IaaS, PaaS, lots of open source tech
In addition to the large data center footprint, the service provider has a fairly sophisticated IT architecture to deliver its services. The stack relies on a lot of open source technology.
Electric City Web Company’s hosting services are supported by a single automated infrastructure built on OpenStack, the popular open source cloud architecture.
One level up from the IaaS setup is the company’s Platform-as-a-Service, which provides an integrated set of services to its customers and enables the provider itself to build and deploy new products quickly and easily.
Electric City Web Company also uses open source Apache Hadoop to store and process data it collects through web crawling, local listings, social and mobile platforms to provide business intelligence to its customers.
The company uses Cassandra, an open source distributed database management system, to improve replication of customer data. A single Cassandra cluster can span multiple data centers, which enables replication across sites.
