Cloud Hosted SERVERS
Austlink can provide you with a range of hosted servers on the Amazon Web Services EC2 cloud. These can included Domain Controllers, DNS Servers, Web Servers and SQL Servers.
Amazon EC2 Servers
Elastic – Amazon EC2 enables you to increase or decrease capacity within minutes, not hours or days. You can commission one, hundreds or even thousands of server instances simultaneously.
Completely Controlled – You have complete control of your instances. You have root access to each one, and you can interact with them as you would any machine. Instances can be rebooted remotely. You also have access to console output of your instances.
Flexible – You have the choice of multiple instance types, operating systems, and software packages. Amazon EC2 allows you to select a configuration of memory, CPU, instance storage, and the boot partition size that is optimal for your choice of operating system and application.
Designed for use with other Amazon Web Services – Amazon EC2 works in conjunction with Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon SimpleDB and Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) to provide a complete solution for computing, query processing and storage across a wide range of applications.
Reliable – Amazon EC2 offers a highly reliable environment where replacement instances can be rapidly and predictably commissioned. The service runs within Amazon’s proven network infrastructure and datacentres. The Amazon EC2 Service Level Agreement commitment is 99.95% availability for each Amazon EC2 Region.
Secure – Amazon EC2 provides numerous mechanisms for securing your compute resources.
Amazon EC2 includes web service interfaces to configure firewall settings that control network access to and between groups of instances.
When launching Amazon EC2 resources within Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), you can isolate your compute instances by specifying the IP range you wish to use, and connect to your existing IT infrastructure using industry-standard encrypted IPsec VPN. You can also choose to launch Dedicated Instances into your VPC. Dedicated Instances are Amazon EC2 Instances that run on hardware dedicated to a single customer for additional isolation.
Server - Monitoring
All of our servers are monitored by our engineers on an almost real time basis. To do this we have employed the latest state of the art monitoring software which tests all of the server's critical components every few minutes If an error is detected or if the server is being stressed we will most likely know it before you do. This allows us to be pro-active in establishing a solution before it has any effect on your business productivity.
