Recently, the Exigent Technologies Software Development team had the opportunity to deliver another SiteLink API integration for a multi-state self-storage provider, Snapbox Self Storage. Snapbox Self Storage is a self-service storage provider that currently owns and operates 26 facilities across eight states.
As part of a major web-presence redesign project, Snapbox wanted to optimize its search-engine performance and presence. One key to that effort was quickly retrieving, processing, and delivering facility information and storage-unit features, price, and availability to the front-end web site almost instantaneously.
Fully cloud-based solution leveraging Microsoft Azure services, including Azure SQL Database, Azure Functions, and Azure Tables. Exigent combined these technologies into a serverless architecture that
Imports facility information, storage-unit inventory, and reservation details from SiteLink via their SOAP API;
Transforms and stores SiteLink data in a persistent, near-real-time database cache optimized for rapid data retrieval;
Retrieves, packages and delivers facility information and storage-unit inventory to the Snapbox public web site in response RESTful web-service calls invoked by real-time user searches;
