Product Updates

We at Realvolve push new features, enhancements and bug fixes to production i.e. live many times per day without taking site offline or without the need to show maintenance pages except for the largest, most complex feature releases. We follow the "Continuous Delivery" methodology and thus we do lots of "little" deployments quite often. Our average monthly uptime is 99.55% based on a 12 month Pingdom report and 99.63% for the last 3 months. Thank you for your continued support and suggestions in making Realvolve a great product.
