WorpDrive has the wonderful advantage of starting up in a world of quite mature cloud computing.
So we make full use of it!
WorpDrive makes full use of cloud computing
From the outset we’ve run iControlWP and WorpDrive on cloud-hosted computing services – the websites, the iControlWP Dashboard, and now WorpDrive.
So what exactly are these cloud computing services?
iControlWP and WorpDrive are running on Rackspace Cloud Servers infrastructure.
This affords us the following advantages:
- Proven reliability. Rackspace promises a 100% network up-time guarantee. Rackspace is a fantastic platform where the support is 2nd to none – and all our customers know just how much importance we place on quality customer service.
- Unparalleled scalability. If you’ve ever run a dedicated server or a VPS, you’ll know the challenges of adding more resources when you need it. We’ve had these problems in the past until we moved to Rackspace. Using the Rackspace cloud platform allows us to seamlessly scale our systems with no impact to iControlWP App or WorpDrive.
- Redundancy. Let’s say one of our cloud servers does have an issue… it’s not really a problem. Since we backup our own data of course, we take regular iControlWP database snapshots and store them within Rackspace’s Cloud Files service. Further, our servers all have snapshots taken so that if one server does go offline, we can quickly fire up a new instance of the system, and we’re up and running again.
This all means that, as far is possible, all our systems and data are regularly backed-up, and easily recovered.
We will always ensure full access to your WordPress site backups.
When problems do occur, as is normal with technology, we couldn’t be more prepared to recover from a disaster than we are now.
