Using a redundant SAN (storage area network) as central storage architecture, if the hardware node hosting your cloud server was to go offline, it is possible to immediately bring the cloud server offline on a separate hardware node. This process takes just a matter of seconds. This also allows for seamless upgrades between plans, requiring just a quick reboot of the cloud server.
Our full server management encompasses encompasses everything from operating system updates to server optimization. We will handle all server-side management and monitoring tasks, allowing you to focus on your website and applications.
LiteSpeed Web Server
Instead of Apache, we utilize LiteSpeed Web Server as a drop-in replacement. It is fully compatible with .htaccess and mod_rewrite, as well as common PHP and MySQL based scripts (such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc). LiteSpeed allows us to provide enhanced performance and resilience to high traffic within our hosting environment.
Percona MySQL Server
Instead of the standard MySQL server commonly used by web hosts, we are one of the few providers to implement the Percona release of MySQL which includes significant performance enhancements, specifically for InnoDB. This greatly benefits PHP and MySQL based applications, especially those which heavily rely on InnoDB such as Magento.
Accelerated PHP 5
We configure PHP 5 with Zend Optimizer, ionCube loaders, as well as eAccelerator. This means that not only do you experience the best performance, but also the greatest compatibility for encoded scripts with support for the two most used encoders in the industry.
Our application intensive hosting service is available in three global locations: New York, Amsterdam, and Singapore.
Daily Off-Site Backups
All hosting plans feature nightly off-site backups which are available in the case of server failure. We do also strongly recommend our customers to maintain their own backups to allow for maximum data security. Backups can be generated and downloaded through our control panel at any time.
All servers feature a web application request filtering system based on mod_security which is custom-crafted to block common exploits of application vulnerabilities. To ensure maximum security, we recommend our customers to also keep applications up to date with new releases.
