Web Development Technology an overview of our technology skillsets
Development Platforms and Core Technology

As web development and web trends have changed dramatically over the last five years the technology that powers the web applications has changed to meet web 2.0 requirements. Very few developments are now created with straightforward html - or with one technology. To build powerful, functional and eye catching websites requires a blend of technology.

Because x2cms is not limited to one "flavor" of technology we advise you impartially on all elements of your development including operating system, server side code, client side code, multimedia and mobile platforms. Growth, demand, availability, visitor platform are all considered when developing your website.

Physical vs. Cloud Hosting

Despite the recent trend towards "Cloud" hosting the technology is in fact similar to the existing physical infrastructure. Your hosting may be "virtual" but underpinning the service are physical machines. In conjunction with our hosting partners we can advise the ideal infrastructure to support your development - both now and in the future.

In broad terms cloud computing is at its most cost effective for mid-range resources including bandwidth and storage. Start up projects and very high resource projects will likely benefit more in terms of cost and flexibility from a physical infrastructure. However, if your development needs to scale fast or cope with "Oprah moments" then there is no substitute for virtual hosting.

Every client is unique - therefore every solution is unique.

Browser and Mobile Platforms

A vital task of any web developer is ensuring that your project is visible, compatible and functional on your visitors chosen platform. x2cms thoroughly test your completed development against all standard browser types and can advise you on issues your visitors may face - in advance.
