The Net-at-hand infrastructure is built to be flexible and scalable so that your client’s websites are always available. The infrastructure goes beyond a typical web server in that it is not tied to a single server.
The Net-at-hand infrastructure is built in two separate parts—the application servers and the content delivery servers.
The application servers render html pages, handle the back-end website admin area, and run any plugins that you may have installed on your site.
Net-at-hand runs multiple instances of the core application on a cloud-based virtual server system. The infrastructure allows us to launch virtual machines in a matter of minutes to respond to the load needs of the system.
Images, multi-media, and download files are all served from a dedicated content delivery system which is guarded against hardware failure using multiple, redundant servers and raid storage.
A backup copy of the entire Net-at-hand database is performed daily to ensure that your data is never lost. The backup is to prevent the possibility of data loss because of a system failure and is not available to individual users for specific data restoration.
The entire Net-at-hand infrastructure exists only for serving website content, and as such is completely locked down for other services. You do not have to worry about a hacker gaining access to your content because of a security flaw in an extraneous piece of software.
