Function Point Productivity Software, provider of creative project management solutions, has upgraded their system infrastructure to a cloud computing environment with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The fast-growing company needed greater scalability to match the needs of their users—ad agencies, design studios and internal marketing departments—and AWS provides this, as well as increased reliability, delivery speed, server redundancy, and additional back-up systems.
“Amazon is known as a book company; we know them as a dependable cloud computing environment that gives us tremendous flexibility and reliability, while ensuring the integrity of our systems and our clients’ data,” said Chris Wilson, President and Founder of Function Point. With the migration to AWS, Function Point’s data services have been sharded, or broken down into smaller chunks, across multiple servers, achieving improvements in performance, including boosting the reliability of uptime from 98% to 99.997 % availability.
In addition, an exponential increase in the company‘s server environment includes redundancy that spans across regions. Function Point is now able to provide services on multiple continents with local, dedicated servers. The benefit of quick scalability, is the company can ensure the speed of the system matches the demands of their users. “Knowing we can scale our server environment in a matter of minutes is important,” said Alon Sabi, Vice President of Development Services at Function Point. “Working with this world-class cloud computing technology has been such a pleasure. I sleep better at night knowing we have this project completed.”
Function Point’s utilization of Amazon CloudFront, an innovative content delivery web service, has also improved speed by delivering static content to users with a much higher delivery rate. To safeguard client information and data, extra back-ups have been added that work in real time. Furthermore, these new back-up systems can be deployed as part of Function Point’s main infrastructure in very little time, raising client service response time to an all new level.
