February 24th, 2022, will certainly be a date that will be in the world’s story. It’s the day when a European country has completely forgotten the horror of World War II to lift against another European country. Russia has started an invasion of Ukraine through the air, sea, and terrestrial ways. The life of Ukrainian civilians has quickly become complicated in light of this invasion. The services may soon be compromised, but a Ukrainian developer states that its SetApp will keep working despite the Russian invasion.
The Ukrainian developer MacPaw is assuring its customers that the company’s products will be undisrupted despite the Ukraine invasion by Russia. The company has an emergency plan to ensure the safety of team members and ensure the continued operation of SetApp and other services. MacPaw states that the company has “been preparing for these circumstances” from an operational standpoint for some time. The infrastructure for the company and all customer data is hosted on Amazon Web Stores. Moreover, the company states that all of the servers that it pays for are outside of Ukraine. In the same way, the company’s payment service Paddle operates from the United Kingdom. Therefore, Russia’s attack on Ukraine may not bring a direct impact on the services.

MacPaw products will continue to work flawlessly and receive timely updates. Our support team will keep responding to all your messages. We want to say thank you for all the incredible messages of support you’ve sent our way. Our team at MacPaw is staying calm, focused, and optimistic for a peaceful future of independent Ukraine.”
