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.

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...

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...

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.

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 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

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.

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.
