AWS Batch Processing
The FreeAgent platform uses AWS Batch processing to automatically and dynamically allocate resources to all data processing jobs based upon which resources are needed most. Performance is never compromised no matter the scale or needs of the data processing.
FreeAgent utilizes AWS Lambda as a serverless compute service to reduce the need for server management, and for automatic scaling logic for consistent performance at any scale. No matter the scale, performance needs and response times are never compromised.
The FreeAgent platform architecture makes use of AWS Aurora, a relational database engine compatible with PostgreSQL. This database engine makes use of fast distribution storage which grows automatically as more storage is needed. No matter the database needs FreeAgent can grow to accommodate any business’s data.
