Infrastructure Scalability and Performance.
Vacancy Filler is a cloud-based service built on a shared infrastructure and delivered as a Virtual Private Cloud hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The system has been designed, built and maintained by Vacancy Filler and consequently we need not rely on a third-party infrastructure organisation to maintain the system. This gives us a great deal of control and flexibility and because the infrastructure is based on a multi-tiered architecture it has superior resilience and performance compared with many of our competitors. In a recent survey, Gartner has placed AWS as a clear leader in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) market place.
We are able to increase the number of processor cores, system memory, disk space and network bandwidth remotely in less than an hour. For customers with seasonal variances, we have the ability to increase the system resources when required and conversely reduce the resources when the demand has passed.
During peak times additional server instances maybe brought online to help distribute the load. This computing elasticity is a fundamental design concept of the AWS service.

The resilient architecture allows us to monitor and manage the load on the servers as well as monitoring the potential bottleneck in both the servers and networks and will automatically failover if there is an outage of one of the servers.

Vacancy Filler uses two different performance monitoring products. Alarms in the form of e-mails and / or SMS alerts are used to monitor overall service and to provide notification if the system falls outside of certain parameters or there are is any suspicious activity.
Vacancy Filler will periodically and at least annually, commission an independent third-party penetration testing organisation to check the security, integrity and resilience of the software platform.
