A zero downtime hosting solution - technically minded and skilled person needed!


Firstly I do not profess to a genius when it comes to the technical aspects of web hosting so I was wondering if someone could possibly point me in the direction of how to do a specific kind of hosting setup or suggest me an alternative solution which already exists in the market place.

Basically I have an idea to setup a hosting company that can offer zero downtime, truly, regardless of network or hardware failures.

If you are available to help me and possibly do the work required please PM me or add me on msn:

Thank you

Thread Summary Please be aware that every offer has limits beyond what is displayed in the thread. You should visit the site advertising and read any Terms of Service or Acceptable Use Policy they have in place. If you can't find answers on how they measure what you're purchasing, ask. If the offer or request doesn't regard some type of hosting, you still need to research beyond what’s printed in the ad.
  • Research any provider to know what limits are in place, especially with any offer concerning disk space and/or bandwidth. These are generally defined in the TOS or AUP.
  • Read provider reviews. If you find no reviews, create a thread and ask for others' first-hand experience with the provider.
  • If you're unsure on the exact details of an offer - ask. Simply respond to this thread and ask the provider for clarification.

Zero downtime is practically impossible and generally requires that the applications themselves be cluster/failure aware.

In many cases you'd be better off modifying or creating a application that operates on a pre-built "cloud" platform. Even with this there will still be downtime.

Common sense is not so common.

0% is impossible in the world.

Clustering DNS and mirroring severs around the world would give 99.99999...% uptime, but never 100%.

Cloud could be an option, but I would still suggest mirroring servers between DCs around the world if you want the closest to 100%
