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.

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...
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...
Layershift Jelastic PaaS is the only service that would allow a novice like me the flexibility I need. I'm no web programmer but I easily managed to set everything up with no problem.
I was able to install the required PHP modules (in fact their tech support even did that for me!), I had control of core functions without having to go through command line setups of Apache servers. Tech support has been excellent and I found the online tutorials more than excellent...
The service Layershift offer is outstanding. I always receive quick and courteous replies and the solutions provided actually work. They can count on me as a guaranteed long-term customer. I've already started moving all the websites I host somewhere else to Layershift - I couldn't find any other hosting provider that could do things better.
They have taken server management to a higher level, I am very impressed!
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.
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
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!
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
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
I've used many different hosting companies, but none compare to Layershift. Great product, great price and as a managed service it takes all the hassle out of hosting.
The technical support guys have been amazing, I've never experienced service like this and I rely on these guys to make my business run smoothly. First class all round, and I look forward to many years of doing business with them.
