Technical Considerations

Cloud Deployment

The system is available as SaaS (Software As A Service). It is deeply married to cloud and uses various cloud technologies for reliability scalability, security and disaster recovery. It uses a combination of Google Cloud and Amazon Cloud to provide this in SaaS form.

To ensure that the system is always up-to-date, secure, scalable etc., it is available in Increff cloud only.

Scalability

The system is tested to work for 500 stores and 5 million sale line items (daily aggregated line items, not individual sale line items). We keep working on architectural improvements to scale even more.

Information Security and Disaster Recovery

Increff applies the best industry standards and best technology tools to ensure that all our products are highly secure with proper Disaster Recovery mechanisms in place. These include (but not limited to)

  • User authentication and authorizations
  • User password protection (strength, encryption, renewal etc.)
  • Prevention of DoS and DDoS attacks
  • OWASP Top 10
  • Continuous backups via binary logging,
  • Hourly and daily backups (with a moving window)
  • Disk level data encryption

That said, our security mechanisms and SLAs are bounded by those of the the cloud providers. You can read more about GCP security over here:

Detailed Informational Security related documents can be provided upon request.

Release Management

  • We continuously make releases – approx. once per 2 weeks.
  • Most of code is automatically tested via unit testing and integration testing.
  • In addition, a team of QA experts also test the product before release.
