iomart cloud services
In recent times virtualisation has become both associated with, and confused with cloud services. Cloud services can of course be deployed using physical resource only, without any virtualisation technology involved. The reason virtualisation has an impact is that it adds another 'layer of reliability'. This further layer, on top of the physical layers of reliability that we have become used to mitigates the risk factor associated with purchasing cloud services
Most buying decisions are made on the basis of some kind of risk analysis. "Do I trust this vendor and the solution as described?" "Can I risk putting my critical services on these platforms?" The layers of reliability the Group provides all add up to minimising its customer's risks and giving them the comfort that it has successfully eliminated any single points of failure, that the Group has full control of every deliverable in the solution and that it is constantly monitoring and managing the end to end infrastructure on the customers behalf.
The Group has now developed and deployed a virtual layer that is built on top of multiple layers of physical reliability and resilience. Using only the best in hardware and software and with the 'cloud control' operability that is unique to the iomart Group we can now deliver on this virtual layer.
This virtual layer can be deployed using single components in an architecture i.e. one web server, one database server etc., with the knowledge that there is a 'back up' component in the virtual layer, albeit not immediately available but coming to life in the event of failure. By their very nature virtual platforms also have the advantage of speed around deployment, provisioning etc.
If we then take this architecture a stage further and use the traditional physical resource policy of doubling up components i.e. two web servers, two database servers etc. then that eliminates another set of single points of failure. This adds a further layer of reliability which is we would describe as 'high availability'
If we then add in dual geography where there are two separate platforms across the Group's estate of UK wide data centres, again adding another layer of reliability then we can begin to envisage 'absolute or total availability'.
This is the direction that the iomart Group is taking with its cloud computing and services platforms.
The Group has the advantage of owning and controlling every aspect of service delivery and it will work hard to educate the market to ensure that it understands the advantages this provides.

IF you are looking for a host and have found iomart - keep looking! You will be horribly disappointed in the support you receive! Takes them 1-2+ weeks to respond to technical issues and if you are in USA - expect to be on hold long distance for 20-40+ minutes. STAY AWAY!
