Bizness Apps: Better, Faster, Appier
Blazing into 2016 Bizness Apps is here with yet another announcement. We closed out last year with the beta release of our new app builder, and now we are kicking off the New Year with a slew of performance improvements. From improving your experience when building a mobile app, to boosting speeds internationally when using any of our or our partners’ apps!
Over the years we have seen tremendous growth, and 2015 was no exception. We ended the year transmitting at least 40 terabytes of data—equivalent to more than 11,400,000 mp3 files—each month.
Our largest most recent change was the migration and optimization of a new CDN, which improves speeds for both app and web users globally, up to 20x in some regions.
What is a CDN and how does is effect me?
A CDN (content delivery network) is comprised of a system of servers around the globe to improve content distribution. When a user launches a mobile app using Bizness Apps software or visits the Builder they will now be loading content from one of these servers nearest them. This essentially allows Bizness Apps and all of your apps content to be living in your country, close to both you and your users.
CDN servers will hold copies of text, images, and other content from your mobile applications and send them to nearby computers and devices in much less time than it would take for the same data to traverse through hundreds of thousands of miles of undersea cables. When your app’s data is modified or updated these servers will then store that new information in memory once a nearby user has requested it. This content distribution brings world-class speed and performance with added security, allowing for limitless scalability.
Performance and modernization are the biggest focus of our recent efforts, prime example being our entirely new Bizness Apps Builder. This new app builder uses cutting-edge web technology, improved workflows, and user education paths to allow for quick and easy app development that simplifies even the most complicated features. This CDN upgrade, along with other performance enhancements, will provide an adaptable infrastructure for designing and deploying mobile apps with Bizness Apps in 2016 and beyond.
