We have designed Aptoma Media Platform SaaS specifications for scalability, availability, security and change. This page specifies the key properties and qualities of the resulting design.
Hosting, development, bug-fixing, security patches and upgrades are handled by Aptoma so that you can focus on your core media activities.
Our design makes sure the AMP platform scales linearly and predictably in response to actual load. All Aptoma services automatically provision additional hardware as required in response to surges in traffic.
We use well-known and well-supported Open Source technologies. The architecture is based on experiences from years of successful hosting configurations deployed at large media groups. We use:
Aptoma services are deployed to multiple data centers in order to ensure high availability in the event of power or network outages. Our services will automatically provision additional hardware to make up for lost capacity in the unlikely situation where one data center becomes unavailable.
We have 24/7 monitoring and response plans for all our platforms and from all providers.
All services are protected by restrictive firewall configurations. Communication with backoffice tools and APIs are protected with SSL.
Yes. This requires setup.
Yes. This is quite normal, actually. You are equally welcome to use our load-balancers and caches, as your own. All Aptoma services support configuring webhooks for purging content from your own cache services.
Yes. Our providers has robust infrastructure and counter-measures in place for DDOS. Any service discrepancies are reported here http://aptomastatus.com/

In addition you can receive testable service URLs for your specific services which you can add to your automated test-suites.
Maintenance work periodically requires outages on production services (we'll make sure you’ll know well in advance), and sometimes even distribution services. Historically outages have very rarely been unplanned, and never caused by peak traffic. Regardless of your service hosting model (SaaS or in-house) we recommend you maintain contingency plans with fallback procedures.
