Significantly Upgraded Infrastructure Delivers Remarkably Fast and Reliable eGovernance Solution
ATLANTA (January 6, 2015) – Emerald Data Solutions™, Inc., developer of BoardDocs® board management solutions, has announced the integration of four server upgrades at the Company's Denver, Colorado and Sterling, Virginia data centers. As a key part of a newly refreshed hardware infrastructure, BoardDocs users will experience a significant increase in performance and responsiveness, with enhanced search capabilities.
Emerald Data Solutions experts have been working tirelessly to optimize reliability and increase performance at their hosting environments. Four new Sun X4-4 servers from Oracle deliver more than ten times faster performance boost for all BoardDocs services. Each server has two top-of-the-line, cutting-edge Intel E7-8800 v2 15 core processors and support up to 3 terabytes of RAM on each server. These servers are consistently providing near-instantaneous performance for some of the most intense requests. BoardDocs users will see the largest performance improvements in searching, copying meetings, generating minutes and publishing.
“These upgrades allow us to provide best-in-class performance and reliability to our existing subscribers, while giving us the ability to manage exponential growth,” stated Ari Ioannides, President and Chief Architect. "We will also be able to deliver even more features and services that our users have requested."
Anticipating rapid subscriber growth, Ioannides felt the need to invest in the new hardware. However, the servers are just part of the upgrades. Emerald Data Solutions is investing over $250,000 in infrastructure improvements, including new Cisco switches, F5 load balancers, expanded array storage and a new firewall.
