Bytemark Hosting is the UK's "geek hosting outfit of choice" because its programmer & network-engineer team have built it that way since 2002, with their own tools, software and technical expertise. They understand web applications and network infrastructure equally, and host names such as Bostik, dopplr.com and Britain's largest mystery shopping company, Retail Eyes. Their hosting starts at only £15 per month and runs to multi-site managed setups for customers with the fussiest demands of reliability and failover.
Stingray is a high performance software-based Application Delivery Controller (ADC), designed to deliver faster and more reliable access to public web sites and private applications. Stingray frees applications from the constraints of legacy, proprietary hardware-based load balancers, enabling them to run in any physical, virtual or cloud environment, and to migrate and scale on-demand. Stingray further differentiates itself by more effectively integrating with applications - meaning that application owners can get their product to market faster, with better performance.
Stingray enables enterprises to deliver fast, secure and available applications across any combination of physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures with a single point of application delivery control and monitoring across all locations. With Stingray, enterprises can also unlock the promise of Cloud - autoscaling applications on-demand, balancing across multiple clouds, while leveraging existing data center investments by seamlessly delivering applications than span both infrastructures. Ultimately, this allows an enterprise to align their costs much more closely to their business, with the ability to scale infrastructure costs to meet demand in real time- without compromising the experience at peak times.
