Load balancing is one of the most commonly used solutions for high traffic sites and resource intense applications. What makes load balancing so effective is that it distributes all incoming traffic among a pool of servers, using a dedicated load balancer in front of the servers. This allows several servers to handle the traffic and load which results in better performance and ability to handle more traffic. In the event that one server goes offline, it is immediately taken out of the cluster so none of your visitors are affected by the downtime.
There are many different ways to build a load balancing server cluster. So it’s important to evaluate each website or applications requirements individually. Some setups may require high availability with redundant A+B network feeds, power and redundant load balancers. Others may need databases, web servers and storage servers all separated. One size doesn’t fit all, so it’s important to analyze your sites or applications needs, and build accordingly. One of our Advanced Solutions engineers will work with you one-on-one to help determine exactly what you need.
Whether you have a busy online e-commerce website or a business running back office applications, chances are your web server or database are mission-critical and require peak performance. Fortunately, there is a way to leverage better reliability and performance by separating your Web Server and Database Server into two separate dedicated servers.
Separating the Web and Database servers is a good solution as the two primary services are separated allowing each to run without resource contention. Another benefit is the increased security from having the database separated from the web server and made only privately accessible by encrypted secure local communication.
This server architecture can be setup for Linux or Windows environments and a number of databases such as MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MSSQL, MySQL and many more.
Server and website uptime are important for every business. For those that generate income from their web presence, ensuring reliability is top priority. With downtime comes costs, and hardware failure is generally the most common factor. Fortunately, it can also be prevented. You can protect your business, revenue and reputation from downtime by making your server infrastructure fully redundant.
The most common and affordable solution is a High Availability (HA) server setup. It accomplishes zero-downtime by using a failover IP address with heartbeat monitoring along with a second physical server to replicate data to. It keeps this data in sync between the servers at all times. In the event of a hardware failure, website error or connection issue, traffic is immediately shifted to the second stand-by server and your website or application continues functioning with minimal interruption. An HA solution also makes it possible to perform zero-downtime maintenance and upgrades.

A public cloud offers on-demand scalability whenever you need it making it great for businesses with front-end applications or high traffic sites needing the flexibility to scale when needed. A Public Cloud can also be offered as a service to end users with reliable virtualized instances allowing your customers true font-end flexibility to easily scale when demand increases and pay-as-you-go pricing.
Private cloud architecture is built in-house and on-premise. Resources are shared internally among restricted users for control and security of sensitive data. Private clouds are best for covering any privacy and compliancy / regulatory needs and makes sense for a business that runs an application and data security is significantly important. This method is often better suited for a company that is substantial enough to financially operate its own private cloud as it comes with the highest cost.
A hybrid cloud includes a combination of private and public cloud. This cloud solution provides efficiency of a public cloud and security of a private cloud, but requires management of several platforms at once while ensuring seamless integration. A hybrid cloud is ideal if a company, for example, wants to enable a public SaaS app while prioritizing security. Therefore, the SaaS provider would create a firewalled private cloud within its public cloud.
