Ontario, Canada – (The Hosting News) – October 9, 2008 – Web hosting company, Cartika Hosting, has developed a new High Availability Linux (HAL) clustered hosting service, offering a range of targeted solutions, in addition to a streamlined web interface.
The new HAL services feature completely redundant clustered architecture with additional load balancing of all services within the cluster. Complimented by predictive failure analysis, Countinous Data Protection and enterprise grade Anti-Spam and Anti-Virus features.
Andrew Rouchotas, Cartika’s CEO explains that the unique aspect of HAL is that it resolves most common issues associated with shared hosting. By spreading loads over multiple nodes, HAL allows websites to burst well beyond normal CPU and RAM allocations without overloading servers. Additionally, service is more reliable as a downed server node will not impact service availability.
Mr. Rouchotas noted, ”HAL solves the problems typically associated with shared hosting by spreading services and loads across a fleet of load balanced nodes. We are able to dramatically increase the resource availability and capacity to any given website hosted. Additionally, we are able to increase reliability by building physical server redundancy into all services.”
A Pressure Release System ensures that the system will never become overloaded during periods of very large bursts by Quing request and also acts as an indicator for a requirement to add additional resources (i.e. nodes) to a given array without resulting in cluster instability.
Users get real multiple domain hosting allowing granual email, ftp, stats and web options control for each domain and DNS zone, as well as an Ajax based webmail solution powered by Roundcube. Spam is essentially eliminated with Mailfoundry Enterprise grade spam appliance integrated into users control panels and included for free with any HAL package.
HAL is a premium hosting service transcending industries, sectors and company size. With their range of services, Cartika specializes in providing small to medium sized and enterprise businesses the very best in high availability web hosting, complete with service that includes security firewalls, load balanced architecture, redundant storage arrays, continuous data protection, mail foundry anti-virus and anti-spam protection, and much more.
Mr. Rouchotas added, ”The TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) analysis for HAL is very strong for any business serious about their website performance, availability, and scalability. For $100 a month, a business can acquire high availability hosting for all of their core services. The solution is more reliable and robust then a dedicated server and solves the typical problems associated with shared hosting environments. Additional value adds as found in the redundant, end user accessible backup solution as well as the integrated Mailfoundry anti-spam/virus appliance round off this offering and positively impact a company’s TCO calculations.”
