    New Feature
    Aptranet EdgeStore

    Finally, after much planning and development, we're excited to unveil the latest addition to our groundbreaking product, Aptranet EdgeStore.


    Say hello to the UltraIOPS tier – a game-changing storage solution designed to catapult web application performance to unprecedented heights on a global scale. Our unwavering commitment to ensuring every user experiences exceptional application performance, regardless of their location, has driven us to create the UltraIOPS tier.


    Global Performance, Unleashed

    To achieve the remarkable planet-scale capacity that Aptranet EdgeStore proudly offers, we've forged partnerships with leading providers capable of instantaneous scaling. These partners are seamlessly integrated into the Aptranet Edge infrastructure, ensuring unparalleled global performance for the UltraIOPS tier. Our goal is clear: deliver a consistently superb user experience for every application request, anywhere on the planet.


    Benchmarking Excellence

    Curious about the UltraIOPS EdgeStore tier's performance prowess? We put it to the test against various cloud providers, including industry giants. Our benchmarking process involved hosting a 250kb image on each platform and subjecting them to millions of requests across Aptranet Edge regions over a span of hours. The results were illuminating.



    The EdgeStore Advantage

    While traditional object storage services experience variability and sporadic response time spikes due to network conditions, Aptranet EdgeStore paints a different picture. We observed an astonishing 40% reduction in median Time To First Byte (TTFB) compared to Standard tier HDD storage and an even more impressive up to 90% reduction when compared to AWS S3. The 99th percentile measurement experienced a similar transformation. In testing, the 99 percentile TTFB improved by a remarkable 83% compared to both Google and AWS.


    Disruptive Performance, Sensible Pricing

    You might be wondering about the cost of such a revolutionary performance. The good news is that we've redefined expectations here as well. Despite the disruptive leap in performance, the Aptranet EdgeStore UltraIOPS tier comes at a price that defies convention. Our mission is to make next-generation global performance accessible to all, and that's why we're thrilled to announce that UltraIOPS is priced at just $0.03/GB per month per region, with absolutely no additional management or per-request fees. Remember, it's all SSD. Our Standard tier is priced lower than both AWS and Google's traditional object storage solutions, just at $0.02/GB per month and when you enable more than 2 regions it drops to $0.015/GB per month. Isn't that awesome?


    A New Era of Performance

    With Aptranet EdgeStore, we're ushering in a new era of web application performance. Whether you're running a small startup or a global enterprise, your users deserve the best – and we're here to make that a reality. Say goodbye to performance woes and embrace the future of performance-driven storage.

  3. From NodeJS to Golang: How Aptranet Improved Backend Security and Scalability


    For any business trying to prosper in the rapidly evolving world of technology, staying up-to-date with the newest trends and tools is essential. Recently, we at Aptranet decided to start from scratch and rebuild our backend. To increase security and scalability, the major objective was to transition from NodeJS and a NoSQL database to Golang and a relational database.


    Our old set-up had been helpful to us at the start of the company, but as time passed, we recognized we needed a more durable solution. We decided to transition to Golang and a relational database after much study and preparation.


    Golang is a language that combines security and performance in a special way, making it a fantastic option for complex corporate applications. Data integrity is one of our top concerns, and its robust typing and static type checking helps to ensure that. We have a lot more control over our code using Golang, which leads to faster better-performing code.


    The change to a relational database had a substantial effect on our backend as well. We were able to guarantee data consistency and integrity with a structured data model in a way that was not achievable with a NoSQL database. The execution of sophisticated procedures on our data was further facilitated by the use of SQL queries.


    However, advancements continued after that. Our backend has also received several new security improvements. For example, we implemented API key permissions, which control access to particular services based on the key used. This assisted us in guarding the privacy of our client's data and preventing unauthorized access.


    Along with security, we concentrated on enhancing error handling. We were able to find and fix possible vulnerabilities by handling errors correctly before they became significant issues. This increased the security of our backend even further and made sure that our clients could entrust us with their private information.


    Overall, it was a strategic choice for us to start fresh with our backend. We were able to increase security and scalability while maintaining the integrity of the data by migrating to Golang and a relational database. To further strengthen the security of our platform, we have included additional security features and enhanced error handling. At Aptranet, we're dedicated to providing the best level of security and performance to all of our clients.
