Mintox Infrastructure Upgrade


After more than ten years at our current data centre, Clue Design is pleased to announce that we are making a significant investment in upgrading our hosting infrastructure, migrating our servers to Amazon Web Services Sydney.

We’ve seen a significant growth in the Mintox user base over the last year and it’s led us to move to new technology with more scalable infrastructure. With future expansion and growth on the horizon, as well as continuous deployment architecture, we’ve invested in more hardware to make sure that we can instantly add capacity, scaling up and down as required. Massive redundancy and increased flexibility means we can easily accommodate higher demand as our customers grow.

The new servers offer a safe, durable and secure platform for online businesses, with multiple physical and virtual security measures that conform to industry best standards, including military grade perimeter controls and a complete firewall. Amazon Web Services is fully PCI and HIPAA compliant and is ISO 27001, FISMA Moderate and SAS 70 Type II certified. The servers power hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world, with clients ranging to multi-national corporations to app and social media companies and new start-ups.

Introducing Mintox Private Cloud

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud is different to normal public cloud because all the hardware exists in a private, isolated section of the Amazon Web Services Cloud, protected by a dedicated firewall. All sever resources are ours alone to control as opposed to normal cloud setups where the resources are shared across the user base. This means extra security for your website as we are the only ones with access to our cloud.
We’ve been working with Amazon Web Services to design scalable private cloud architecture, making a major investment in planning our server migration to Mintox Private Cloud. As a valued Mintox customer on our SAAS model, these improvements and upgrades will come at no additional cost to you.

Mintox Private Cloud is based on proven technologies so we can instantly increase capacity and grow with our user base. The Elastic Load Balancers on our servers allow them to easily manage any sudden traffic surges and spikes, rerouting unhealthy traffic to a different server, meaning websites using Mintox will continue to be ultra-fast and high performing at all times. This consistent browsing experience is ideal for enterprise and e-commerce sites with lots of rich content.
