
