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.

Since discovering Layershift through hosting forum recommendations I've been massively impressed with their always prompt, professional & pro-active customer support. I've hosted with Layershift since 2007. Prior to this date I'd used various hosts and ended up migrating my client sites each time at considerable time and expense mainly due to platform instability & poor customer support. During the honeymoon period with previous hosts things were typically fine and then...Alistair C Spark
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
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...
We have had several bad experiences with hosting companies over the years and have found time after time that the customer service was absolutely dreadful - not the case with Layershift!
Their team are super friendly and reply in record time to our questions or queries. All the support staff have displayed incredible attitudes, efficiency and dedication to providing excellent customer service.
Layershift repeatedly go above and beyond the duties...
I'm so happy that I've decided to move to Layershift! I've been with 1and1 for 10 years but their service doesn't even come to compare with the amazing support you guys offer. I was impressed with how smoothly the migration went and how painless the whole process was. You guys are setting a great example for all the other hosting providers out there!Greg Gomes
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.
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.
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!
Ever since I started working with Layershift, the support provided has been second-to-none! The other hosting providers I've worked with have been a nightmare! There's no way I would ever want to move away from Layershift, your excellent service is all one could wish for.Rees Kenyon
