What are the benefits of UKHost4u Cloud Solutions?
Clients are free to have as much (or as little traffic) as they want. Their hosting environment can scale up to handle thousands of concurrent visitors, or scale down during quiet period. This means less worry for websites with irregular traffic, and decreased costs since they don’t have to pay high fixed server costs to account for peak traffic.
Access high-availability thanks to automatic vertical and horizontal scaling based on server load. Set up alerts and rules easily directly from your dashboard to manage your sites and applications automatically.
People visiting websites hosted on servers within the UKHost4u Cloud Solutions platform will experienced solid performance. Assuming the application code is not terribly bloated, the website will always load fast. This speed is solid no matter how many visitors are on the server at the same time. There are virtually no slowdowns, ever.
Websites hosted on Jelastic-managed servers are theoretically always up, and always available. No slowdowns, no service interruptions, no error 500’s…no interruptions at all! By default, Jelastic hosting environments are all high-availability (HA) with load balancers and multiple servers in cluster configuration to handle heavy load.
As you can see on the image below, with UKHost4u’s pay-per-use pricing, you only pay for your real consumption, not for a limit you rarely reach.
With our solution you only pay based on the Cloudlets you use hourly.
Assuming the savings in cost is passed down from their web host, clients can save money by paying only for the resources used. It’s also a matter of cost savings since their website is always up and available during peak traffic times.
What are UKHost4u Cloud Solutions Features?
Using our application platform your setup is fully isolated, meaning you’re not affected by other users which can be the case with other hosting services. Each service you deploy, be it Apache or MySQL, is individual and customised exclusively for your needs.
Built to Scale
We have designed the platform to have a high level of redundancy with processing and data storage separated onto different hardware. Furthermore there is the ability to migrate environments to new hardware with zero downtime.
Automatically deploy a range of services within a clustered environment. For example, WordPress can be deployed with multiple web servers, behind one or more load balancers, connected to a database cluster with shared storage, to provide the ultimate scalability and redundancy.
If you don’t want to build your application manually, we have a large marketplace of pre-designed templates which can be deployed in minutes. These include the most popular content management systems, e-commerce packages and project management platforms.
Safeguarding data is very important to all businesses. We backup your entire environment every 24 hours for free!
Only pay for what you use
Our platform has been designed so that you only pay for your actual usage on an hour by hour basis. This means you can start small without worring about expensive bills, knowing that you can scale up in the future.
