A cloud-based solution, the Medieval platform uses Docker™ containers to run copies of your website over many high-end servers. This provides for High Availability (HA) failover and horizontal scaling.
Think of container instances as mini servers. Each instance is pre-built and optimised to power your website.
Containers are automatically moved around on our cluster to provide the most optimal performance and stability. If you have more than one container instance, your traffic is balanced between them.
Power when you need it
Each container powering your website is tweaked and built using knowledge and experience gleaned from over 20 years working with linux systems and networking.
Our sophisticated setup gives your website a Varnish frontend web-accelerator, coupled with the fast NGINX web-server. Traffic surge? No problem. Additional containers can be deployed to handle your visitors in less than 10 seconds.
