Browshot network

We operate more than 15 servers in the world (private servers and Our architecture is very dynamic: we add and remove servers according to our customers' demands.

All important services are redundant: databases, cache, distributed file systems, etc. Browshot is still fully operational if one or more servers go down.

For better performances, users access through their closest access point.

Browshot monitoring

We have multiple layers of monitors to ensure that Browshot keeps running smoothly.

Passive monitoring

On each server, we monitor the resources (CPU usage, disk space, network traffic, etc.) as well as metrics specific to Browshot (API response time, number of screenshots processed, etc.).

We use the information to ensure that we have enough resources to support the growth of Browshot.

Active monitoring

All services are actively monitored and restarted automatically as needed.

Third party monitoring

The website and the API are checked every minute from different locations in the world. If a server is unreachable, it is automatically taken out of the DNS resolution, and automatically added back when it is reachable again.
