  9. 9. Our Approach Our success comes from our approach. The ONEsite Team leverages a highly-collaborative approach to the planning, design, implementation, launch, and ongoing management of its communities through the underlying technology of the ONEsite Platform. Every client is assigned a project manager and tech lead. Our development and design team works with our clients, through a dedicated Project Manager, to get our customer‟s communities launched. We work with our clients on best practices we have learned, share our experience, and work collaboratively from concept to implementation and throughout the lifetime of the client. ONEsite‟s diversity of deployments and customer-driven roadmap have led to the creation of the most scalable, flexible, and extensible platform in the industry. Beyond its technology, ONEsite has set itself by working closely with clients from concept, to implementation, and on as the community grows. ONEsite is as much a services company as a technology one, and the result has been highly customized sites that are tailored to our clients‟ audiences and ultimately more successful – whether it is driving sales, advertising revenue, or simply brand excitement and involvement. Our customer-driven roadmap has created a platform that continues to evolve and provide greater depth of features, more flexibility, and provides our clients with a competitive edge. © 2009 ONEsite, Inc.

  13. 13. Performance & Scalability ONEsite‟s Platform was built from the ground up for scalability, flexibility, and performance. ONEsite‟s software as a service model has been security and stress tested by our leading clients. ONEsite has two data centers. Our primary data center has three independent gigabit fiber connections and we maintain our own backup data center 30 miles away in the basement of a major financial institution. With minimal performance impact, ONEsite could operate without either data center or any server. Multi-layered security and caching approaches provide best of breed security and performance. Our hosting environment is a hybrid between traditional dedicated and shared hosting. Major clients are provided a pool of application servers managed by our F5 load balancers. The network design and user data is isolated logically. The caching servers, media servers, and database servers operate in a shared cluster environment. This approach enables us to nimbly provide each client greater scalability and performance without the risks of one client‟s traffic impacting the performance of another client. © 2009 ONEsite, Inc.
