Are you familiar with load-balancing, multi-server hosting and docker deployments? No?! Alright we still got
you covered. Technology that used to be reserved for tech-savvy startups with DevOps teams becomes readily
accessible for anyone with Codesphere. With traditional hosting, you are always stuck with a single server.
You can get a faster server on some enterprise plans but there is a physical limit to the possible improvements. With Codesphere's
unique cloud infrastructure you can add as many servers as needed, incoming traffic will be
distributed automatically. This improves your rankings with ad services and lowers the drop-off rate of customers.

Interview with Adrian @ Böserkater.de
Q: What convinced you to move your e-commerce business to Codesphere's cloud infrastructure?
A: The first major advantage is how competent the entire team at Codesphere is. No other cloud provider has former Google engineers making sure my shop takes full advantage of the new amazing infrastructure. That is actually the second thing, Codesphere's infrastructure is unlike any other in the market, here I can balance the incoming shop traffic between multiple servers which increases page speed significantly. Increased page speed in turn increases our return on ad spend.
Q: What about your updating workflow, can you tell us a bit about how you handled updates to your shop before and after your move to Codesphere?
A: Sure. Our shop is vital for our financial success so I usually handle updates myself. With our old provider the whole process was rather stressful because we always risked downtime if things didn't go as planned. Now with Codesphere, this process is much easier. I have an additional server with an exact copy of our shop, where I apply any update or change first. There we can test as thoroughly as we need until we are confident everything works. Once that is done, we can simply point all our customers to that shop version with a single click. This eliminates risks from updates and makes us more confident to continuously deploy improvements for our customers.
Q: The option to direct customers to one of the multiple shop versions makes things like A/B testing a lot more accessible too, what is your take on this?
A: Yes, that was also one of the things that convinced us to switch. We are still at an early stage with our tests but the whole Codesphere team has been amazing with their support and we at Boeserkater are super excited to dive deeper into all the new options this opens up for us!
A/B test just about anything
With Codesphere you can set up different versions of your shop with a few clicks. Our hosting allows you to compare any two versions of your shop. Simply create a copy of the code base, change the desired features, and select a workspace for hosting. Codesphere will automatically distribute your users randomly. Combine that with your existing tracking or analytics to compare how each version performs. The only remaining limit to what can be tested and improved is your imagination.
Anyone who has ever deployed updates knows that a lot of things can go wrong. Your shop's availability is critical to your business? We understand that! Just as you can run clones of your shop for a/b testing, Codesphere has staging environments with clones of your shop. In this environment, you can apply updates, try if everything works as expected, and once you are confident point your customers to this version with one click. If you realize later that something is not working, you can switch back just as easily. We take away the anxiety of deployments so you feel free to explore improvements confidently. In this example, there are two identical flexible servers, Staging and Production. Updates can be tested and afterwards you simply swap the routing of the domains with one click, the staging environment becomes the new production environment and vice versa.
