Many IT managers are curious about what is "under the hood" with our software and hosting.
We believe in full transparency, so instead of vague descriptions regarding how we build and host our software, this page describes our technology stack in detail.
Your website's uptime and security is as important to us as it is to you. That is why we utilize the best datacenter providers, the best cloud features, and a combination of proven technologies for running our web applications. We utilize Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the largest, best, cloud provider in the world. We use four different edge locations, including one in Canada. Our application platform runs entirely on AWS.
Evo.cloud ( www.evo.cloud ) is our latest website management system. All of our applications come standard with our hosting.
Many federal government agencies are now using Amazon AWS ( https://aws.amazon.com/federal/ ) because of its power, scalability, cost benefits, and improved security.
The stack listed below is for evo.cloud.
Did you know that one of the largest municipal website design companies has had several massive Distributed Denial Of Service (DDOS) attacks that brought many of their customer's websites down? When evaluating your website vendor, ASK THEM if they have had such an attack, why it happened in the first place, and what they have done to correct the vulnerability. If they mention using CloudFlare to prevent DDOS, know that CloudFlare is an additional cost.
While DDOS attacks cannot be completely prevented, our systems are MUCH more resilient against these types of attacks. Ask your vendor if the websites they host share IP addresses, and how they are allocated. Traditional web servers whose DNS uses an IP for their A record in DNS are very vulnerable. With the nature of the cloud, you do not need to use a static or shared IP address for your website's server any longer. Our servers in fact use MANY IPs that change frequently, making your site much more secure.
