What type of High Availability Solutions do we offer?

We offer what we call True HA Solutions.  What this means is that we offer HA Solutions which can be a mixture of cloud and non cloud solutions.  For cloud solutions, we can help your website migrate to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Platform such as EC2 and Google Cloud Computing.  These cloud services are HA Solutions themselves, but downtime still happens from time to time.  Our True HA solutions can load balance between these cloud services and off the cloud servers with a live backup which your website can failover to in the unlikely event these large cloud providers experience any down time.
Our minimum HA setup will consist of the following:
  • Minimum of 2 Load Balancing Servers.
  • Minimum of 2 Web Servers.
  • Mimimum of 3 MySQL Server.  You have the option of MySQL replication or MariaDb Galera Cluster depending on the requirement of your website.
  • Website monitoring services from servers at multiple locations.  We do not just monitor uptime of the server, but the content of the website as well.  Our HA Solutions can detect and switch to the backup server if we detect error for your website.
  • CloudFlare integration which will provide basic DDoS protection for your website and allow us to do quick disaster recovery.  If your website ever become popular, chances are you are going to experience some sort of DDoS attack sooner or later.  Don't wait until your website becomes the victim of a DDoS before you consider DDoS protection.
  • Interface (Control Panel) to monitor the HA status and manually test the HA setup.
