Qudini Hosting Options

Qudini offers two robust hosting options that ensure maximum security and high availability to our
customers with different levels of flexibility and control. This page explains the differences between
our Shared Hosting and VPC hosting options.

Shared Hosting

This is the quickest and simplest way to get set-up, and is ideal for a smaller number of business locations or where there aren’t compliance requirements. We have a number of shared instances to support clients internationally, these are based within Australia, the USA and EU. Clients selecting this option will be routed to the nearest shared server location to their business’ region to ensure maximum availability.

  • High-availability, maximum security and privacy processes are applied as defined here and in our system architecture document
  • Access to our training portal
  • Lower cost
  • Fast to set-up and ideal for small store volumes
  • Can be used for a trial with a later migration to VPC
  • Receive the latest Qudini off-the-shelf features as and when they are released.
  • 14 day period maximum notice period for significant new releases that will impact features used by you
  • Smaller releases and hot-fixes are made consistently without notification in order to release and improve functionality for all customers on the shared server platform.
  • Significant new features have a “Beta” switch applied to enable testing before the feature is made standard across all multi-tenant clients

VPC Hosting

VPC stands for “Virtual Private Cloud”. This hosting option involves us setting up a fully managed hosting instance on a seperate network, within an Amazon Web Services datacentre, for an individual client. This provides the usual high availability, security and backups provided by our shared hosting option. but with the ability for additional security controls and direct connection integrations.

  • High-availability, maximum security and privacy processes are applied as defined here and in our system architecture document
  • Access to our training portal
  • Premium hosting option
  • Additional high-availability is ensured, as your server performance is not impacted by usage of other customers (as would be the case on our multi-tenant solution
  • Optional additional security lock downs: the additional ability to lock-down access to your instance of the Qudini application to a limited set of whitelisted IP addresses
  • Ideal for enterprise organisations with high store volumes requiring maximum control and bespoke features and integrations
  • Control when you receive the latest Qudini releases and features. Enabling you to keep your stores on a fixed software version and to adopt all features at your required pace. Feature information is provided by our email content and your account manager.
  • Qudini can fast deploy bespoke features and integrations in an agile way at your required timeframes, this is not possible with our shared hosting options, where any functionality must be tied into our standard quarterly testing and release cycle
  • Your own unique staging account is provided for user acceptance testing features before they are released
  • Collaborative testing and feedback on your specific features and instance
  • Control the location of your server instances and data storage. If you operate outside of Europe, Australia or the USA, Qudini can locate your VPC instance in the region closest to you. This ensures maximum system availability for your stores
  • Control the location of your server instances and data storage. If you operate outside of Europe, Australia or the USA, Qudini can locate your VPC instance in the region closest to you. This ensures maximum system availability for your stores
