Mission Critical Cluster Hosting
When being down can impact your bottom line, you need cluster hosting. The benefit of clustering isn’t just having more servers with increased performance. It’s configuring them in a way that reduces risk, prevents failure and delivers high availability. Giving you peace of mind.
For more than a decade, Edge has been a leader in hosting mission-critical secure clusters with the capacity to accommodate millions of concurrent users. We were one of the first to implement fully automated F5 load balancers, and we were configuring cluster environments before most people even knew what clustering was. Today, more than 50% of our business is in cluster hosting.
Our engineers configure each cluster based on your requirements and budget — and only after we carefully consider the application stack, disk i/o, CPU and memory utilization, percentage of code vs. media served, number of concurrent users, session persistence, database performance, projected growth, and potential traffic surges.
Every client gets a personal team of engineers who are available 24/7, 365 for consultations and recommendations. They also monitor and assume responsibility for all hardware, software, databases and operating systems. Additionally, every 36 months, customers receive a free technology refresh (with help from our in-house implementation specialists) to upgraded hardware — a service you won’t find included anywhere else in the industry.
