Migrated server platform

SimonC @SimonCollin

We've been looking at how best to scale up and harden our server environment to give us capacity for growth but also secure the data. An obvious solution is cloud (eg AWS) but a lot of the professional service companies we're talking to at the moment don't want to use cloud-based providers for their data (GDPR is top of mind at the moment in the UK).

We've gone for dedicated servers with hardware firewall and a separate server for the frontend. Hugely over-specified but secure and means our London-based servers help potential customers worried about where their data is located.
