[Q]: What is AHA cluster?
[A]: While other hosts are still stuck with the old physical infrastructure, over the past two years Fluid Hosting has decided to take on new Virtualization infrastructure. AHA stands for Affordable High Availability, a concept that we started to develop last year. More than $160,000 in equipment costs and man hours have been invested into this. With complete virtualization on both storage and servers level, we are able to offer you hosting services on a more solid, scalable, liquid platform. Our AHA cluster is composed of an array of Virtual Machines running on a Citrix XenServer Essentials Platinum backed by Dell/EqualLogic iSCSI array with N+1 redundancy built in the infrastructure (redundant iSCSI path, redundant network links, redundant server nodes, and so on). This allows us to optimize our server resources better while at the same time reducing our operational cost, which translates to a cost saving that we can pass to you.
[Q]: how can we use our disk space?
[A]: Some hosts will try to offer gimmicks to their customers. They will offer a large amount of disk space, yet restrict its use in their fine print. Not with us. You pay for the disk space, you can use it as you see fit, as long as you do not violate our AUP (e.g., storing illegal materials, etc). Do you want some space to store your images online? Feel free to use your disk space. Do you need to backup your files online? No problem. No restriction. Period.
[Q]: You seem to be offering a lot so cheaply. Are you overselling?
[A]: Of course not. We understand that our new plans come late in the game. But the reason is because we do not want to offer something that we cannot deliver. Over the years, many things have been done to ensure that we can deliver what we offer. Our AHA cluster is totally scalable to accommodate your needs. At any point we are able to enlarge the server's disk space and resources, thanks to the complete virtualization in the storage and server layer.
[Q]: Are you sure you are not overselling? What about bandwidth? How about other resources?
[A]: We do not like to oversell what we have. Call us a stubborn and old school, but we like to play it safe. You can use all the bandwidth allocated to you (and even more). The one thing we will monitor is that you do not use the server resources more than your fair share usage. This is still a shared hosting environment where you are still sharing the server resources with other customers. As long as you are utilizing your fair usage, feel free to use all the disk space and traffic allowance you have on your account.
