Automatically scale your infrastructure up and down based on your ever-changing document conversion needs.
Peak loads will no longer
slow down or halt your conversion process
As different divisions use the conversion services, the system needs to cope with peak loads. In most cases, period peaks (certain times of day, the end of the month, the launch of a new product) put the conversion platform under stress.
DocShifter automatically scales up and down to meet these needs, without any manual intervention. And when those peaks are finished, the system scales back down.
Scale to handle any workload,
and do it 10x faster
DocShifter’s inherent speed can be combined with the scalability of Docker. That way, the workload can easily be spread over as many resources as needed. When needed. This eliminates the high costs of setting up and maintaining a typical rendering solution that is designed for those rare peak moments.
DocShifter on Docker automatically scales
to handle varying volumes.
How auto scaling impacts
speed and cost
What can scalability bring
to your operations?
DocShifter was designed for organisations in industries that require large volumes of files to be converted.
Frequently Asked Questions
Content transformation is a resource intensive process. Moreover, volumes are often highly unpredictable. And there is typically considerable time pressure to get the results. Think of the volumes of:
1. Compliant PDF files that need to be generated at submission time in Life Sciences.
2. Thousands of payslips that need to be sent at the end of the month.
3. Hundreds of thousands of documents that are flowing into the organisation, and need to be added to a content repository.
Today, most companies have sized their solution for the peak loads. They build huge rendering farms to handle these busy moments. After that, many of these systems sit idle most of the time. Resulting in an environment that is largely over-scaled, expensive and inefficient.
To avoid over stressing your systems, reducing infrastructure costs and getting more done in a shorter timeframe, auto-scaling is a must.
- Scale up, but only when needed.
- Scale down the infrastructure, and related costs during the quieter periods.
- Implement new versions of the conversion software more easily and quickly.
- Allows for central management of systems.
Thanks to the nature of Docker, fewer hardware and software resources are needed to run the same application. DocShifter on Docker allows organizations to save money on infrastructure for high-volume document transformation.
DocShifter on Docker allows for true transversal services for document transformation – serving multiple departments within your organization. Centrally.
No. The cost of licensing on docker is the same as for a standard installation of DocShifter. The number of licenses required depends on your volumes and the required functionality.
