Note To the Reader
Before jumping into the actual content, I want you, the reader to understand that there are a lot of ways to do this. When you’re making a decision, make sure to do your homework and study your requirements throughly. The approach I’m discussing here was chosen…
Traditionally, web applications are monolithic in nature, meaning they are built as a single application separated internally through some kind of Model-View-Controller pattern. This is okayish for small applications. But as the application grows, or the application is complex, it becomes hard to maintain because:
Its been a while since we’ve posted an update about the platform. We’ve been working hard on the platform — a lot of under the skin improvements were made. Mainly we’ve focused on performance & latency related issues. We were able to optimize a lot of routines that were hogging our resources. We can now say that we’re pretty much on track for optimisation.
One major breaking change that we’ve done is, we’ve moved the app dashboard from https://api.iostash.io to https://app.iostash.io This is a rather big change, many of you guys reported that the app is down — actually we’ve moved the app dashboard! Thats what happened. Only the app dashboard was moved, our MQTT broker address is still http://api.iostash.io
Thats it for now, More updates on your way soon!
We’ve pushed a major update to our servers at 09:50 PM, 06 March 2017 that will let our users change time zone to their liking. Users will now be able to select a reporting time zone that can be set from their profile page (Dashboard > Account > Profile). Time zone set there will be used for triggers, visualisations and streaming.
Major updates coming soon!
Since the launch of IOStash beta, we’ve been on an endless journey to squeeze out last remaining bits of performance from the platform. We’ve been optimising the entire application core to accommodate the data surge and overall platform efficiency. Today (13/02/2017 at 12:06AM IST), we pushed a major update to…
