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

Following a recommendation, we starting using Layershift's Cloud VPS hosting 4 years ago and have always found the service excellent. The platform is very reliable and has never let us down. This is crucial for our e-commerce website which has a high level of traffic and transactions. The level of support is exceptional. The team have very good technical knowledge and the speed of response is faster than we experience from other technology providers. I would not...

Glen Smith
Marketing Manager - WISE Worksafe Ltd

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...

Gary Baker
Founder & CEO - Swagger & Swoon

We've used Layershift for a few years now and they have proven to be a very fast and reliable hosting company.

We switched from an expensive dedicated server from another company to the Layershift Cloud VPS and it's fitted our needs perfectly with great reliability and excellent customer support.

I love the fact that you can directly email the support team for a quick response rather than having to set up tickets.

Andrew Ward

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.

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...

Martin Fleet
Systems Engineer - Subsea Controls

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'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.

Lenny Warren
Owner - Warren Media

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
Director - Airship Design & New Media

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!

Yee Liu Williams
Founder - in-syte

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.
