Redundant Cloud Servers Are Amazing!

If you have ever lost data due to a crashed server or a fried hard drive, then you know that it can feel like the world is coming to an end – all that work for nothing! Luckily, when data or files are saved in a “true” cloud server from GlowHost, the data should always be retrievable due to the data being replicated no less than four times on no less than four different drives. Redundant cloud servers not only mean that your data is stored in more than one location, it also means that your site and databases run on multiple dedicated servers at the same time which creates even more of a safety net.  If one server goes offline, the others pick up where it left off, resulting in 100% to five-nines uptime (99.999% – which is 5 minutes or less per year!)

GlowHost’s redundant cloud services offer a huge amount of protection for your website. If you go with Enterprise Cloud Hosting, you can be assured of some pretty nifty benefits.

Benefits of Cloud Hosting

Have you ever logged onto a website only to receive the “server down” error message? With GlowHost’s redundant cloud servers, this is virtually impossible. There are a huge number of safety nets in place, involving two different power grids as well as backup generators. What this means for you is that no matter what, your website will keep going strong.

Not only will your site keep going, but it will go fast. Unlike other so-called “cloud” hosting options which typically rely on just one machine, cloud hosting at GlowHost means that a bunch of different machines are working in tandem to power your site. With so many resources, you are guaranteed greater speed and better performance. This model also means that it’s really simple to add more space, allowing your website to grow and expand with ease. With traditional servers, if you wanted to add more space, you would have to power down the physical machine and add larger hard drives to it. With our cloud you can add space to your cloud server in real time, without so much as a reboot in most cases.

Choosing the Right Cloud Server Option

If you have a smaller business or website, GlowHost offers a Cloud Virtual Dedicated Server, which is one of the best web hosting options for those users who want to be able to grow their website with ease while keeping all data safely stored in multiple locations. This option allows for the fastest, most flexible hosting at a reasonable price point, perfect for those who are looking to expand in the future. Meanwhile, GlowHost’s management experts will take care of everything complicated behind the scenes.

For larger companies or websites that have their own IT staff to help manage things, Enterprise Cloud Hosting may be the best web hosting option, exactly what many have been looking for. Not only does it include all the benefits of standard cloud hosting, but it gives you the power to customize it in all aspects. GlowHost’s management team can be considered an extension of your in-house team and are available 24/7/365 in real time.  This option is for those who have already made it to the big leagues, who absolutely cannot have their site go down for any reason. For the peace of mind and ease of usability that come with it, it’s totally worth it.
