Covid-19 notice: To ensure the health and wellbeing of our team, Layershift are currently operating with 100% home based staff. Remote working was already part of our culture prior the pandemic, so there is no change or disruption to our services. We will continue to support you and your business 24/7, as usual.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thanks for your message. We'll be in touch shortly.

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...Alistair C Spark
Layershift allow us to concentrate on our core business and act (almost) like a 24×7 in-house IT department, but at a fraction of the cost – and we don’t have to make them coffee!
All our queries, however ‘dumb’, are answered promptly and in language that even ordinary people could understand by the friendly cloud hosting sales team.
Whenever there are technical issues beyond us, Layershift expert engineers are quick to respond to our support...
Layershift was recommended to us a few years ago when we were looking for fast, reliable servers and infrastructure and top rate support, and they have more than lived up to that reputation. Their engineers are knowledgeable, efficient and very helpful, and often go way beyond the call of duty to help us.
It's hugely reassuring to be able to leave our server management in such expert hands, and Layershift's consistently exceptional service means we can rely on...
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...
I've been running my web design business now for over 10 years, and it's only this year I've moved away from Fasthosts. The difference is incredible.
When I came to set up an SSL cert for one of my sites - something I've always found painful and fiddly in the past - Cristina made everything so easy.
I was guided to the most appropriate solution for my needs, with all costs clearly explained and approved before orders were raised, and then everything was...
I have been a Layershift customer for over 6 years. During this time they've never let me down and I have come to learn that their fine staff are pretty darn smart. It's refreshing to communicate with a tech support staff that really understands computers.
Computers will always have issues, but in those rare instances their response has been quick and more importantly complete.
I'm so happy that I've decided to move to Layershift! I've been with 1and1 for 10 years but their service doesn't even come to compare with the amazing support you guys offer. I was impressed with how smoothly the migration went and how painless the whole process was. You guys are setting a great example for all the other hosting providers out there!Greg Gomes
We inherited our relationship with Layershift after buying out another company and have been amazed at the level of service we have received. The support provided during what was a very hectic period for us was nothing short of exceptional. Our queries have always been picked up promptly and dealt with diligently. Working with Layershift has been breath of fresh air compared to the many other providers we have worked with previously.Tim Jarrett
Ever since I started working with Layershift, the support provided has been second-to-none! The other hosting providers I've worked with have been a nightmare! There's no way I would ever want to move away from Layershift, your excellent service is all one could wish for.Rees Kenyon
Ioan Nistor is always a helpful chap! As are the team, everyone I have ever interacted with has always been of top level in professionalism and assistance.
