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.

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.
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 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...
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.
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...
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!
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.
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.
I hold this company in high regard due to the exceptional service I always receive!
I chose Layershift because I offer 24x7 service and need total support 24x7, in the knowledge that I am only as good as the support that I receive. I just wanted to thank you for the support that I have received to date, and I want to acknowledge the professional support and assistance that I have received recently.
A brilliant experience and confirmation of why I have chosen your good selves to host my services.
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.
