At sWorks Social all following measure has been taken care in depth to give the best user experience.


1. Performance


Performance is the speed at which content is delivered to users, and how responsive the system is.


1.1. Processing time


Interactions with the server which require processing, such as login and requesting thumbnails of images, videos should take less than three seconds.


1.2. Response time


Over reasonably common internet connection speeds, the server should respond to client requests in less than one second.


1.3. Querying time


Querying the database should take less that one second.


2. Capacity and scalability


The capacity is the amount of resources made available to the system, and scalability is the ability of the system to make use of these resources.


2.1. Storage


The system must store data effectively and must anticipate the time remaining until all available storage is filled up.


2.2. Growth requirement


As the system gets used more often, by more people, the storage available will need to increase.


2.3. Throughput


The system should be capable of 1000 queries per minute, with the provision to increase capability with larger demands.


2.4 Extensibility


The system should be designed in such a way to accommodate future development across different platforms and different add-ons.


3. Availability


Availability is the proportion of time that the system is online.


3.1. Hours of operation


The system should be always available during the hours it is most popular. Any maintenance where the system needs to be taken offline should be done outside these times.


3.2. Locations of operation


The geographic location of the server should not impede the availability of the system. This means a location with a good quality connection and with minimal network restriction should be chosen.


4. Maintainability


Maintainability describes how well the system can be kept functional and how well it can be changed.


4.1. Architectural standards


Accepted standards and design patterns should be used in the construction of the base architecture


4.2. Coding standards


The code should be built modularly; such that independent parts accomplish independent tasks. Common and well-known coding styles should be utilized.


5. Recovery


Recovery is the ability for a system to prepare and respond to a disaster.


5.1. Backups


The system should be responsible for taking backups of data, such that it may be restored to a working state.


5.2. Backup frequency


The system should backup data very frequently (e.g. every hour) to avoid any data loss.


5.3. Backup time


The system should backup in a short period of time (e.g. one minute) with minimal disruption.


5.4. Recovery time


In event of a disaster, the latest backup should be immediately restored, such that the system is offline for less than one hour

Users must be able to choose how who can see their profiles and posts.


6.5. Encryption


The system should make use of encryption to ensure that data is stored securely. For example, passwords should be stored as SHA1 hashes. Connections should be encrypted to prevent unauthorized listening of communication.


7. Mobility


Mobility describes the suitability of the system for different platforms.


7.1. Mobile devices


The system should be operational on a wide spectrum of operating conditions, such as different screen sizes, performance, and internet connection speed.


7.2. Input devices


The system should make effective use of input devices on the mobile device. For example, the camera should be used for photo and barcode scanning.
