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.

The Jelastic platform we are on is amazing - it provides us with a simplified toolset backed up by truly awesome scalable technology - the perfect mix for us - and it is proving to be incredibly cost effective to boot.

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...

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...

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.

Paul Dean
Director - Bluewave Design

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.

Nigel Billam - Webjoy

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.

Dominic Goode
Director - Bludelta

You know when you are dealing with a well run company, and these people are as good as it gets. Well priced, helpful, highly skilled and really available 24/7/365.

We chose their fully managed service which turned out to be a wise decision. We have made extensive use of their tech support team who have helped us on many occasions where others had drawn a blank.

Julian Deghy
Director - Photographer London

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.
