It’s the dog days of 2017, and while 1/4 of our team is away on vacation at any given time, we thought we’d improve on some of our current operations.
One that we really wanted to improve on was the speed and reliability of our website. Previously, we had our servers and domain names spread out a bit all over the place. But with our recent addition of Chameleon cloud running on Amazon Web Services, we felt that migrating everything to a single location, with natural redundancies, was the right way to go. And we weren’t wrong!
The first thing that is most noticeable to our customers is the speed of our sites. Whether it’s bannisterlake.com or our cloud instances. Load up time has drastically been improved. And for us folks, updating things behind the scenes, updating plugins and composing posts and pages are a lot easier to accomplish.
Just check out our server speeds now:
Another big improvement is our support for SSL or HTTPS… or secure website. Again, using AWS, our site along with our cloud services are all secured now, making it safer for our customers but also, giving google some warm and fuzzies in the hope of improving our SEO (search).
News 12 Traffic and Weather launched a few weeks ago using Tick-it and Brand-it. CTV News Channel launched as well using Super Ticker and Brando.
We’re also in preparation for IBC where we will showcase Chameleon to the European market. We will located at the Ontario booth 2.A46
