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 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'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...
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!
In a world where web hosting companies seem to be solely focussed on attracting as many clients as possible and offering pretty basic (at best) customer service, Layershift excel in being able to provide truly personable and fast customer service.
When your business is your web site, like it is for us, knowing there are true experts on hand 24/7 to help when things go wrong is priceless. I have recommended Layershift so many times and will continue to do so.
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 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
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
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.
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 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.
