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.

eBoundHost is the best. I have dealt with many hosting providers over the last 10 years. eBoundHost surpasses them all. Absolutely the highest level of quality service anywhere. Do yourself a big favor and sign on with eBoundHost.
Over the years, I've dealt with many companies. None come close to equaling the service and price offered by eBoundHost.
Every time I have contacted my host provider. They have responded with speed, courtesy and accuracy they are professional and a joy to work with.
I have worked with many hosting companies over the course of my years in the website building and design business. I can say with certainty that eBoundHost.com is among the elite companies. I would and have recommended them to anyone.
SUPER SUPPORT - even during "off hours" - Sundays & holidays. Responses have always been within minutes of the initial call or email. The BEST vendor I have ever used in my 10 plus years as a webhosting services consumer.
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!
eBoundHost provides the very best service I've experienced in hosting. It takes less than 24h to get an answer to any question. They're great.
I have been a customer since December of 2001, and the service has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend eBoundHost highly.
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.
Great customer service. After looking around for a while we signed up with eBoundHost. And I can assure you that we made right decision. Customer service is so good that I don't have words to explain. I would recommend this service to everyone.
Fast, reliable, full of features... Over the years, I have used more than a dozen hosts, both the big ones and smaller ones; eBoundHost.com is by far my favorite.
I was just looking over our emails and adding up how much time you guys have taken to get me squared away with my new eboundhost account. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have fast, dependable hosting and the kind of immediate support I've gotten from you, after having struggled with a sub-standard host for years. eboundhost has, in the short time I've been with you, already saved me hundreds of dollars of billable time. My thanks.
