Bluestone PIM runs as a fully multi-tenant SaaS solution on the largest cloud solution on the planet, AWS. Under the hood, we have split our application into more than a dozen different microservices, which automatically scale up and down depending on how much they’re being utilized. This means you will always have a power reserve for that big processing task. Also, you will not be affected by other customers’ use of the solution, as we’ll scale up more instances of the services you need while they’re using another.
Getting started with a PIM solution has traditionally required buying and setting up some serious hardware in a data center, and paying both for the boxes and their management, not to mention the up-front software license. If you go with Bluestone PIM, we have all that covered, and this means you can get started without having to invest up-front in any hardware or software.
At Bluestone, we take our uptime seriously. We know that keeping Bluestone PIM available 24/7 is what enables you to serve your customers globally whenever they need information and content about your products. Our operational model allows us to update our services without taking the solution offline. To ensure high availability, we also keep all our production-level services and databases running across multiple data centers (availability zones), so in the unlikely event that one data center is down, you’ll be served by one of the others without even noticing.
Bluestone PIM is an API-first solution, meaning that everything in our product is exposed through REST API endpoints. Whether you’re looking to import a million SKUs from your ERP, sync the media assets in your PIM with your advertising agency’s DAM, or simply need to provide high-quality, up-to-date product content to your webshop, you’ll find that Bluestone PIM’s well-documented API is ready for you. We provide two main sets of APIs: the Management API, which is used to exchange product content with the PIM, and the Public API, which is a lightning fast read-only API for retrieving the latest validated and approved product content for real-time use.
