IPOL System Architecture

IPOL Operates on an IIS and .Net stack, which our cloud hosting is designed around. IPOL can also leverage your existing cloud or server infrastrure.

Cloud Hosting –

Our hosting is done by a commercial provider in the Philadelphia region. Over the past 8 years, we have had 99% uptime with the provider. All of our servers are virtualized which allows us to easily migrate between server hosts if needed in event of a hardware failure or outage.

Inventory Pro is hosted in a multi-server environment where the load is split between application servers and database servers. Data is regularly transferred to our backup servers over a secure connection. Our backup servers are hosted off-site and we also utilize cloud backup solutions to collate and archive your data, which we keep encrypted copies of for up to 6 months.

Application servers are what your computer talks to and where your uploaded files are stored. Your data on these servers is backed up nightly to our office and is replicated across multiple backup providers. At any point in time, there are at least 3 recent copies of this data and additional archived copies.

Database servers are where the majority of your information is stored. These servers cannot be connected directly from outside our network. Databases are backed up hourly (we use a 24 hour full, 4-6 hour diff, 1 hour log pattern), such that if needed we can restore to a particular date/time in the event of a problem. We utilize this occasionally for clients if a bad import is run or a user clicks ‘select all’ somewhere by mistake. At any point in time, there are at least 4 recent copies of your database and additional archived copies.
