Hybrid Solutions

Hybrid and Multi-Server Solutions

Hybrid infrastructure encompasses the idea that the optimal infrastructure configuration for a business generally consists of more than just cloud. By combining bare metal with cloud infrastructure through one, unified, global platform, we’re able to deliver a better value than pure-play cloud. By utilizing a hybrid infrastructure, you can find the right component for the right job. In one way or another, all complex infrastructure configurations are hybrid.

SingleHop Named to the 2015 Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting Magic Quadrant

Our Infrastructure Products

Dedicated Server

Dedicated servers have long been the workhorse of the Internet. These devices are literally individual, physical computers that are used by only one client at a time.

Private Cloud

Private cloud combines the reliability and privacy of a dedicated server with the elasticity and redundancy of the cloud.

Virtual Server

Virtual server instances can be deployed in minutes, destroyed in seconds, and scaled to be as small or large as needed.

Use Cases for Hybrid Hosting

  • Burst into Public Cloud

    The ability to not only scale workloads into the public cloud, but also to rapidly create virtual machines delivers much needed agility to accommodate sudden spikes. By using a public cloud, companies can quickly pause or stop added resources. In this manner, the addition of public cloud to your workload creates a rapid means of meeting workloads, while keeping costs low.

  • Compliant Scalability

    Bare metal servers and private clouds offer a fast track towards PCI and HIPAA compliance. Scalability is limited to your total infrastructure if you run private cloud, and is near nonexistent for bare metal. However, by adding a public cloud to your compliant infrastructure, you build a platform that can conform to compliance regulations.

  • Databases

    Data, both big and small, benefits from raw processing power. The more you can maximize these resources, the better. Thus, cloud is not always the best fit. Some databases cannot scale horizontally. Other databases can bog down with the system resource requirements of using a hypervisor layer.

Hybrid Solutions and Configurations

Example Configuration #1

Dealing with unexpected spikes in traffic and resource usage can be a nightmare for e-commerce merchants. Public clouds can handle sudden spikes in traffic with ease. However, public clouds do not always play nice with compliances. Therefore, a hybrid solution would include public cloud VMs connected to bare metal servers via our private network for a flexible, compliant solution.

  • Two front-end public cloud servers.
  • Load balanced with a cloud load balancer.
  • Two back-end database servers replicated and connected via out-of-band private network.

Example Configuration #2

Cloud load balancers bring the elasticity of cloud to load balancing. They provide a rapid means to handle large amounts of traffic, seamlessly providing load balancing capacity to achieve exceptional fault tolerance. Pairing cloud load balancers with redundant firewalls creates a high availability platform capable of withstanding even the largest network loads.

  • Four front-end bare metal servers.
  • Behind redundant firewalls.
  • Supported by cloud load balancers.
