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

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.

Bill Kingston
Managing Director - Den Creative Ltd

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...

Garry Crick
Director - Kent Web Host, Luno Ltd

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...

Director - Universal Textiles UK Ltd

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 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. We are paying no more here than we ever did in traditional hosting, with the added benefit of having portability, scalability and flexibility at our fingertips. Layershift's Jelastic platform offers BlueBox a fantastic toolset to scale and control costs -...

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.

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
Strategy Director - Blueleaf

Apart from the usual teething problems, it's all gone really well and we would like to say a big thank you to you and the tech support guys who are brilliant.

The servers seem to be much faster and it's very re-assuring to know you're on hand to help.

Alison Fraser - Your Name Here Ltd

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

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.
