Scaling Magento With Hardware – Dedicated Servers

jetrailscluster

This morning, I spoke with a customer who wants to prepare their environment for the upcoming holiday season.  Their Magento site is becoming an unexpected success story, growing by leaps and bounds, so they need a more robust hosting environment to keep up with their growth.  They were concerned about the difficulty of scaling on “bare metal” (meaning not-in-the-cloud) dedicated servers.

eBoundHost can seamlessly “scale up” your environment to prepare for holiday traffic and then back down again after the holidays are over.

The Amazon marketing team did a great job of putting out the message that you can only scale on AWS but it’s simply not true.  No matter where you host the same work has to be done to size, test, integrate and maintain the environment.  All of this work still has to be done on a public cloud and you would have to do it yourself. Its even easier to scale on the JetRails® platform because our engineers handle the entire process, you pick up the phone and we take care of it all.

Additionally, bare metal environment performs much better than comparable cloud packages because there is a virtualization penalty and time-share restrictions for CPU, RAM and disk I/O in the cloud.  With bare metal all the resources are fully yours, available at any time.

Dedicated hardware resources are less expensive to operate than a cloud environment.  In order to account for the uneven usage of the cloud, AWS deployments are typically 2-3 times more expensive than comparable bare metal servers.  There is simply no magic, the cloud is just servers in someone’s data center.

Expert help is always available.  If you have more questions about scaling for holiday traffic, call us (800) 554-9990.

We at Alico have 4 domain names which we started subscribing at eBoundHost since more than 4 years. In brief they are the best webhosting provider with a sexy Control Panel and perfect fast response support.

I came to eBoundHost after a very bad experience with a so called "big boy" - you know one of those places you are only a number. I have been a satisfied customer for more than 4 years now. The support is second to none.

eBoundHost.com has the best customer service in ANY industry. Their support staff answers phone calls and emails immediately and they have time and time again gone over and above their responsibilities to make sure I am taken care of and that my clients are happy. I have many websites hosted here from small business to corporate level and have dealt with many hosting companies in the industry and eBoundHost.com is by far the BEST hosting provider there is. Great prices, great service, great hosting packages, and a killer reseller program! THANK YOU AGAIN :)

Reliability and customer service that is rare and refreshing. We have been using eBoundHost for several years and unlike many companies who's service wanes over the years, the staff at eBound has consistently delivered top notch performance. Bravo!

Don Bailey

From using your hosting services for dozens of web clients and appreciating your wonderful customer service (all the while enjoying spending my meaty affiliate checks), I look forward to growing with you and watching you evolve surely and steadily into a powerhouse of a force to be reckoned with for your competitors. In an overcrowded abyss of hosting providers it is an absolute MUST to stand out above the crowd if you want to claim your stake and play with the big boys. Period. All I can say is this...Look Out World - GAME ON!!!

Cost, technical support and promptness of return calls are of paramount importance to me since most of my work is done on the road and waiting for a reply is frustrating. eBoundHost has been a pleasure to work with friendly, courteous and professional.
