Hosting Architecture.

No two web projects are ever quite alike, and so it follows that neither are the hosting requirements. But no matter what the size or scope of the project, security and reliability are paramount.

We are both an official Rackspace and Acquia partner. This allows us access to a huge range of hosting products and services from both organisations, and enables us to leverage these to suit our clients’ individual requirements.

In partnership with our two hosting providers, we work with you to specify the requirements surrounding your project. We look at aspects including the physical imprint of the website on the server, the expected traffic and your future scalability requirements. This ensures that we can create a tailored solution that suits no only your requirement for launch, but also works for your project in the long term.

We currently host a huge variety of websites and applications on a wide variety of platforms for our clients. From dedicated boxes, to cloud hosting and VPS solutions using content delivery networks (CDN) for optimal global performance.

We’re also well versed in Cloud hosting technology and have specced and produced many projects in the Cloud. Either the entire project sitting within the Cloud, or the database and website files on a dedicated server and associated uploaded files hosted on Amazon’s S3 Cloud solution.
