Motor industry e-commerce specialist Epyx has invested in additional domain servers across the globe, bringing the new total to 17, to ensure that it provides uninterrupted service for fleet and dealer users.
Previously, it used five domain servers but the new arrangement includes a much greater network of machines located in places as far flung as Seattle, Frankfurt, Singapore, Tokyo and Sydney.
Gary Gibson, head of customer services at Epyx, explained: “Fleets and dealers rely on our 1link platforms being available online at the moment they need them in order to carry out crucial business transactions in areas such as service and maintenance, daily rental and vehicle disposal.
“The new global network of servers means that any issues that threaten access to the platforms – from server failure to regional internet outages and even including natural disaster and terrorist attack – can simply be routed to another part of our network.
“It really does provide a very high degree of reassurance for users.”
