Paladin Data Systems’ SMARTGov moves to Amazon’s Web Services
SaaS-based software improves disaster recovery, uptime, and speed with AWS
Poulsbo, WA – February 14, 2013 – Paladin Data Systems Corporation announced today the migration of its cloud-based software product, SMARTGov to Amazon’s Web Services (AWS). The move to AWS will allow SMARTGov to more efficiently deploy all aspects of software maintenance including regular enhancements, hot fixes, DBA, real time back-ups, and disaster recovery procedures, all with a 99% availability guarantee.
“For our jurisdiction clients, reliability is a paramount concern and with Amazon’s Web Services they can be assured that all SMARTGov database administration is being performed behind the scenes in real time and they no longer have to worry about creating system backup files and managing disaster recovery protocols,” SMARTGov Business Development Manager, Jonathan Byrd said.
SMARTGov is able to leverage a number of Amazon’s Web Services solutions to reduce costs, which are passed on to the customer and improve disaster contingency plans. With Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud, known as EC2, SMARTGov is able to scale and align its SaaS responsiveness to its customer’s demands throughout the day. Leveraging Amazon’s S3 services, allows SMARTGov SaaS customers to have quicker downloads and more secure access to their file attachments. Amazon’s S3 file storage service is the same infrastructure that runs Amazon’s own global network of websites.
SMARTGov SaaS infrastructure is monitored by using Amazon’s Cloudwatch services, which allows Paladindata to take advantage of better monitoring tools for SaaS customers and quickly respond if the need to move over to fail over datacenters or zones become necessary. In addition, the ability to rapidly deploy maintenance releases helps keep SMARTGov relevant in the ever changing Permitting software world. These features allows Paladin Data Systems avoid any long term downtime which could adversely impact its SMARTGov SaaS customers.
SMARTGov is designed to help community development and building departments operate more efficiently and includes solutions for managing the permitting process, manage citizen requests and code enforcement actions, limited building inspections, licensing, a public portal, and a GIS mapping system which integrates with other GIS systems.
