What is Cloud Hosting?
In a dedicated server environment, if a server experiences a hardware failure, there are usually long periods of downtime which can affect your business and your integrity. By investing in a state of the art and complex cloud infrastructure for our hosted services, we ensure our servers are constantly available and scalable to match the needs of our customers.
There are numerous benefits to you for choosing our hosted services in a cloud environment, such as value for money, convenience, automated fail-over, high availability and scalable resources.
How does it work?
Our physical servers share their resources and are configured to work together to process all of the traffic. The services we offer run on virtual servers within this environment to allow them to move between the physical servers to automatically balance the workload, improving performance and avoiding downtime. Whatever hosting solution you require, you benefit from all our services being part of the cloud.
Why is it better?
As you are using a dedicated division of the server's memory, processing power and disk space, your costs are tied to how much you use. You are not paying for server resources that you don't use, as could be the case on an underutilised dedicated server. Another benefit of hosting on the cloud is the scalability, meaning the physical resources can be expanded and your packages can be upgraded to suit your needs.
If there is a hardware failure within the datacentre, your hosting space moves itself to another area in the cloud instantly, without you even noticing. This guarantees the services remain online whilst our technicians replace any failed hardware. On top of the cloud infrastructure, we have spent time eradicating any single point of failure, which means we can offer a guaranteed uptime of 99.99%.
