Scale Up and Down Whenever You Need To
Everybody wants to be popular. But what could be worse than your site going offline for just that reason?
When your site gets tweeted, dugg, slashdotted - the influx of thousands of visitors can bring a normal server to a grinding halt. It could be down for hours whilst new hardware is prepared to meet the demand.
On the cloud, you just scale up when you need to. When the demand subsides, you scale back down again. Pay only for what you need - when you need it.
Maximimum Uptime with High Availability
With a traditional server, if the hard drive dies or the motherboard gets fried, you could be offline for hours whilst it is repaired. And there's no guarantee your data will still be intact once it comes back online.
With the Cloud's self healing architecture, you can kiss extended downtime, data loss and hair pulling goodbye. All cloud servers are mirrored across a grid of servers. When a server fails the data remains available, and any affected Cloud Servers are automatically re-deployed elsewhere on the cloud within minutes.
Easy to Adopt
A cloud server works just like a traditional Linux server. Anything you can deploy on a linux dedicated server can be deployed on our redundant cloud and is instantly scalable to meet demand. You don't have to learn any new coding methods for your applications, and the server can be managed in the same way as a traditional server.
If you don't have experience managing servers, we provide server management plans for a small additional monthly fee to give you complete peace of mind. We can even help you migrate from your existing hosting platform for you!
Built to Your Specification
Why pay for what you don't need? We give you the flexibility to scale up your processor, memory and disk space independently of each other, and whenever you need to. This enables you to keep your initial hosting costs low as you pay for what you use now, not what you might need to use in the future.
High Availability Deployments
If your requirements outgrow a single cloud server, look no further. We can deploy fully scalable environments with multiple cloud servers in advanced configurations to deal with extreme load or redundancy requirements. We can deploy virtual firewalls, load balancers, replicated database servers within the cloud - and then test the infrastructure with built in load testing and monitoring functionality to simulate extreme demand. Sexy!
Kiss goodbye to traditional backup solutions and data restores. On the cloud we simply take a snapshot of your entire server - or even of a multi-server infrastructure. Should you need to roll back to that snapshot, we just shut down your live environment and start up the snapshot and you're up and running in minutes.
It's like having fully configured standby servers ready to deploy on-demand - just without the expense!
Better for the Environment
A cloud server has a far smaller environmental impact than a traditional server. Analysts IDC estimate that the cost of powering and cooling servers in the US alone is $14bn per year. The energy this consumes is huge - and much of it is wasted on powering underutilized servers. The cloud brings much greater levels of efficiency as multiple virtual servers can be provisioned on the same physical hardware. This means a greatly reduced use of datacenter space, and consequently a significant reduction in the demand for power and cooling. Cloud hosting is integral for a greener future for the Internet.
