Cloud Server Hosting Platform Advantages

Enterprise-class resilience, with multi-layered security, and a self-healing architecture.

Core Technology: Xen Hypervisor, CloudLinux, OnApp Cloud Management

Just like Amazon AWS and Rackspace, we use Xen Hypervisors as the virtualization foundation of our public cloud solutions.

High availability:
Automatic failover

OnApp constantly monitors the status of servers in the cloud, and features an extremely valuable automatic failover process if a hypervisor becomes unavailable.

Failover is initiated in 15 seconds if OnApp receives no response from a hypervisor, and the virtual machines it hosts are automatically migrated to another suitable hypervisor in the cloud.

Virtual machine backups can also be automated, in addition to manual backup and restore functions.

Anti-spoofing, anti-sniffing firewalls
Keeping more of the bad guys out!

OnApp features multi-layered security. In addition to hypervisor security features, we implement a Customer Isolation Module on hypervisor servers. This anti-spoof/anti-sniff firewall technology ensures that only authorized traffic is sent to/from virtual machines, keeping your customer’s data and applications safer.

Secure Client Isolation:
Even in a shared hosting environment

All tenants on the server are isolated from each other so if one goes down everyone else is still safe and stable.
CloudLinux utilizes a kernel level technology to set resource limits per tenant. This ensures a tenant can never use more than the resources given to them. Therefore, your site cannot slow down the entire server, nor can any other websites on the server slow down the server.

Each user’s file system is also effectively isolated into its own environment preventing one user from seeing any other users or their files on the server. This creates a new level of security, making it much more difficult for hackers to attack, deface, or steal data from a shared hosting server.

Advanced Datacenter:
Built for your growth success.

Our tier 3 compliant privately operated Canadian datacenter ensures fast connectivity to your website via our fiber optic network connections, while maintaining a high level of service quality and uptime at an affordable cost.

Self-Healing Redundant Servers:
Say good-bye to downtime.

The main muscle in any cloud infrastructure is the Hypervisor Servers. Our Dell servers have redundancy at numerous levels. Starting from server cooling to storage and power, this decreases the amount of full server failures and allows us to maintain servers without any downtime.

Redundant Network:
Proven & Reliable Infrastracture Hardware.

Cisco is the worldwide leader in networking equipment. Our entire networking infrastructure is powered by their routing and switching equipment, which allows us to maintain a reliable and fast network.

Instant Setup:
Get started within minutes.

We mean it when we say, “Get started now!” Your account & domain name will be instantly setup after making your payment, you will be supplied with all the information you need instantly. You will receive an email including all the relevant information regarding your customer support center account and your cPanel access credentials.

Fault Tolerant Storage:
No more downtime for drive replacements.

Our storage system offers redundancy that allows for simultaneous hard drive failures and drive replacement without shutting the server down. This means that we can see a disk failure, replace the drive, with zero downtime.

High Server Security:
Protecting you at multiple layers.

Server security is one of the most important aspects of shared hosting. Our server administrators use two-factor physical authentications in order to access servers to avoid unauthorized logins. Also, all the management portals are protected using 2048 bit encryption.

Green Web Hosting:
Entirely powered using hydroelectricity.

Our datacenter infrastructure is designed to be extremely power efficient. This means that our datacenter is one of the greenest datacenters in Canada. Our entire power supply is supplied from North America’s largest hydroelectricity producer.

Affordable Web Hosting:
Best bang for your buck.

We understand the importance of affordability for our customers. During our past years in the industry, we have always aimed to provide you the highest level of service with the latest technologies at the lowest rate in the industry and continue to do so.
