The Rapid Servers Cloud is a state-of-the-art public cloud service, offering true high-availability, redundant hosting with automatic failover and dynamic scaling.
It is no wonder cloud computing has been embraced by the web industry. Built-in features such as high availability, dynamic scaling and crash recovery (automatic failover) are appealing to any online business owner. Unfortunately, users of cloud services often sacrifice some performance because of the extra overhead added by the virtualization platform. Commodity cloud hosting can simply not compete with a bare-metal server when it comes to raw performance. That is why our cloud platform has been designed for speed from the ground up to deliver the performance necessary to run Magento and other mission-critical applications.
One of the major drawbacks of cloud hosting has always been that it offers significantly slower IO performance compared to a dedicated server. In the cloud, storage is usually distributed across multiple nodes in a SAN for redundancy, but at the expense of higher latency and slower performance. Our cloud utilizes a combination of local and SAN based storage to allow significantly faster speeds while still beeing protected against disk failures. Furthermore, we use only 100% SSD in a RAID-10 configuration, supporting read speeds of up to 12 Gb/s. Disk performance greatly affects the speed of Magento because of its fragmented file structure and large number of database queries.
The benchmarks were all run on similar configurations with ~2 MB RAM.
A true cloud solution should have no single point of failure and offer high availability (HA). The Rapid Servers Cloud combines dual power and network with automatic failover in case a hypervisor fails.
Our cloud uses only Solid State (SSD) storage, delivering unprecedented IO performance that positions us miles ahead of any competitor. In addition, each cloud server includes a 1 Gbps uplink for high speed network connectivity (10 times more than industry average).
Don't let slow, unreliable hosting become an impediment to your success. Our robust cloud platform facilitates rapid growth and traffic spikes with advanced features such as dynamic scaling and load balancing.
Most cloud providers will just give you a standard software stack consisting of Apache, PHP and MySQL with default settings. This is simply not good enough for Magento. We will tweak and tune every aspect of your server for optimal performance.
