vWorker - Web Site Design, Features, Interfaces and Ease of Use
(Page 4 of 4)
This is another cause for concern: vWorker.com is a pretty slow site. This seems to vary during the day and even from day to day, but on the whole, vWorker is one of the slowest of the big sites in terms of response time. It gets especially bad when using advanced features such as keyword searches in the project database.
Again, here, there are some good points and bad points.
The major problem that I’ve encountered in the past is sometimes lengthy periods where the site would simply go down without explanation. For a while, it seemed almost a daily occurrence that the site would become inaccessible for about an hour a day (or even longer), usually very early in the morning eastern US time. This seems much less of an issue now, but I also don’t use the site as much as I once did. It’s possible that vWorker identified the problem and fixed it, or perhaps just beefed up their hardware if a lack of processing power was causing the problem.
On the bright side, vWorker is very attentive about responding to bugs that have been identified by its users. It also conscientiously documents when changes are made, even small bugfixes, which is not something you see very often. The company also seems to roll out new features and upgrades without significant planned downtime.
I have not heard of any past security breaches on the site. vWorker actually has a page where it discusses its various security measures, which is a nice touch and shows that they take the matter seriously.
