We host single zones all the way up to complex, hybrid platforms for some of the most well known brands and fastest growing Internet companies in Europe. Whatever your requirements, we have what it takes to deliver success, every time. Our approach is to become fully involved with our clients. We are extremely customer-centric and helping you to succeed is key to our strategy.
We learn what our clients goals are, from both a business and a technical perspective, and we help them to achieve these. Our service includes full management into the application layer, via individual customer ‘run books’. Not only do we take care of all data centre services, hardware, OS and critical, pre-installed software, we also custom compile and help with debugging, database optimisations, configuration issues and code problems. We’ll dig deep and then suggest solutions to make your sites and applications perform at their best.
EveryCity is one of the few hosting providers in existence with a pedigree in Solaris hosting. Solaris, and Solaris-based technologies, are central to our hosting platform and have been throughout the life of the company. It’s a truly enterprise class operating system and has been proven for many, many years in some of the most demanding environments around, such as banking and finance. As a result, it comprises a set of features which make it – and derivatives such as SmartOS – the best operating system on the market by far: features such as the ZFS files system, the Service Management Framework (SMF), DTrace and lightweight virtualisation. All these combine to produce an OS which out performs Windows and Linux by a considerable margin and is far more reliable, flexible and easily managed.
Modern servers are powerful beasts, and often sit 90% idle. We therefore make extensive use of Solaris virtualisation (Zones) to help put that power to use, saving you money, whilst also lowering your carbon footprint. Not only that, but virtualisation gives you many benefits including: compartmentalisation, scalability, resilience, flexibility and security.
If you are interested in moving to us, but worried about downtime or developer resources, we’ve got it covered. Our migration service is fully included at no additional charge. We will assist with moving all of your sites and applications to your new hosting platform with EveryCity. This includes all domains, SSL certificates, databases or emails. We do the hard work, so you don’t have to.
