Enterprise Cloud Hosting

Secure, performant, and highly available cloud hosting

Keeping your business online all the time

We manage high availability hosting solutions for a number of UK rail industry customers. These sites have to achieve 99.99% up time to meet committed obligations to the Department for Transport. They can experience sudden traffic spikes during weather incidents and disruption events. Our custom hosting solutions ensure that these sites remain highly performant, even during high traffic.

We offer:

  • AWS hosting using Infrastructure as Code configuration
  • Content Delivery Network and Web Application Firewall setup and management (Cloudflare or Akamai)
  • Risk managed deployment processes with rollbacks and versioned releases
  • 24/7/365 performance / health monitoring all the way through the stack
  • Scalability by design: We can ensure your site will autoscale on demand for cost effective high performance
