The Cloud

Employing a cloud environment enables PeopleG2 to manage costs more predictably, increase availability to advanced technology, rapidly access resources, and to mitigate data management risks.

PeopleG2 uses the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform, providing partners with a cost-effective and sustainable infrastructure, which emphasizes business agility, scalability, customization, and best-in-class security. The scale, vast resources, and scrutiny placed on the AWS environment have resulted in an infrastructure that is more secure than a traditional in-house network or “internal cloud”. Our cloud environment enables us to ensure that all technology is scalable, and that all data of your data is secure.

Benefits of Using the Cloud

Performance

AWS allows PeopleG2 to increase platform speed by running clusters of CPU servers on demand. This enhanced speed allows your organization to scale out across hundreds of processors when the need arises. There is no longer a need to leave your potential for success and growth to chance and circumstance. We can fine tune performance based on your actual workload, benchmarking that data so that you are always running optimally when usage spikes occur.

With the cloud, you can improve productivity for you and your team with an integrated system that tracks it all. PeopleG2 will help you effortlessly track and manage job listings, candidate data, and background checks for efficient speed to hire. PeopleG2 has paved the road for smarter hiring: easy collaboration, streamlined processes, mobile application screening, and background checks.

Scalability

When it comes to identifying how many servers you need to run your infrastructure, you shouldn’t leave it to guesswork or predictive analysis. Using AWS, we leverage auto-scaling to build a self-managing infrastructure aligned closely to your actual organizational demands, based on traffic, resources utilization, and real-time needs. Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) allows us to spin-up clones in multiple regions for different environments within minutes. Our streamlined system eliminates the need to repeat initial set-up steps, and eliminates the need to purchase new servers down the road to meet demand. What once took days, now takes minutes!

Reliability

You deserve the best, so we provide it! At PeopleG2, we want to extend the highest caliber of security and performance for our clients. One of the main reasons we partner with AWS is due to their solid reputation as having the highest reliability rating of any cloud service in the market. It offers an extremely reliable environment where replacement instances can be rapidly and predictably commissioned. This reputable service runs within Amazon’s proven network infrastructure and data centers. In fact, AWS is so reliable that we are committed to a 99.95% uptime!

Secure

Amazon EC2 works in conjunction with Amazon VPC to provide security and robust networking functionality for our computing resources.

  • Compute instances are located in a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) with an IP range that we define. We decide which cases are exposed to the Internet, and which remain private.
  • Security Groups and networks ACLs allow us to control inbound and outbound network access to and from your server instances.
  • Using industry-standard encrypted IPsec VPN connections, we will connect existing IT infrastructure to resources in our VPC.
  • For additional isolation, we can provision EC2 resources on Dedicated Hosts or as Dedicated Instances. Both options allow us to use EC2 instances in a VPC, on hardware dedicated to a single customer.
