New York, NY (PRWEB) March 4, 2010 — Bigstock, one of the world’s leading online royalty-free stock image agencies, announced today the launch of its eagerly anticipated website overhaul, www.bigstock.com, built to provide the best online experience for buyers looking to purchase high quality stock images via affordable credit-based payment options.

In addition to its sleek new interface, the site boasts a full spectrum of functions to improve user experience, including advanced search capabilities, more intuitive navigation, larger image previews and thumbnails, and improved tools for contributors. Bigstock also launched a new blog dedicated to covering company news, as well as updates from buyers, contributors and guest bloggers.

We kept the customer in mind at every step of this redesign,” said Jon Oringer, CEO of Bigstock. “These upgrades to Bigstock, along with our proven payment and licensing models, will help image buyers get the right image fast and ensure the continued success of our contributors.

An important feature of the site is its vastly improved search engine, which has been enhanced to provide the perfect balance of quality, relevance, popularity and freshness in search results. The engine’s specialized search algorithm will enable buyers to quickly and simply find the perfect stock photo, vector or illustration for their needs.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
