High Availability Hosting Infrastructure

If you have suffered server downtime due to a server failure or have had your site become unavailable for an extended period of time, it’s time to switch to a High Availability Hosting Infrastructure. All of our virtual dedicated servers and private cloud hosting packages utilize VMware’s High Availabily (HA) functionality which automatically relocates virtual machines from a failed host, registers them on the new host, and powers them on.

Minimize Server Downtime By Using High Availability VMware Hosting

The diagram below illustrates the movement of VMware based Virtual Machines from a failed ESXi host to other ESX hosts in the same High Availability cluster.

How High Availability Hosting Works

  • * VMware HA constantly monitors the ESXi hosts and virtual machines to detect operating system and host failures.
  • * Your virtual machine will be restarted on another ESXi host in the HA enabled cluster without manual intervention if an ESXi host failure occures.
  • * VMware HA can also protect your applications from an operating system failure by automatically restarting virtual machines in the event of an operating system failure.

* Our VMware based high availability hosting infrastructure is a fully redundant hosting environment with no single point of failure.

High Availablity Storage

We offer redundant FibreChannel SAN infrastructure for enterprise level storage not found in most other hosting infrastructures.

For customers demanding high availability high performance NFS storage we also offer 10G internet connectivity. Whether utilizing our FibreChannel or 10G Ethernet, all storage utilizes Enterprise Grade FibreChannel disks and notinferior SATA or SAS drives.

Virtual Machines simply does not deploy any SATA or SAS drives in our SAN storage offerings.
