We are looking for one time system architect work so that we can get our servers/apps to be more secure, safe in terms of backups, usability & accessibility.
We are looking to use WHMCS + cPanel.
We want to offer to our clients Shared Hosting Services, Email Hosting , VPS and dedicated servers , Site Builder services and Domain Registration!
We want a Server arhitecture for our hosting company so we do not have problems with overloads, backup problems in case a server fails, anti ddos system we want to offer a 100% uptime to our share hosting services customers.
We would like to get the most cost-efficient solution for this.
@THCServers Building a fully redundant server architecture from scratch with the ability to scale out on demand, high availability, failover, with 100% uptime is going to cost you bigger than you think. Your going to be looking for a heavy virtualized solution like VMware where the base cost per CPU socket is $3500, not including hardware or other licensing costs. Double the cost of your networking gear (switches, nics, etc) because you need N+1 redundancy, and the list goes on.
If you were to follow best practices and do it right this would cost a low-ball figure of at least $100k with minimal infrastructure.
My recommendation: Go with a provider that already has already put the investment and time into having this architecture built. Buy a cloud server.
