New Azure servers for Ultimate Forms
As you might know, our app version of Ultimate Forms runs in part in Azure App Service environment. App Service is the PaaS (platform as a service) infrastructure that provides managed web server functionality. Whenever you use actions, alerts, print or other component, it's the app service that actually handles the task. We have several locations around the world and you are automatically directed to the closest one to you, to ensure best peformance and in some cases, such as with EU, to adhere to data data sovereignty regulations.
Azure App Services offer a wide variety of server level, from low-powered testing units and all the way up to enterprise-level beasts. We choice the best, most cost-effective combination, based on usage patterns. App Services have a built-in ability to regulate the actual number of running instances based on load parameters.
Recently, Microsoft released a new server level, that combines greatly increased power and speed with competitive pricing. We promptly decided to take advantage of this new offering and migrated all our current location to the new infrastructure. This process was completed a couple of days ago, without any interruption of service and without any downtime. The old environments have be deleted and currently all our locations are running on the new platform. Although it hasn't been enough time to draw definite conclusion, from what I can see, the average response time has decreased, together with memory and CPU usage. This is great, as it means that the servers are now capable to swiftly handle even greater spikes in activity without hiccups. And, as an added bonus, our automatic scalability limits have been doubled!
I'm sure you will notice the improvement in the system's speed and agility.
