2012-11-20 Last weekend (Saturday around 6am CET) we successfully moved the planyo service to Amazon's cloud (AWS). The downtime was about 2-3 minutes. This means much better responsiveness and even though the previous configuration was working very well and was very secure, we now have a huge potential for upscaling. As before, the database resides on 2 servers with real-time replication (in different geographical locations) to prevent data loss under any circumstance. Of course we continue making multiple off-site database backups per day. On top of the database servers, as many web servers as necessary (min. 2 at any given time) will be launched to ensure high responsiveness of the service.
