The system has several layers of backups in place. We utilize several data protection strategies including ongoing backups and fully redundant replicas of master databases spread out across several data centers in multiple locations. Lightspeed Systems is self-certified with Privacy Shield (http://privacyshield.gov) for data protection and privacy.
Lightspeed Systems software has been architected to protect against single points of failure. Application stacks are distributed across multiple physical locations including Amazon cloud services. These are geographically separated and use multiple Internet providers. We utilize geographically distributed dynamic DNS with very short TTLs to route users to the closest application stack. If a stack stops responding it is automatically pulled from the DNS distribution and users are rerouted.
Updates are typically performed during non-peak hours and new features are normally released on Friday nights.
Users are advised of coming changes beforehand and given information for using new features via e-mail, announcements and other documentation.
