Ensuring business continuity

Information security is at the top of our minds since day one.


  • Everything is considered as unsecure, even communications within the same rack are encrypted.
  • Only HTTP and HTTPS ports are publicly opened.
  • Servers are always running on the latest stable version of nginx web server.
  • Infrastructure is protected by multilayer access control.
  • Servers located in datacenters built following the industry security standards.
  • A continuous security testing through a public bounty program is opened on HackerOne.

No need to worry. We keep your data safe!

Disaster recovery

An incremental backup of your data is built every couple of hours.

For a faster service recovery, a client-side encrypted copy of the data is also sent to the closest AWS S3 region.

No matter what, your data won’t get lost!


We are passionate about sharing how we build and fix stuff.
