This summer’s investment in new architecture sees our Rental Platform page performance increase by 40% and set for future growth.
In June this year we moved our Rental Platform and RAC BusinessClub to new architecture with our hosts Rackspace. Over two weekends and after plenty of preparation the systems moved to new server hardware at their state-of-the-art data centre. This was all done with our organic investment as part of our commitment to system performance and growth for our customers.
The extra power that these servers provide also means that the performance of our systems has increased. Page request processing on the servers now takes a third of the time on average, which has led to an overall page speed increase of 40% for our Rental Platform.
In addition to our own efforts, the migration to the new architecture involved some DNS changes made by our customers, our thanks again to those involved.
