We provide design, development, maintenance and hosting services for the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency’s Personalised Registrations website. The business critical platform allows customers to search for and purchase personalised number plates. The service encounters enormous peak demand on the release of new plates, and the hosting we provide has to be consistently resilient to cope without any detriment to performance.
Before work began, we had to transfer existing databases and content over to a new dedicated hosting environment. Despite the complexity of this task, all of the changes made were implemented with zero downtime – imperative for a revenue-generating service that welcomes tens of thousands of users every day.
