Canada’s nation-wide realty firm, Sutton, needed one extremely stable, secure, and responsive infrastructure platform to host the vast majority of their public sites, and their entire slate of internal web applications. IONICA worked tightly with the client and growth-driven eCommerce agency, The Jibe, to design and build Sutton’s most robust production environment ever, consisting of redundant web servers, load balancers, and database cluster deployed on over 30 cloud servers in IONICA’s powerful custom hardware at our Vancouver point of presence. Technologies and frameworks hosted include Drupal, Laravel, WordPress, and Ruby on Rails. Sutton’s all-IONICA solution includes a complete disaster recovery environment at our Montreal point of presence.
Major luxury British automaker
When a major British luxury automaker required maximum up-time and capacity for their sites, IONICA got the call. Through our close collaboration with the client’s developers and agency, we designed, built, and manage a robust environment to ensure their sites stay fast and stable through every campaign and every day.
Pacific National Exhibition
A Vancouver icon and mainstay for over 100 years, the PNE is an amusement park, concert and sporting venue, and events centre. The PNE needed a more robust platform to handle massive traffic spikes preceding major events like The Fair and concerts, as well as marketing campaigns. Up-time is critical to the PNE’s business, and IONICA rose to the challenge with a custom-designed high-availability, and highly scalable cloud environment built on our own insanely fast hardware at our Vancouver point of presence. A complete disaster recovery environment ensures the PNE site will be up and available during any contingency.
BC Patient Safety and Quality Council
A part of the BC Provincial Services Authority, the BC Patient Safety and Quality Council’s purpose is to “enhance patient safety, reduce errors, promote transparency, and identify best practices to improve patient care.” The Council needed a more reliable and robust platform for their 20+ WordPress sites on a limited budget. BCPSQC’s IONICA-built system and services have delivered unprecedented up-time, security, and performance over our four-year relationship.
University of British Columbia
UBC needed a partner who could help them bring enhanced stability and sub-three second page load times to their 200+ Drupal web sites. IONICA performed a comprehensive analysis of UBC’s Drupal hosting environment, covering the areas of stability, security, and a particular focus on performance. We are currently redeveloping UBC’s Drupal code and site deployment process with Jenkings, Aegir, and Git, to make it more efficient, error-free, and simple than ever.
