The all-new storage platform has been designed using the latest tiered storage architecture. This enables the system to promote more frequently used data to faster storage technology. This is all managed by the system and needs no user interaction; the system monitors the usage levels of the sites and the data and manages the seamless prioritisation. Also, depending on your package choice a larger proportion of our new Solid State Disks can be utilised.
Cluster also uses heterogeneous Storage which allows you to easily move OS from Linux to Windows.
Dedicated SSL certificates
Protecting your site, the newly added dedicated SSL certificates allow you to show customers you care about their security with up to 256-bit encryption, $500K USD warranty and the GeoTrust dynamic True Site Seal trustmark.
Your package also comes with advanced DDoS mitigation systems, which give your sites increased protection from attacks and assists our Cluster Support Team with isolating websites under attack and minimising the effects on other websites on the same server.
No more noisy neighbour syndrome
Your site is hosted across multiple clustered web servers, which means if sites near yours get a significant increase in traffic, your site's performance will not be affected. The system will automatically re-route your traffic to a lower contended server.
Intelligent load balancing
Fasthosts’ new hosting platform is designed to spread your websites and associated data across many servers. This means your sites will stay up and running at peak performance even under heavy load or during platform maintenance. Sophisticated usage algorithms monitor your sites and where bottlenecks or other forms of data contention are forecast, your traffic is routed through the highest performing routes to keep your customers online and your sites earning you money.
New redundancy and resilience in Fasthosts’ architecture reduces downtime to a minimum, both during upgrades or other maintenance periods. This state of the art design also mitigates server and storage failures by always having multiple data routes and processing power for your websites to utilise.
