Searching for high availability solution

Kamilek is searching for a high availability dedicated server solution and starts his thread with a comprehensive spec of the servers he'd like to use. He's looking for a reliable well-known company, and for the servers (minimum of 2) to be located in different datacenters. Having HA servers spread across different locations can cause issues due to latency, as mentioned early on in the thread, but Kamilek is open to a round-robin type of solution and would use incremental copying between machines to keep transfer times down. He's also curious about possible cloud solutions. Have you created a HA cluster and can you offer some advice on how this can be best achieved?

Good VPS hosting with 24/7 support

New to WHT, Rukkolka is looking for a good VPS hosting with 24/7 support, to be used to host two small and straightforward websites. These sites are currently hosted on shared hosting but his client is dissatisfied with the limitations of the package. Each upgrade or dealing with issues incurs significant costs and the provider retains almost total control. There has also been a recent security breach and the aim is to avoid those in the future. So Rukkolka is looking for greater user autonomy compared to conventional hosting, minimal vulnerability to potential attacks and security flaws and the capacity to implement various environment changes without excessive charges (or with nominal fees), all along with reliable 24/7 customer support. He's already received some recommendations prior to starting his thread on WHT, but he's looking to our community to advise and guide him. Is a VPS the right solution or should he be considering alternatives?

News from around the hosting industry

Our Industry News section is the place to find current headlines from around the world of hosting and infrastructure, but other general interest threads pop up in other sections of the forum, especially our Web Hosting Lounge. Here we highlight just a selection of some of the interesting items from around the forum:

  • Cloudflare deemed the most important internet company you’ve never heard of - An interesting interview with Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare, has just been published which discusses protecting speech on the internet, the contrast between speech in the US covered by the First Amendment and speech overseas, how governments might be able to regulate companies like Cloudflare and what that would even look like. Other topics covered include Cloudflare's role in warzones like the Ukraine with references to various political philosophers. The interview is available to listen to and is also transcribed.
  • Edge Centres acquires QuadraNet -  Announced this week, QuadraNet has been acquired by Australian firm Edge Centres, who plan to merge QuadraNet's platform in Los Angeles with the facilities it acquired in its purchase of LA-based Multacom in July 2023, and claims the acquisition will result in more than 100,000 sq ft (9,300 sqm) of white space in California alone. The company also has a Point of Presence (PoP) in Coresite’s One Wilshire carrier hotel data center in Los Angeles, California, adjacent to Quadranet’s Los Angeles data center. Edge Centres now operates 14 data centers across nine US metro areas, including St Louis, Kentucky; Northern Virginia; and Dallas Fort Worth, Texas. The company acquired US cloud firm CloneCone earlier this year after initially announcing plans for US expansion in April 2022. They also operates data centers across Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and Thailand.
  • Zayo unveils major 400G network upgrades and new routes - Global fiber network infrastructure provider Zayo Group has revealed the details of its most recent round of network improvements including a 400G-capable wavelength route that connects Atlanta and Washington, D.C., and its newest long-haul dark fiber route that connects Columbus to Pittsburgh. Along with adding 400G peering sites throughout North America and 27 critical IP points of presence (PoPs), Zayo is also growing its IP network.
  • Amazon Web Services cuts cloud computing jobs - Amazon announced layoffs last week for hundreds of cloud computing roles. Its latest report indicates that AWS represents 14% of its total revenue at Amazon. Amazon launched physical "Just Walk Out" stores offering self-checkout in 2020 and announced it would remove the system from stores in the US, impacting hundreds of sales, marketing and services jobs, along with physical store positions. The cuts will be global, with the majority in the U.S. in its home base of Seattle.
