Your trusted partner for web-based software

Let us take responsibility for your web-based technology, and ensure its security, performance and smooth operation.

We've been working with the internet and web platforms since 2005 and have accumulated a career's worth of experience in designing, developing and maintaining software applications for the web and mobile.

We operate as an outsourced technology partner for businesses - designing, building, hosting and maintaining enterprise and line-of-business web applications with trusted web technologies such as PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, NodeJS and React.

We're a small agency with a hands-on approach and no middlemen - we'll work directly with you to help you achieve your goals.

Web application security and maintenance

At Si Novi we take on the responsibility for securing and maintaining your web-based systems.

We audit and secure PHP and JavaScript web applications using industry-standard security technologies and protocols, and ensure applications remain up to date and hardened against common threats. We utilise cloud security systems to protect your websites and applications, and provide you with peace of mind.

We follow best-practice web security principles and consider data privacy under the Data Protection Act and the GDPR.

High-availability cloud hosting & infrastructure

As certified AWS Cloud Practitioners, we use Amazon Web Services and other cloud systems to build the right infrastructure for your project.

In the current age of cloud computing, the availablity and performance of your web-based systems should no longer be a concern. We'll use our experience and expertise to ensure that your systems are completely reliable.

We have experience ranging from running high-profile and high-performance autoscaling web application workloads in AWS, to providing smaller hosting setups for SME's on traditional VPS Linux or AWS Linux and serverless environments.

You can trust us to provision and manage your website or application hosting, safe in the knowledge that it's being cared for by a team invested in the success of your software and your business.

We can migrate existing applications and websites to cloud infrastructure, bringing benefits in speed and security. We're able to refactor and optimise your applications to make best use of the currently-available technologies such as serverless computing and scalable cloud storage.

“I was very impressed with Si Novi’s technical understanding of the subject matter and greatly value your flexibility and positive attitude throughout the process”
