How we solve your problems
We will write your business requirements
We will clarify your tasks, identify current problems and
Based on the requirements, we will select servers, decreasing or increasing their number, we then plan their deployment, fault tolerance, data capacity, etc.
We configure new servers, launch virtualization, divide project components into virtual/physical servers, structure the data, clean up, fine-tune and optimize each component.
After checking the new architecture, we will transfer the data to new capacities and direct traffic to them.
If you are using your old server, we will perform reverse migration of the configured virtualization. Proxying will reduce the downtime to just a few minutes.
After migration, we will setup proactive monitoring and organize a local and remote backup system. We will address incoming challenges: installing and configuring software, opening access, optimizing configuration to handle
We guarantee safety and reliability
I’m afraid to give your administrator access to sensitive information
Every Southbridge employee signs the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that imposes a heavy penalty for disclosure of sensitive information, whether it is server settings or data stored on it. Violations never happened.
We necessarily sign NDA
I’m afraid of being hacked through you
We connect to the servers through additional protection algorithms, including one-time passwords (OTP, 2FA), add bruteforce checks, close all with firewalls that are not necessary for work.
I’m afraid that an emergency will happen at night, and your administrator will postpone the problem until the morning
If the on-duty brigade can not repair a malfunction, it will raise an administrator by the call from your team. We will fix the problem, even if the emergency happens on New Year’s Eve.
There is such a mess on my server. I’m afraid that you will not understand
We take servers in any condition. At the initial setup, we put things right: we structure and optimize projects, delete rootkits, remove duck tapes.
I’m afraid that after you no one will be able to deal with my servers
A high production culture has been introduced in Southbridge. We aspire to unification and standardization. We support a clear structure. We document non-standard solutions.
I am afraid of losses if you do not cope with my tasks
We sign the agreement on service level agreement (SLA). It regulates the maximum downtime time, processing speed of applications and material compensation in case of violation.
I have doubts about the competence of your specialists
We have a large portfolio: 10 + successful CI/CD system integrations, support for 600+ dedicated servers and 30 + Kubernetes servers. We support servers, which are visited by 2+ million users every day, and generate 16+ Gb/s traffic. We were handed over to support the servers of Alfa-Bank, REN-TV, Gold585, Azbuka Vkusa. We will definitely cope with your servers.
How will you ensure an uptime of 99.95%?
With the help of DevOps-tools Ansible, Docker, Kubernetes and aligning CI/CD-processes.
I’m afraid my project will not have enough attention
We unify and replicate solutions. We set up proactive monitoring of hardware for each client. We introduce the new technology to everyone. 164 clients gave us one server for support, and no one complains about the lack of attention.
I’m afraid that you will formally provide support, but my problem will not be solved
We start with the formulation of the business problem. What is your problem? When you make a newsletter with discounts, your online store starts to slow down because of the influx of visitors, and instead of selling complaints are piling up? Your developers roll out a new release of the site manually, and you want to automate the process? Telephony can not cope with the scrum of 200 people from 10 countries? Then we offer a solution.
