- Improved fail-over and high availability. If a physical machine failure occurs, the Woopra.com website will be automatically migrated to another physical node, resulting in dramatically less downtime.
- Scalability. As the site becomes more highly trafficked we can increase the compute power without needing to deploy additional servers. This is important because of the new Web based analytics that are coming very soon. We believe they will create a great deal more traffic to the site than in the past.
- International hosting. Although all of Woopra’s servers have been historically located in the US, as we grow we will be expanding our physical presence into European and Asian markets.
This week we made the strategic decision to migrate the Woopra.com hosting infrastructure from a dedicated server platform to a virtualized platform. This move will help ensure that Woopra users have a higher level of availability to log in and access the service, as well as make sure we keep response times quick and page loading fast. Other reasons for the move include:
