Does Pagely Offer Plans to Split Traffic Across Multiple Servers?

Hosting with Pagely means the opportunity to get more – deeper flexibility, upscale performance and advanced security for your most critical WordPress applications.

Our High Availability plans divide traffic requests amongst different web nodes. Our standard HA plans provision two dedicated EC2 instances with a detached RDS for hosting the database where traffic load is split amongst by Load Balanced DNS routing.


Why Use High Availability?


HA introduces fault tolerance benefits against a single failure location. This is achieved by placing each web node in a separate Amazon Availability Zone for increased redundancy and maximized uptime. The essential driving goal to utilizing an HA configuration is to have an active secondary server in effect in the event your primary node wavered under heavy load. Everything is actively synced and auto-driven through file replication where any changes only need to be connected to the primary node. Read into the synchronization specifics in our support article: How To Connect To Your HA Server.

While uptime assurance is critical and a center feature point of High Availability, it may not always be your best option for serving high volumes of traffic. Depending on your needs, you may be better off considering a larger single server setup. Learn when each option is most suitable in our blog article: Scaling Up Vs. Scaling Out.


Going Beyond Standard


If your organization and websites require something more robust beyond our standard plans, our team certainly has the capacity to architect a custom cluster arrangement to scale your demand at any level, all based on AWS. We can also leverage smaller, single-function microservices to fulfill certain aspects of your website’s duties with assistance in configuring those for you.

Anything is possible at Pagely, we never shy away from anything along the lines of “customizable” with solutions to deliver the right degree of availability your organization requires.
