Online shopping retailer Flubit announces deal in partnership with Barclaycard.
Flubit’s infrastructure includes four databases with security systems across the system, an automated platform with more than 40 VMs and seven dedicated machines.
Aaron Beadle, Head of Infrastructure and Technology for Flubit, said: "We have just moved the entire platform from shared cloud hosting to a private cloud solution to give us greater control over provisioning and costs and to meet the greater security requirements being placed upon us by our partners."
Flubit was said to having problems with the latency of their MySQL replication, which meant APIs were being served to servers which did not have the correct data because of tiny time lapses.
Melbourne introduced a new technology called Galera providing near synchronous replication meaning it updates all the servers before it commits so the data is always there.
The company has now 100+ systems behind Flubit that automate different and specific functions.
Matt Gardiner, Sales & Services Director for Melbourne, said: "Our technical team has worked closely with Flubit to ensure they have the necessary security and latency to support their unique etail business as they grow and develop relationships with bigger partners."
Only recently Flubit went live with its first major partnership with Barclaycard’s Bespoke Offers.
The provider gives costumers better online deals having already saved just under £3 million since operations began.
Users normally copy paste a link of a product from Amazon.co.uk on the Flubit website to get a better value for their purchase.
Flubit users typically ‘demand’ a better offer by pasting a web link for the product they want from Amazon.co.uk.
Aaron Beadle of Flubit continues: "For me you have to look at the bigger picture with your hosting provider not just the cost. You have to look at your confidence in their team, your confidence in their support and Melbourne give you all of that."
With a strategy to build technologies that will improve users online experience, Flubit has recently raised nine million pounds in investment.
