Cloud Hosting is a new form of web hosting that has gained great popularity in recent years. The fundamental idea behind Cloud Hosting is 'Divide and Rule' - a virtualization layer allows for separation of resources required by the server across instances and/or devices and this connected entity is known as a ‘Cloud’. This design allows Cloud to scale & offers greater protection from isolated device failures.
A website hosted on a Shared Hosting Server Shares resources such as Storage, RAM and CPU with many other sites, that could range from a few to hundreds, but is limited by hardware limitations on that device. On the contrary, our Cloud Hosting Services offer a nearly unlimited ability to handle traffic spikes because of a virtualization layer with a separate CEPH storage cluster and upgradable CPU Core and RAM model. If one storage instance is rendered inaccessible, the other instances will be able to serve the stored information due to the 3N redundancy.
Varnish cache is a web application accelerator that can speed up your website by up to 1000 percent. Varnish is mostly used for content heavy websites. Caching is used by the top 10k websites with high-traffic including Wikipedia and many online news sites such as The New York Times, The Hindu, The Guardian, etc. It is also used by social and content sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, and Tumblr.
Smartweb's Cloud Hosting Services offer maximum reliability by automatically distributing three data mirrored copies across multiple devices for data safety. Every website is hosted on a virtual partition of multiple physical servers which draws resources like disk space and bandwidth from these.
We use Ceph Storage which provides a 3N level of redundancy. In regards to computing, it is completely distributed without any point of failure, scalable to the exabyte level and also freely available. It also replicates data and makes it fault-tolerant, and requires no specific hardware support. Ceph is designed to be both self-healing and self-managing, thus aiming to minimize administration time and other costs.

Smartweb maintains weekly backups for disaster recovery, and on request, for a fee, we may be able to restore your web, email, and database content subject to availability. However, we recommend you to take full responsibility for your own backups and NOT rely on Smartweb to keep copies of your content safe. Alternatively, you can set up automated backups through CodeGuard.
