Announcing increased data retention for monitoring data

Valerio Barbera

Long story short: In the last 2 months of work we’ve achieved great results in cost optimization by refactoring both our infrastructure and code architecture, and we want to pass this value to you in the form of a longer data retention for your monitoring data.

Thanks to these changes we are increasing our computational capacity, and data processing performance, in order to provide more support for your business growth.

We’ve extended the data retention period by one week for all subscription plans, and the free tier from 3 days of data retention to a week.

Faster data ingestion pipeline

We made some optimization in the data ingestion process in order to reduce database queries and function calls to make the code run by the PHP interpreter more smoothly.

Since we process more than 30 million requests per day even small changes have a remarkable impact on the efficiency and speed the code runs.

Migrating to ARM machines

The most important change was the adoption of ARM instances for our infrastructure instead of traditional x86 servers.

You can read more about the migration results in the article below:

ARM doesn’t support hyperthreading so each vCPU is a physical core instead of a thread. This guarantees better performance at lower costs.
