We have moved to the Amazon Cloud!

Hello, everyone,

I would like to inform you that we have just moved the Web shop server landscape to the Amazon Cloud. At this moment, many colleagues have worked hard for over a year to make this possible.

We didn’t just push the servers into the Cloud, we chose a special cloud approach that gives us more flexibility in the future.

Furthermore for us the infrastructure (server landscape) consists only of code. As a result programming only makes changes. In addition, our Web shop landscape can now breathe, i.e. when we are under strong demand, new resources are automatically booted up! And in the opposite case, such as on weekends, when we have fewer visitors, only the necessary servers are operated or unnecessary servers are shut down.

We extend special thanks to the team who carried out the changeover today.

Best regards,
Thorsten
Chief Digital Officer
