What does the migration to AWS mean for you ?
Moving to AWS enables us to serve our customers with a low latency, scalable and highly accessible application. Along with this migration there are also a lot of new services and upgrades that have been introduced by Qpercom to improve user experience.
As an ISO 27001 certified organisation it is important for us to provide the highest standard of data security. Moving to AWS helps us to fulfil best practice for security and data management with encrypted databases and secured private cloud. AWS promotes the shared responsibility model for data protection. This ensures the security of the underlying hardware with state-of-the-art security standards and we maintain the full ownership of the clients’ data as the data processor. We make sure the data is properly encrypted and backed up.
The Migration Process
The migration process happened swiftly with minimal downtime for most of our clients. The process started with backing up of all the resources we had in Rackspace and replicating the same in AWS. Migration of the database was tricky so we decided to migrate it at the end, once we had all the other resources in place in AWS. We chose to migrate the client database at the weekend to avoid any interruption to usual work and the migration was successful.
Post-migration, we got feedback on the performance on the system and it was reported that clients found loading times for the Qpercom application even quicker than before.
Users of any Qpercom service, including Observe with Video Integration (VI) and Recruit with Video Integration (VI), can now be assured that your assessment and personal data is more secure than ever and hosted on a reliable cloud server that is scalable and easy-to-use.
