As you probably know, Transloadit has been running its production infra on Amazon's cloud since day 1 - our block stores, encoding servers, load balancers, the full monty. Except for 1 often forgotten, yet essential part of infra: our name servers.
Yesterday however, we successfully completed the switch to Amazon Route 53 name servers.
So basically half the world could disappear and (assuming you're with the lucky half) you should still be able to resolve Transloadit's hostnames to IP addresses! Now isn't that nice 😄
Furthermore we'll be able to scale a bit faster because - thanks to their API (and a nice wrapper) - we can further automate launching and cleaning up after our encoding servers. Or drones as we like to call them.
So that's it, all of Transloadit's infra is now proudly running on AWS - no exceptions - and we hope you'll sleep even better knowing this.
