Fasthosts sets new standards with virtualised hosting packages
09 November 2015
Fasthosts Internet Ltd, a leading Web and Cloud hosting provider, today introduced brand new, cutting edge web hosting packages based on virtualisation technology. Designed to create the best experience a developer can have with a hosting package. Fasthosts’ Cluster platform shares the load of each website among multiple servers, minimising website resource contention and maintaining high levels of uptime. With in-built redundancy, users now benefit from maximum levels of performance and complete peace of mind.
Fasthosts’ new hosting range is now more flexible than ever, utilising a hybrid operating system design so multiple sites can be hosted flexibly in either Windows or Linux and all within one package. Should a change be required such a rebuild or new code being used, the operating system can be changed to accommodate this. Automatic DNS re-routing minimises the possibility of downtime while the transition takes place.
Fasthosts’ has combined super-fast SSD storage and traditional storage in order to create a highly intelligent storage solution. Files that are most frequently accessed such as data and web pages are stored in super-fast SSD storage while those accessed less frequently are stored traditionally, keeping performance high and costs for the user low. Should usage change, the intelligent storage re-prioritises and will store files in the most suitable location, optimising performance without any disruption.
Simon Yeoman, General Manager, Fasthosts Internet Ltd., comments “Our latest hosting platform offers all the advantages of Cloud-based performance, security and flexibility. Engineered using three-way mirrored technology, the multiple instances of redundancy ensure complete peace of mind for online businesses.”
Fasthosts’ Cluster platform combines hardware, software and architecture that has been carefully designed to provide the highest levels of performance and reliability. The entry level package starts from just £2.50/month + VAT (for the first three months, rising to £5.00/month + VAT). Each package includes all the essential elements needed to build and maintain successful online projects including popular applications such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla which can all be installed with just one click.
