[December 16th, 2018] BrightStores (Co-Store) Data Center Move - 10:00PM MTN
Posted by Akhil Shastry on 21 November 2018 01:54 PM


As your Company Store provider, it is our mission to make sure your stores run on the best platform in the Promotional Products Industry which is why we are excited to announce that we'll be moving our legacy system (Co-Store) to the Google Cloud Platform. We have decided to make this move to ensure that we are not only meeting today's end-user demands but are improving reliability, security, scalability, and up-time for future growth. Moving to Google Cloud Platform will bring the following benefits:

Security & Compliance
Google Cloud Platform features a multi-layered secure infrastructure which means your data and your client's data is protected 24/7/365.

On-Demand Scalability
We can leverage Google Cloud's on-demand scalability to meet the fast growing needs of eCommerce and all online ordering.

Reliable High Performance Infrastructure
Google data centers are the most reliable and secure data centers in the world.

We will begin this move on Sunday, December 16th at 10:00 p.m. MTN. Please expect up to four hours of downtime. There will be some changes that might affect how your stores operate:

Custom Domain Stores & New IP Address Change
Our system's IP Address is changing. If you or your client has a need to whitelist the IP, please reach out to our Support Team at

System Generated Emails
Along with moving data centers, we are also partnering with SendGrid to improve the deliverability of system generated emails such as order and shipping confirmations. You shouldn't notice any changes, but if you need to white-list the new email server, please let us know.

We are excited about this move to the Google Cloud Platform and the improvements it will bring to our systems. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Support Team at or call 1.800.466.5930 ext. 2.

Thank you and have a great day!
The BrightStores Team
