For the Web:

Five virtual machines enabling them to host the CloudExpert (Evoliz white-label software) and Evoliz services, as well as their programming interface (API), services for their applications and a front-end reverse-proxy to distribute requests from other VMs.

For storage:

Evoliz has a physical machine that can store production data from their virtual machines.

For databases:

A master-slave infrastructure manages the production databases. The master-slave configuration consists of a read-write server accessible by the application, the master, and a read-only server, the slave. Each request executed on the master is replayed identically on the slave, in order to have a second copy of the data available in case of an unrecoverable problem on the master. This also allows regular backups to be performed without pausing database use, because the application only interacts with the master server.

For the mailboxes:

The needs can be summarized as follows: access to several mailboxes with a large storage capacity. So we used a dedicated mail service and several shared messaging services Aqua Mail to meet these needs.

The Web-Storage-BDD infrastructure thus hosts the Evoliz application and its white label variant for many users every day.
In order to move towards a more up-to-date environment, both on the server side and the application side, we regularly update infrastructure elements such as Web machines.

Within the framework of outsourcing, we monitor each of these services 24/7, and guarantee a recovery within 4 hours in the event of a breakdown. All data and infrastructure configurations are backed up every day, ensuring that we can restore lost data very quickly.
In addition to these backups, a snapshot of each virtual machine is made regularly.
