Services, Gateways and Third Party Providers
Simon utilises a number of Services, Gateways and Third Party Providers to support aspects of the Simon platform as outlined below:
The Database server is an Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS).
Simon is a multi-tenant application with one instance and database shared amongst tenants. Each tenant is segregated by a unique organisation ID in the database.
We use the Apache PHP installed on the application server to send email from the system . The email service is responsible for delivering email messages, such as candidate offers, new users, etc.
The SMS Gateway is responsible for delivery SMS messages, such as candidate offer an acceptance. Our SMS Gateway is provided by BurstSMS
Third Party Providers
There are also a number of Third Party providers, that Simon uses as services for the application:
- Google Maps API
- LinkedIn Developers Plugins
