>Fluency Backbone: Dedicated DELL servers with 3-tier client/server architecture utilizing Microsoft Internet Information Services IIS version 7.5 and residing in a state of the art co-location facility in Sacramento, California. Technology and services in place in the co-location include 2N+2 redundancy, self-healing infrastructure management system, 24/7/365 hardware monitoring, power redundancy and a blended Internet connection.
Security: Transport Layer Security (TLS) with 256-bit encryption. Redundant SonicWall Enterprise Class Firewalls coupled to Dell’s SonicWall Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite (CGSS) subscription that includes Anti-virus, Anti-spyware, Intrusion Prevention, Application Intelligence and Control Service; HIPAA Regulatory Compliance Report available upon request.
Up-Time/Failover/Disaster Recovery: Our goal is 99.9% up-time, currently we are at approximately 97% with offline time dedicated to upgrades and security updates. Fluency, Inc. utilizes an up to date server environment employing a Dell Power Vault MD series Storage Module operating in multiple redundancies. Should any one of the servers fail the fail-over time window is calculated to be less than 10 minutes total elapsed time from incident to uptime. Image-based backups are performed 4 times a day with full validation daily. Remote “off-site” backups are performed daily. Both local and remote backups have job reporting and automated monitoring in place and both backup repositories are encrypted on-disk. åThe current backup solution is performed by an 8-core server-class appliance and provides for local Disaster Recovery. Should our primary data center go down Fluency, Inc. will operate from a secondary data center– in the unlikely event of catastrophic primary data center failure, less than 3 hours will be needed to resume full operations.
