Common Cloud Native Concerns

  • What if we have poor internet connectivity?

    FactoryFour can be accessed through not only standard WiFi and ethernet connections, but additionally through basic 3G data access. For clients located in areas of poor internet connectivity deployment can be successfully achieved through internet failover solutions offered by your network provider or through 3G/4G wireless-enabled hardware devices.

  • What if there is a cloud outage?

    A highly redundant set of servers are used throughout FactoryFour’s web application infrastructure to ensure that major cloud provider outages will have little to no effect to our clients. This allows us to provider a greater than 99% uptime for all of our clients.

  • Who owns our data and how is it protected?

    All data created in and stored within the FactoryFour system is owned by the client themselves and stored following best practices for AWS Cloud usage. All data transmitted to FactoryFour is encrypted at rest using 256-bit encryption and encrypted in transit using SSL. For more details you can refer to our Infrastructure & Disaster Recovery whitepaper .

  • What hardware is needed for deployment?

    Internet-enabled computers, tablets, and mobile devices are the most common pieces of deployment hardware used by FactoryFour clients. For more details on recommended hardware solutions you can reach out to our team .
