DETAILS

SERVER DOWNTIME IS A THING OF THE PAST

You probably have heard of high availability. We have designed a configuration that is the gold standard for the most popular server software components used today. We have configurations for Apache and Nginx - web servers, mysql, mariaDB, postgresql - database, ceph, glusterfs - network file system. These components can be put together to provide full or partial high availablity for your critial components in your infrastructure. By leveraging HAMS, you have a turnkey solution for making your infrastructure highly available.

Health Checks

Heath checks are active throughout the system to identify failed components to help facilitate automatic failover/ alternate routing.

Internal Load balancer Service

Recieve incoming requests and distribute them among multiple web servers improving performance and availability.

HAMS Web Servers

Having multiple web servers allows for load balancing and redundancy, distributing the incoming traffic across multiple servers to handle high loads and ensuring availability even if one server fails. In addition, this allows for easy horizontal scaling during periods of high demand.

HAMS Network File System

Network File systems used within the infrastructure allows there to be no single point of failure. Files are available even if one or more file system servers become unavailable, offering redundancy and fault tolerance.

HAMS Database Cluster

Redundancy allows for automatic failover and data consistency in case of failures. It can also help improve proformance by distributing queries across multiple servers.

Why is High Availability So Important?

Reduced Downtime

  • Reducing or eliminating your downtime.
  • Our high availability systems are designed to continue operations even if your individual components fail
  • Increased service availability for your server components, which are crucial for your mission-critical applications and services.

Improved Data Protection

  • Converting your systems to impliment High availability involve redundant data storage or real-time data replication.
  • If one of your servers fail, another server with an identical copy of the data can take over, minimizing your risk of data loss.

Automatic Failover

  • In case of a system failure, our high availability infrastructures automatically will switch the load to a backup system with minimal or no service interruptions.
  • Our high availability solutions include load balancing, which distributes your workload across multiple computing resources.
  • This not only optimizes your resource use, but also helps avoid overburdening a single resource, which can lead to improved performance and reduced latency.

Load Balancing

  • Our engineer health checks, monitoring, and reporting will bring light to problems that out-of-the-box monitoring can miss
  • We set up scheduled server patching to keep your infrastructure with the latest available security patches
  • We identify bottleneck patterns when your systems are under heavy usage which you may not even notice

Business Continuity

  • By reducing the risk of downtime, our high availability helps ensures continuity for your business .
  • This is especially important when your business depends on their IT infrastructure for critical operations.

Enhanced User Experience

  • By providing reliable, continuous service, our high availability services will improve your user experience.
  • Your users expect applications and services to be available whenever they need them, and downtime can lead to user frustration and loss of business.

Compliance

  • Some industries have regulations requiring certain levels of system availability
  • Implementing our high availability infrastructure can help your business meet these requirements.

Cost Savings

  • Although implementing our high availability can involve upfront costs, the potential cost savings from avoiding downtime can be significant.
  • This includes not only direct costs (such as lost sales) but also indirect costs (such as damage to a company’s reputation).
