When one
server just
isn't enough

The answer to your problems

Whether you just need to tier your application to one role per server for security compliance, or scale up and out to handle high loads.

A few ways we help with large scale projects...

Global Load Balancing

Serving a worldwide audience can often result in latency and routing compromises - everybody gets a mediocre experience!

Deploy your entire application in multiple geographic locations and intelligently route visitors to their nearest instance. Like a CDN but for whole applications instead of just static content.

Vertical Scaling

Even when scaling horizontally, it's useful to be able to adjust the amount of resources on any individual server as well.

Our Jelastic PaaS does this for you automatically, and you can do this on demand for other Layershift services too.

Horizontal Scaling

Handling high volume workloads often becomes problematic for a single server, and vertical scaling (adding more resources) reaches technical and financial limitations.

All of Layershift's services can be scaled horizontally (meaning more servers distributing the workload in parallel, so each shoulders a lighter load), including appropriate load balancing, distribution, and monitoring solutions to deliver the most effective results.

Replication

If you scale horizontally, you need to keep the data synchronised between each duplicate server. Replication takes care of that for you.

There are various different types of replication available depending on the technologies involved and the specific scenario.

Customer testimonials

Winner: Best in Western Europe - Nicereply Customer Happiness Awards

We moved from Fasthosts as we needed good Customer Service and they weren't delivering. As a web design company we don't want to worry about any hosting problems. We need a managed server from a UK provider with a high level of expertise including fast, reliable support from people who know what they are talking about - Layershift provide the complete solution. Over a year hosting with them without any downtime at all.

Highly recommended.

Bill Kingston
Managing Director - Den Creative Ltd

We design, develop and manage websites for a number of high profile clients, whose web presences are crucial to their business. With Layershift we can be confident that we have the resources to host all types of websites for them. We originally started on a shared server and upgraded to our own dedicated server to give us more capacity. Layershift's managed hosting option lets us concentrate on the things we are good at without having to worry about our servers,...

Layershift's service is second to none in my opinion, and I'm sure their other customers must feel the same way. Their prices are very good but it's the suberb service level rather than pricing that's kept us with Layershift for such a long time.

Service quality was a big part of our purchasing decision when looking for a new host, and I actually wasted a lot of time on forums and review sites trying to find problems with these guys - obviously there were...

Director - Universal Textiles UK Ltd

Since discovering Layershift through hosting forum recommendations I've been massively impressed with their always prompt, professional & pro-active customer support. I've hosted with Layershift since 2007. Prior to this date I'd used various hosts and ended up migrating my client sites each time at considerable time and expense mainly due to platform instability & poor customer support. During the honeymoon period with previous hosts things were typically fine and then...

I was looking for a managed VPS to host my personal websites. Choosing Layershift, I found much more. A partner who really seeks the well-being of its customers.

Whenever I need to contact support, I always get extremely fast and efficient answers. They go beyond merely managing my VPS, by diagnosing possible code problems. Layershift monitoring is always vigilant and has even been able to detect security flaws in one of my systems.

Today I have 5 VPS at...

Quite brilliant - thank you so much for simplifying a process that looked complex and in fact was very easy. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction - not sure what I would do without your support.

Your support and service is the tops!

Layershift is our most trusted supplier for one reason - reliability and going the extra mile. They are always there and respond in a considered and pro active way to every request whether its at 3am or 3pm, Sunday or Tuesday. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Rob Smith
Strategy Director - Blueleaf

I have used Layershift for our business hosting since 2008. I find their service reliable, their prices competitive and their support excellent.

I use a number of hosting services for various projects but have found none compare to the quality I receive from Layershift which is the reason I continue to use them day after day for my core business operations.

Dominic Goode
Director - Bludelta

Victor and the rest of the team always provide the best service whenever I put in a support request. Fast, efficient, and done properly.

Layershift offer by far the best support of any hosts I have used, which is why I always recommend them to clients. Thanks guys.
