CFO Tech Outlook | Monday, August 02, 2021

Sovos cloud data center achieves active-active status for delivering the security, reliability, scalability, and flexibility businesses need to meet the escalating demands of tax digitization.

FREMONT, CA:  Global tax software provider Sovos has announced that its globally distributed cloud data center configuration has achieved active-active status for delivering the security, reliability, scalability, and flexibility businesses need to meet the escalating demands of current tax. this milestone comes after many years of investment  in the Sovos S1 Platform, an architecture, development framework, and cloud infrastructure built to deliver tax compliance software wherever and whenever businesses need it, without fail.

Because not all clouds are created equal, Sovos made an ‘Every Season is Busy Season’ promise to customers with its Global Tax Determination (GTD) Cloud solution, to deliver real-time tax calculations supported by two active data centers that can receive traffic and process calculations simultaneously. The real-time sales tax cloud solution keeps customers' most important moments reliably and securely-- back-to-school, day-after-Thanksgiving, year-end tax filing and many more because customer transaction is critical.

“There is intense urgency during these times around the digital transformation of tax. Now more than ever, data needs to be shared quickly, and companies view cloud as the key to staying agile amid accelerating tax regulation changes,” said Kevin Permenter, research manager, IDC. Sovos has made significant investments in technology architecture and technical expertise to help companies prepare for the new normal.”

In recent years, retailers and manufacturers have moved to D2C business models, forcing a shift in availability standards. Looking at this upcoming trend, Sovos made the infrastructure investments necessary to eliminate maintenance windows and failover scenarios, achieving a recovery time objective (RTO) of zero seconds. Unlike competing cloud offerings that struggle to deliver reliable service or require IT support for on-premise or private cloud hardware, systems, and tax engines, Sovos hybrid GTD Cloud solution enables distributed calculation capabilities, centralized SaaS management, and automated tax regulation updates.

Sovos GTD Cloud scales horizontally to handle unlimited transaction volume. It delivers active-active clusters across globally distributed, secure data centers to enable differentiated reliability and zero downtime, even in a data center outage. The solution has flexible deployment options, with modern APIs and certified integrations built on Sovos S1 Platform cloud infrastructure.
