    What are the benefits of cloud based infrastructure? (-)

    The cloud based infrastructure means that the capacity of the Core dna service can be ramped up and down as required, with ease. The main benefit of this lies in the costs. You are not required to pay a standard hosting charge, which is especially important if your website is busy seasonally.

    There are many other technical benefits such as:

    • Redundancy
    • High availability
    • No single point of failure (SPOF): meaning that if a part of the system experiences trouble, it does not effect the system as a whole from working.
    What infrastructure does Core dna use? (-)

    Core dna runs on cloud infrastructure. Cloud infrastructure provides relief from the dependency on physical hardware. It also provides a solution for scalability.

    In simple terms, cloud computing is a farm of servers that all contribute to a pool of resources. This is separate from the traditional format of one server sitting on one computer.

    What is cloud infrastructure? (-)

    Cloud based infrastructure refers to how it is it delivered. In this case, Core dna is delivered as a service (SaaS) as opposed to an actual product. What cloud infrastructure allows is shared resources, software and information to be provided as a utility over the internet. 

    What is Varnish Cache? (-)

    Varnish is a cache layer in the application stack which allows static/unchanged pages to be returned immediately without requiring processing, this is mostly used for things like images, styles and javascript which don’t change regularly. By default this also caches redirections since it’s much quicker to do a redirect at this layer rather than waiting for an application to respond.
