We are preparing a significant upgrade to our advanced workflow automation feature (GlobiFlow), which is planned to go live on Saturday, September 14, 2019, with a larger maintenance on the platform.
As a part of the upgrade, we will be moving the hosting of your advanced workflows from Rackspace, US to Amazon Web Services in Ireland, EU located closely along with the rest of Podio.
This means we will have both Podio and the advanced workflow automation feature co-located in the EU and can leverage the great technology provided by Amazon Cloud to deliver even faster and stronger workflow automation for our customers.
As a part of the move, workflow automation and access to http://www.globiflow.com/ will be temporarily down as we perform the upgrade.
Please follow this scheduled maintenance event for further updates on timing as we make the move.
Podio and the native basic workflows will continue to be available during the maintenance event.
If you have questions about general hosting of data in Podio or security and compliance of the Amazon Cloud, please read more details here.
How workflow automation can help your team?
If you are not already using our advanced workflows to improve internal processes and automate repetitive tasks, find more details here. Our existing customers are saving 248 hours a week in average by automating repetitive tasks and enabling their teams be more productive and get things done faster. We would love to help your team get started as well.
Why the move to AWS?
In 2018 we had 700 million workflow actions trigger to help our customers automate repetitive work, and this year we continue to see a growth in usage of our workflow capabilities. AWS provides us with great flexibility, and also helps us scale and develop our products more quickly and easily. AWS has high-performing, reliable, and secure data centers around the world that will allow us to continue to provide our customers with the best possible service experience as we scale.
What will I need to do?
Customers that are required to whitelist GlobiFlow IP addresses for SMTP, remote post or other services will need to whitelist the following new IP addresses before September 14 to avoid service disruption.
We will continue to keep our IP address page up to date here.
