SmarterSelect operates a live redundant database for its service. In other words, we have a primary database server that stores all applicant data. And, whenever the primary database is updated with applicant data, then a database located on another server is automatically updated. Additionally, SmarterSelect encrypts and backs up all application data nightly to storage facilities that are in a different city than our production servers.
All uploaded file attachments and documents are saved in a cloud-based storage that is located in a different city than the production servers. Also, each file attachment and documents is automatically saved on 3 disk drives in case of a disk drive failure.
