Sometimes it’s better for us to give you a full rundown of how these features work, and what they will look like to you in everyday use. So, to make the new range of feature released easier to digest, we procuced a video summary to accompany our latest release notes! This will be a new way for you to view the latest features being released going forward.

Our April Quarterly Do | Back to the top
Let's play Guess Who! Can you identify anyone from the moneyinfo team from the Lego portraits we created at our recent quarterly social event? We took part in a range of Lego building challenges such as guessing the portraits we made of our moneyinfo colleagues, building the highest free standing Lego tower, and creating a landmark in the West Midlands that the rest of the team had to guess.
The rest of the evening was filled with good food, a few drinks, and catch up conversations. We always look forward to our events and spending time together unwinding, it really helps us to live our BOLD, TRUSTED, TOGETHER company values.
There are plenty of reasons to love working at moneyinfo, drop us a line if this seems like the right fit for you, or read more on our meet the team page here.
Migration to Azure
| Back to the top
We are appointing two new sub-processors and moving our current dedicated data centre at RackSpace to the Microsoft Azure platform.
Azure is a cloud computing platform provided by Microsoft that offers a range of services for businesses, including virtual machines, databases, storage, networking, and analytics.
We are migrating our services to Azure because it offers a range of benefits, such as a reduced risk from physical hardware outages, a reduction of vulnerabilities and forced hardware upgrades, and the ability to expand required resources more easily to meet our clients’ requirements.
There will be some small changes to our internal processes, but no, moneyinfo will not need to re-architect your applications to work with MS Azure.
The key questions you will need reassurance on are:
- Data Security. Protecting your data is paramount and at the heart of this project. All data will remain UK based as it is now and the data security model for MS Azure is of the highest standard, matching or exceeding Rackspace in every area.
- Disaster Recovery. Should we have to invoke disaster recovery for any reason, using MS Azure we can replicate our environment and be back online quickly.
We are planning to complete this migration by the end of May 2023 and although the physical migration may take a few hours, we will work to ensure the absolute minimum downtime and carry out all migration work outside of peak traffic & office hours.
We recently sent the full communication, if you need the full briefing documentation of this system change, please click here for our Azure FAQ and here for our Notice of Appointment .
