When it comes to the pros and cons of single server hosting and clustered hosting, clustered hosting is definitely on the winning side.
Here’s why clustered hosting can keep you out of harm.
Single Server Hosting:
- Single Point Failure – a part of the system which if it fails, the whole system will stop working and cease operation.
- Limited Capacity for Traffic: Your website resources might exceed at anytime.
- Periodic Reboots for any Upgrades
- Website Crashes due to High or Sudden Bursts of Website Traffic or Exceeding Resource Space
- The risk of malicious access due to other websites sharing the same server.
- Single point failure does not exist – if one server fails, the other servers will serve as a backup.
- Flexibility to scale up or scale down depending on your needs of resources.
- Constant availability – website continues to be available even if there’s an upgrade.
- Reliable in terms of balance loading of resources spreads out through the servers.
- Better security with the presence of a dedicated firewall to protect and screen your incoming and outgoing data.
Clustered Hosting provides a better safety net than single server hosting when it comes to managing your website. Multiple servers allow your website to be available to your viewers around the clock, hence the capacity to provide 24/7 service.
