Optimising availability, performance and security

Server and hypervisor management options

  • Web service
  • Claranet provide an instance of an operating system that is running web server software such as Microsoft IIS or Apache. The Claranet team manages the infrastructure up to the web server configuration level. You upload new code to a holding area, and then raise a change request for Claranet to make the code ‘live’. To protect your site availability you cannot access the operating system or web server configuration to make changes. Claranet can also manage one or more server roles.
  • Database service
  • Claranet provide an instance of an operating system that is running database server software such as Microsoft SQL Server or MySQL. Claranet manage the infrastructure up to the database server configuration level. You can access the database instance using database tools to perform queries but cannot access the operating system or database server configuration to make changes. Any changes or additions to database structure are submitted via change request. Additional database servers can be added to create a segregated database environment.
  • Self-service hypervisor
  • Claranet provide a virtualisation hypervisor on hardware dedicated to you. You use a self-service portal to provision and change virtual machines, and carry the responsibility for managing all operating systems, applications and databases.
  • Managed hypervisor
  • Similar to the self-service hypervisor except that all provisioning is performed by Claranet.

Hardware management options

  • Firewall with internet breakout
  • Secures incoming and outgoing traffic, traffic between servers and breakout to the Internet from hosting servers or a Claranet MPLS network.
  • Load balancer
  • Distributes incoming network traffic evenly between multiple servers performing the same role.
  • Switching
  • Connects physical hardware such as servers and SANs to the physical network.
  • SSL certificates
  • Facilitates encrypted communications with a website and to confirm to a user that a server is not impersonating another.
  • Storage and backup
  • Provides disk based storage on which to store data, and allow data to be recovered if accidentally deleted and within a certain time window.
