Reliable Infrastructure

We follow GDS guidance for public sector organisations. We make use of the public cloud from AWS and maintain a managed WordPress platform (PaaS) that is:

  • Highly Redundant: We distribute services across multiple servers to mitigate a single point of failure.
  • Scalable: When your site spikes in traffic or demands extra resources, HappyPress will get the extra resources automatically.
  • Self Healing: HappyPress can understand when service failures occur. On the rare occasions that this happens, servers are replaced automatically.
  • Orchestrated: Every change is version controlled, providing you with complete transparency about who, what, when, where changes were made. 

System, WordPress and Plugin updates

Instead of worrying about if your website is secure we update every aspect of your website. Now you can focus on what you do best.
