ATLANTA, GA. (September 13, 2016) – CodeGuard, Inc. (www.codeguard.com), the global leader in cloud website backup services announced today a new feature, Sandbox Staging™, which instantly creates test environments for customers with WordPress websites.
“Developers and designers know that they should be using a staging environment for the websites and applications they manage, update, or otherwise contribute to. It’s a widely accepted best practice”, says CTO Jonathan Manuzak. “The reason that many do not is that it’s a time-consuming and technically complex process to set up and maintain one of these environments. We saw an opportunity to simplify this for customers by leveraging our technical expertise and unique position in the market.”
CodeGuard manages a dynamic fleet of servers that perform more than 11 million backups per month and process 450 million API requests over the same time period. 260 Terabytes (TB) are transferred daily, and nearly 100 Petabytes (PB) are transferred annually. Operating at this scale in a reliable, performant and cost-effective way has forced the company to develop industry-leading practices for infrastructure container management and automation. “Combining our world-class infrastructure expertise with the foundational CodeGuard backup product to create a feature that allows our customers to work faster, reduce risk and adhere to best practices? That’s a winning proposition for everyone involved”, says Manuzak.
Sandbox Staging™ will allow customers to test work on a staging site and utilize CodeGuard’s backups to create the staging environment almost instantly. With the click of a button, a new server will be provisioned to host the content stored in the backup repository. Now customers can experiment away from production, test new versions of WordPress safely, explore new plugins, and do all of this without downtime or risk to the production site.
