MojoHost is excited to announce the launch of MojoIce, our new cold storage solution. MojoIce is designed to meet the needs of businesses looking for an active backup, internal content management, and other "cold" storage use cases.
As your business grows, so will the load that your servers need to handle. While this is generally a good thing, finding the right tools to scale for the high load created by this growth can be stressful for business owners. This type of setup should start straight from the beginning. You need a plan that won’t break the bank when you have low needs but can have added options when your website starts to grow and get more traffic. You need to foster a business model that is ready for growth straight from the start.
One way to do this is through Virtual Private Servers with MojoHost. There are several options available and you can start at the bottom, but level up when you’re ready. Each new tier has more exciting benefits like more CPU cores; more RAM, more storage and most importantly more transfer bandwidth and a higher speed connection. These types of plans allow your business some breathing room so that when you grow it’s easy to upgrade.
Another great way to scale your servers to optimize for growth is to use the cloud. The MojoCloud allows you to store files and access them with simple, low pricing and without the normal constraints of data storage. Cloud storage offers the ultimate in scalability because there are really no limits as to how much you can store.
In general, there are two schools of thought when it comes to scaling servers for growth and high load. First of all, you can scale up AKA vertically. This means you add resources to what you already have for more storage and bandwidth. You can also scale horizontally or “scale out” which means adding additional blocks of service to your hosting and is often called a “pay as you go” model because you basically add additional blocks of services to your program.
Whichever way you decide to do it, the experts at MojoHost can help you determine and implement the best scalable hosting and content delivery network options for your projects, even when they grow to experience high load.
