Hey there, Flat for Education is now 1 year old! Thanks to your feedback during this first year, we have been working during the past weeks on the first large update of this produc...
At Flat we always aim to provide the best tech we can, but we don't actually write a lot about it (yet). Today I will talk you about the global infrastructure we setup for Flat few months ago and that we recently upgraded.
One of the main challenges at Flat is the real-time collaboration and performance for all of our users all over the world, especially when they are really far, for example collaborating between the South-Korea and the Europe. A few months ago, we upgraded our infrastructure to always be able to provide a fast, reliable and quality service.
Our complete application stack (Frontends, API, Real-Time, Micro-services, Database, ...) is running across 3 different locations:
- In the US (New York) for North and South America
- In the Netherlands (Amsterdam) for the EMEA
- In Singapore for Asia and Oceania
We replicate millions of music scores across 3 different locations where they are stored at least 3 times in each datacenter:
- In the US (North Virginia)
- In Canada (Montreal)
- In France (Gravelines)
We chose the best infrastructure providers with the best networks to be able to provide the best service we can with a 100% availability over the last 6 months.
If you have any questions or want to know more, just let us know!
