Infrastructural Upgrade

Invoicebus’ database servers are growing up! We’re super excited to announce the migration of our conventional MySQL database to Cloud Databases, a high performance database on the cloud that brings speed, redundancy and scalability as primary values.

The new Cloud Database service delivers faster applications on the first relational database service built on OpenStack. Furthermore, to protect the data against hardware failure, it has redundant storage with built-in data replication.
Very exciting fact about this technology is that it scales incredibly easy and fast. Practically, a few seconds are needed to scale up the server and apply the new configuration. Pure gold!

Software Update

We’re introducing the real-time Activity History timeline. We believe that negotiating with your client in real time has a crucial meaning. Therefore, instead to wait notification in your inbox, we implemented a way for you and your client to be able to leave comments and track invoice’s activity in real-time. You can call it a live invoice because it looks like a sort of chat. Also, all other actions related to activity history will appear in real time.
