What Is Double Redundant?
A double redundant SMS gateway means every hard- and software component is redundant in at least one geographical platform. On top of that, a copy of the platform is available in a second different location. Fully separated from the first one. This setup has been very reliable for those clients who were able to make two connections to the two platforms while remaining in full control of the messages routed to each platform.
Lately, we experienced that still a rare incident where multiple hardware components fail at the same moment can happen. So, we were happy to see that our double setup paid off for those able to connect to the other platform. Now we want all our customers to profit from redundancy and high availability and no need to deal with the complexity of implementing two connections to a double redundant platform.
CM.com’s High Availability Proxy
Therefore, we have recently launched CM.com’s High Availability Proxy. It is a geographically redundant proxy connection between our customers and our double redundant platform.
With this new technical breakthrough, we make our high availability promise accessible to all our HTTP SMS gateway customers with just one single API connection. We will automatically detect whether the platform is up and running correctly, when it is not we will make the switch to the other platform automatically.
CM.com continuously innovates its enterprise-ready CPaaS (communication platform as a service) product with expansion into payments and digital identity and offers tailored and transparent pricing and billing.
