We renewed our Virtual Private Server (VPS) cluster including our monitoring procedures. The servers are part of the hosting and support solution for our iDelft customers. We primarily host webportals developed in-house with Drupal. In addition, we support some older VPS servers that we took over from Triquanta ealier this year. We are in contact with the customers because we want to fade out these servers in the near future.
Upgrade of our VPS cluster
WerkenBijPeutz.nl is now on-line
Critical Drupal Security patch
iDelft applied today an important Drupal SA-CORE-2019-003 security patch at client websites. A vulnerability of Drupal in combination with RESTful webservices occured. Only a fraction of the websites is being affected, but we try to upgrade Drupal consistently. Drupal security is something you can rely upon.
New VRNHN website is live
The new Drupal 8 website of a Dutch security organisation (Veiligheidsregio Noord-Holland Noord) is live: www.vrnhn.nl.
Our client worked hard over the past few months to introduce new videos end imagery. This combined with our efforts to implement a new platform resulted in a brand new website with a clear design (by Kees-TM Internet)). Emphasis has been put on social media and quick performance through advanced caching mechanisms.
There was special attention for mobile applications and the introduction of forms to reduce the workload of VRNHN staff members. This new website is compliant with the new European privacy regulations and provides a stable on-line channel for the years to come.
Take over Triquanta Web Solutions
The Court in Amsterdam declared Triquanta Web Solutions B.V. bankrupt on January 16th. iDelft has partly taken over the company which always had an excellent reputation in the market. This acquisition is meant to reinforce the position of iDelft as leading developer of complex websites based on Drupal.
iDelft is helping with a migration project
Big companies often operate (many!) large websites. iDelft helped a major engineering firm in the Netherlands over the past months to migrate a range of websites to Drupal 8. The sites are multi-langual and context sensitivity plays an important role. In many cases, iDelft is responsible for the entire implementation project, but in this instance we acted as consultants and worked together with the building team of the customer. This advisory role was crucial for the success of the migration.
iDelft has won an international NATO prize
iDelft participated in the NITECT 2017 conference in Ottawa. The NATO Communication and Information (NCI) Agency awarded iDelft BV with the Defence Innovation Challenge prize. With 9 other international companies, iDelft demonstrated new technology at the 2017 NCI Agency Conference / AFCEA TechNet International (NITEC17), 'Sharpening NATO's Technological Edge: Adaptive Partnerships and the Innovative Power of Alliance Industry'. A total of 48 companies submitted proposals to NATO; 10 spearhead technologies had been formulated by NATO upfront.
iDelft created a software solution for procurement processes based on the Drupal platform. Combining this software with so-called Container technology (Docker) is offering maximum scalability and flexibility. With this solution, NATO can optimize their procurement processes on various platforms and geographic locations.
The other winning companies were from Norway, Germany, UK and the USA, focussing on Cyber Security, Secure Voice, Service Management Automation, Long Range Communication and Infrastructure.
NATO will spent more than 3 billion Euro's in the coming years on new projects and the NITEC 2017 conference paid attention to those upcoming projects that will need to incorporate new technologies.
Cadaster test- and advice project
iDelft completed a project for the Cadastre to migrate the www.pdok.nl portal to a new database platform. This involved a PostgreSQL database in combination with Docker containers.
iDelft partner of Drupal Nederland
iDelft is in 2016 silver partner of Drupal Nederland (a foundation to promote the effective use of Drupal in The Netherlands).
Quality Study Drupal website
iDelft completed a study on Drupal software implementation quality for a major Dutch public organisation. The results will be used to improve the follow-on phases.

The website is aiming at two different audiences: Potential clients seeking support and self-employed IT professionals. Clients can search for candidates whereas IT-professionals can search for actual available projects. The website has been made with help of Drupal 7.
