Joomla Hosting Server Technology

Platform

Platform

We only use Dell servers in our web hosting platform. Our platform is designed to be highly redundant and all data is stored in network disk arrays.

Data is automatically synchronised between the arrays so that in the event of an array failing the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime. Each array is also backed up each night to a separate backup cluster which is then written to tape and stored off-site.

Data centre

Data centre

We utilise uninterruptable power supplies and an n+1 generator setup to ensure constant and clean energy to our infrastructure. The data centre is protected by fire suppression, monitored by CCTV both externally and internally, has 24x7x365 on-site security and the building is surrounded by an 8ft perimeter fence.

Security

Security

We are automatically informed of new security patches via our vendor. Patches are applied within 24 hours. Our own platform is scanned each month for application vulnerabilities and we use a network scanner to identify weaknesses in our network.

Dean Marshall Consultancy specialise in LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) hosting. Linux is a UNIX-like operating system, Apache is webserver software, MySQL is the database software and PHP is a web scripting language.

Approximately 65% of the Internet’s websites use Apache hosting. Apache best fits the requirements for reliable PHP hosting, wep don’t believe there’s a better platform for Joomla - PHP and MySQL hosting.
