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.

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...
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!
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...
I would just like to express my gratitude and say a big thank you for all your efforts on the transfer of our domains from UKFast. The transfer was very smooth and all issues were resolved during the process. The users have reported no errors and no loss of service so it is a success.Bruce Tomalin
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...
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
