Technical Stuff

Most shared hosting resides on a single server. One high end server is provisioned with an Apache web server, PHP/Perl, MySQL database engine, a mail server, an IMAP server, a POP server and various secondary services which, in tandem, provide the hosting service. A finite number of customers can be hosted per server and, when one server is full, another is provisioned. When a website grows too large for the resources one of these systems can provide, it is generally moved to a dedicated machine.

The inChurch Cloud is Different! We harness the power of dozens of servers. Your website is no longer constrained to a single piece of hardware.

We store your website data on vast multi-disk arrays, each with 24TB of storage. These arrays are each replicated to a neighbour and that data is then sent using rsync to an off-site location for disaster recovery.

In essence there are always 3 whole copies of your website and hundreds of snapshots. Data integrity is monitored in real time so that lengthy, offline filesystem checks which might normally cause downtime are not required. In the event of a complete storage node failure, its neighbour would take over its duties with no loss of data.

When a user visits your website, an advanced layer 7 load balancer despatches that request to one of our backend application servers. These process your website’s code, whether that is static HTML, PHP, Perl, ASP, Ruby and feed that data back to the load balancer. This all happens seamlessly and on a per request basis. This means that, should a site receive a large influx of traffic due to being featured on TV, for instance, each webserver only sees a modest increase in traffic and continues to perform normally. This is in contrast to traditional hosting systems which would quickly become overloaded. How often have you been watching Dragon’s Den, heard a website mentioned, tried to visit it and found it to be inaccessible? That wouldn’t happen with our system as such a traffic surge is a drop in the ocean compared to the traffic volumes already being processed.

Your frontend web application is served by one of our dedicated application nodes, chosen in a “round robin” fashion every time a request is made to your website. Packed with RAM and CPU power, these servers only deal serving web pages and aren’t hampered by providing other services such as email, DNS, etc.

Unlike almost any other hosting provider, we don’t limit overall CPU time at all. However, we do have sophisticated systems in place which will prevent a single user monopolising resources across the cluster, either through a highly inefficient application or an attempt to do batch processing (or anything more nefarious) on the front end web servers. Such processes are detected and killed within 60 seconds ensuring that the cluster is always fast, all of the time. For users who do need to perform background processing (such as image encoding, video encoding, database imports, etc) we provide specialised servers for this with full access to your webspace at no extra cost.

We take multiple daily ‘snapshots’ of your data. This captures changes and enables us to recover a file from almost any point in the last 30 days. In addition, each storage device is replicated not once but twice to prevent data loss due to hardware failure.

Database servers are a special case. They need 2 things to perform well; disk i/o and RAM. We don’t use network storage, instead opting for fast, local, SAS disks in RAID 10 configuration or, in some cases, solid state storage. Each database is dumped to an SQL file in your home directory once per day and that data is then replicated in the normal way. If you require more frequent SQL dumps, this can be set up via your control panel.

All our hosted service benefit from uninterruptible power and the cluster is no exception. Every server is fed from the primary building UPS, a large battery bank which ‘smoothes out’ any fluctuation in the mains voltage and provide standby power in the event of a loss of utility power, allowing time for the generators to start up. Once started, the generators can power the datacentre indefinitely in the case of a large scale power outage.

In addition, storage nodes benefit from dual power supplies and are fed from a secondary UPS, keeping things live and your data safe if the primary building UPS were ever to fail.
