Clustered Failover Hosting

Posted on 10.08.2006

Hosting Zoom, a provider of business-class shared, reseller and dedicated web hosting announced today it has introduced clustered cPanel Failover Hosting with real-time data replication, a revolutionary new combination of technologies that bolsters service reliability and increases server performance.

What is failover hosting? Via Webopedia, failover hosting is a backup operation that automatically switches to a standby database, server or network if the primary system fails or is temporarily shut down for servicing. Failover hosting is an important function of "mission-critical systems" that require constant connectivity and accessibility. Failover automatically and transparently to the user redirects requests from the failed or down system to the backup system that mimics the operations of the primary system.

Real-time failover hosting eliminates lost opportunity costs of missed e-business transactions. "The system is designed to maximize the available system resources during times of normal operation. Additionally, should an individual server failure occur, the system automatically reroutes incoming network requests and the priority becomes eliminating service downtime," said Kiet Duong, Hosting Zoom Founder & CEO. "Real-time failover hosting eliminates lost opportunity costs of missed e-business transactions."

Hosting Zoom’s Failover Hosting works by distributing the load across a series of servers in a clustered environment to improve overall performance, with each storing a real-time copy of web site data. If one server fails, incoming network requests are automatically routed to the available server within the cluster eliminating downtime. Clustered hosting technology is designed to eliminate the problems inherent with typical shared hosting infrastructures. This technology provides customers with a “clustered” handling of security, load balancing, and necessary website resources.
