Private or Public Cloud Deployment, the Choice is Yours
Crowd Machine gives you the option to deploy a Private Cloud or use our Public Cloud. Regardless, Crowd Machine manages the implementation so that you don’t have to. With our SLA of 99.9% monthly uptime, and the ability to schedule your own maintenance periods for the Private Cloud offering, you can rest easy knowing that your Apps are available for users whenever they need them.
Elasticity is Built In
The Crowd Computer scales to meet user demand in real-time without you having to manage any infrastructure. There’s no requirement to sign up for additional hardware or software infrastructure, or pay for the resources required to manage that infrastructure.
The result is better App performance and user experience, at a reduced cost of operation.
The Crowd Computer has been designed to deliver exceptional performance. It’s specifically configured to optimize for transactional load by segmenting Apps into synchronous and asynchronous tasks, ensuring fast user response times.
This approach maximizes utilization of valuable hardware resources rather than paying for server capacity that isn’t consumed.
The Crowd Computer is SOC Type I, II & III compliant. It’s also HIPAA compliant for our medical industry customers.
Although your App compliance is up to you, having the certainty that your App’s infrastructure compliance has already been satisfied, allows you to focus on your Apps needs.
App Behavior Load Monitoring
The Crowd App Studio contains a console that allows you to monitor the execution of your Apps on the Crowd Computer.
Furthermore, it provides visibility into what parts of your App are being used more frequently and displays the total compute load of each part. App Builders can use these metrics to fine tune App performance and compute consumption.
An Extensible Compute Platform
The Crowd Computer isn’t just hardware, it contains software services that undertake numerous tasks for the Apps that run on it. You can extend the Crowd Computer functionality by deploying your own services to the Computer and optionally make them available for use to the broader community, the choice is yours.
By creating your own services, you can leverage them across any Apps that you build and the Crowd Computer will take care of their runtime execution for you.
Defense in Depth Security
The Crowd Computer takes advantage of the latest in security technology. It applies security at every level, from hardware through software and leverages industry standard security protocols where appropriate. Virus and malware detection, intruder detection and denial of service software is utilized to reduce vulnerabilities.
Additionally, you can optionally deploy your own SSL certificates to add in an additional layer of security to your Apps. You also have the option to request encrypted storage where you hold the encryption keys. Crowd Machine conducts biannual 3rd party penetration tests to give our customers security peace of mind.
