What Levels of Redundancy are Employed at Pagely?

Redundancy means having a backup plan in the event something severe were to strike your web server. With the various layers and types of redundancy possible across any web hosting infrastructure (network, geographical, hardware, power), Amazon Web Services brings superior deliverability and planning to our cloud platform.

Built-In Redundancy on AWS

Using Amazon EC2 instances to create the foundation for our VPS hosting plans, precise redundancy starts with their Availability Zones (AZs). These zones are unique to a specific datacenter region, independently powered and insulated from each other, having their own network and security architectures. Through AWS, we have a range of datacenter locations we can provision your Pagely VPS in.

To further amplify failure recovery, we partition your WordPress database onto a shared Aurora RDS cluster, or its own separate machine using Amazon RDS (Relational Database Service). Amazon RDS provides you the benefit of placing resources and data in multiple locations through multi-AZ replication, ensuring data reliability and durability.

Learn why Aurora RDS in our preferred choice for hosting your WordPress site in our article: The Advantages of Amazon Aurora

By replicating the instance holding your data across multiple AZs, you significantly reduce the chance of outage or failure. We are so confident in the way we have built upon AWS, we even offer 99.99% availability for our infrastructure, detailed in our Service Level Agreement.

High Availability Plans

Typically when customers request higher certainty levels of redundancy and additional features, they’re seeking fault-tolerance using a High Availability (HA) cluster. This involves two front-end EC2 web servers in rotation, load balancing your traffic which are synced across multiple AZ’s. Explore more info on how HA brings additional assurance to your WordPress applications and when it makes most sense for your business.

In the event of any type of failure, all single and dual node VPS systems have mechanisms in place to efficiently provide a backup or replacement. Read into our disaster recovery scenarios to learn more.
