High availability in hosting terms refers to an IT infrastructure that remains available at all times, even in the event of service disruption. As part of a business continuity plan, organisations should always consider measures that protect business-critical IT solutions, such as websites, databases and applications.
UKFast Enterprise is highly experienced in providing always-on hosting, incorporating a range of high availability solutions.
As well as providing high spec HP dedicated servers, we will recommend a range of tailored services to provide the redundancy you need.
Clustering & replication
Failover server clustering and database replication ensures that applications and services are always available, during planned and unplanned server downtime. This adds redundancy into your IT infrastructure, helping to eliminate any single points of failure. By protecting your solution against downtime, you protect your investment and avoid loss of service, increasing ROI.
Network load balancing allows you to distribute server requests to multiple systems in order to maximise resource utilisation and ensure system availability. Load balancing ensures that servers and hardware do not become overwhelmed.
Utilising caching technology, web acceleration can also reduce the load on website servers, increasing capacity and performance, which in turn has a positive effect on uptime.
