Say hello to our new, faster servers

15th September 2016

Growth is great for us – growing the number of happy customers using YourTradeBase makes the hard work worthwhile, helps us pay the bills and keeps us moving forwards.

But growth can also cause some pain; as we serve more customers, our server infrastructure – the foundation that YourTradeBase is built on – needs to support the weight of more users, more paperwork, more jobs, more emails, more data.

That growth pain was causing slow page loads for our customers, and so we had to put that right.

So these past 8 weeks we’ve been working hard to solve this problem and move to new, faster, larger servers that can better support our growing customers. We’re delighted to announce our hard work has paid off…

YourTradeBase has a new home that’s faster, more scalable, more reliable, and more secure.

The move was completed last weekend with minimum disturbance. We moved over 7,000 customers and over 100,000 quotes and invoices to our new servers on Saturday night with just an hour or so of downtime.

We’re proud of our team for their hard work, and want to say thank you to our customers for your patience whilst we completed this important update.

There are more upgrades planned over the coming months, but in the meantime, we hope you find the new YourTradeBase a faster, more pleasant way to work 🙂
