What does High Availability (HA) Hosting mean & do I need it?
HA is a software service that minimizes any service outage. It provides uniform, cost-effective failover protection against hardware and/or Operating System (OS) failures. It monitors the servers to detect a failure on the underlying physical hosts or an OS failure inside the clients' instances. If an outage is detected, the HA functionality restarts the cloud instance on another physical host, part of the Host Color's compute cluster. The operations resume automatically and services that work on the cloud instance return online. There is no need to reboot the server manually. If you want to make sure that your websites, applications and services would return online very fast in case of any outage, you should consider using any of Host Color's Cloud services.
Does Automated Fault Tolerance really offer 100% uptime?
Automated Fault Tolerance (AFT) is a service which eliminates the risk of a service outage. Host Color offers Automated Fault Tolerance as a paid add-on service to all Cloud services. Unlike the HA, which reduces any service outage, the AFT function eliminates it and ensures continuous availability for any websites, applications and other all workloads in an event of server failure. AFT creates a live shadow server (Failover Virtual Machine), which is synchronized and always up-to-date with the primary one. In an event of a hardware failure or an OS outage, the AFT automatically starts the failover VM, ensuring zero downtime.
Do I need a Cloud Hosting?
Most Marketeers and Sales Agents say "Yes, you do!". We work differently! We will talk to you about your project and will take our time to understand what you want to achieve? HC team will outline any possible IT infrastructure and service scenarios for your business and then will compare the Cloud computing to the traditional web hosting models. Cloud services, especially the Hybrid Clouds are very efficient and cost-effective for businesses, as they help them create flexible IT frameworks and to organize operations more efficiently. On the other hand, traditional computing is simple to understand and in many ways more affordable. Why don't you Ask your questions?
What is the difference between Cloud & traditional Web Hosting?
It is simple. Just ignore the buzzword "Cloud" and focus on its technical specification. Term "Cloud" refers to computer clusters, a networking model of computer systems. In those systems the servers that deal with processing operations (Processing Nodes) are physically separate from the storage appliances (Storage Area Networks). Cloud computing systems are hardware-redundant. In case of a failure of any physical component, a they continue to operate. Therefore, they ensure operational continuity and guarantee a high service uptime. In order for any web hosting service or a computer instance to be called "Cloud", it must be delivered from a clustered server infrastructure. On a user level, the computer instance itself would feature some form of HA or failover scenario, which would increase its operational continuity. If it doesn't offer anything like that, it should not be called "Cloud".
