ShowMeTheParts Gets Server Upgrades

Vertical Development has announced server upgrades for The upgrades began with a new server infrastructure that is faster, more reliable and easily scalable to keep up with demand, the company says.

ShowMeTheParts-LogoThe new system has real-time monitoring, which tells the company immediately if a server goes offline so Vertical Development can work on getting it back up and running as soon as possible. The company said that in an effort to be more transparent and accountable for its service reliability, it plans on releasing monthly uptime reports in the near future.

On the software side, the company has upgraded its applications to use the latest web technology and allow for centralized roll-outs. With new versions of browsers coming out almost daily, Vertical Development said the ShowMeTheParts team is constantly testing its software to make sure it works perfectly on all major platforms and browsers. By switching to a centralized release system, the company can push changes to customers immediately, so everyone using its products will always have the latest features. That means reliable results across the more than 1 million application lookups per month — no matter how end users are accessing the database.

Using a car analogy, the company explains that most novices are only concerned about making the engine fast. But, if they don’t put the same time and money into the brakes, steering and suspension, they will have a car that is fast but unstable. Just like with the internet, fast but unstable is likely to cause a crash.

“Our recent upgrades give you both speed and stability,” the company stated. “The added performance gives us room to grow, and we’re still able to roll out new product information in a matter of days ensuring that the information you and your customers use is always up-to-date. Simply put, ShowMeTheParts works even better now and will continue to work as we further expand our software’s capabilities.
