Need a High-Availability Multi-Datacenter Dedicated Server setup. Where to find?
For a project we need a hosting company that can provide us with a fully managed multi-datacenter dedicated server solution of 4 servers being located 2 on each datacenter.
For our project we need to have Real-Time Replication of data and databases between the two datacenters, so the distante between them cannot be longer than 100Km (best will be around 15 to 30 Km).
Connection between the 2 datacenters should be made using a provate lan and also a hosting enviroment using the propely software to ensure real time replicaiton of data and failover availability to ensure all keeps running if one datacenter is down.
So does anyone knows any hosting company that provides / sells this kind of hosting service?
Already been browsing but until know we dont find anyone that can meet our needs.
There are few enterprise providers who does offer that..
Make sure you qualify provider with the following:
1- Multi-location datacenters in a tier II or best tier III.
2- Existing connection between datacenter.. solid providers already have this in place.
3- backup/replication ability in place already.
4- No contract so you can cancel after a month if you don't see a match in the offering to your project needs.
5- They must utilize fast speed links for your upload to ensure enough bandwidth needed for replication.
6- Would be great if they also offer multi-homed IP scope that can be routed between datacenters in case of on DC failure (Advanced)..
I can add more to the list but that's all I can think of at the moment.
