Application scenarios

Web server with central database

This option allows the serverloft customer to connect up to five servers. These can be configured as three web servers with two attached database servers. Databases work on the replication principle, i.e. data is held simultaneously on two servers. This accelerates the transmission of the data and also heightens the level of data security. In this scenario, the web servers remain externally accessible via the Internet. The database servers are only provided with one Internet connection to protect them from unauthorized access. This arrangement allows the customer to provide data quickly and securely.


Dedicated firewalls protecting your web servers

With this setup, a server is used as a dedicated firewall in front of the web servers in order to filter incoming traffic and protect the data on the servers. Only the firewall can be reached by outsiders. The web servers are linked to each other and are connected to the firewall via an internal network.


Central storage with NFS

Here, a central storage server, which can only be accessed via the internal network, is used in conjunction with the web servers. The web servers access the storage server by means of the NFS protocol or iSCSI procedures. In both cases, this means that data can be accessed from storage just as easily as data stored on the local hard disk. The data is, however, better protected against loss or unauthorized access, since it is hidden from the Internet when saved.

VPN

Five VPN connections are provided by serverloft free of charge with each internal network. This makes it possible to access the internal network and its servers remotely by means of a username and password. Access to the VPN server is provided via an out-of-band connection, accessible even if your server should become unresponsive on the public Internet.

Managed Loadbalancing Local

Optimized load distribution

Managed Loadbalancing Local allows you to route traffic to your servers via a serverloft-operated redundant, load-balancing infrastructure, thereby ensuring optimal server load distribution. The maintenance and administration of the necessary settings can be carried out using your control panel. This service includes the hardware, serverloft network connection and everything else associated with the Managed Load Balancing Local configured services. Support for the service is provided as an optional feature by serverloft in the form of its Managed Support.

The Managed Loadbalancing Local product is available in three different sizes and is governed by a separate contract:

Name of productMonthly feeMaximum connection
Managed Loadbalancing Local L€ 69,–50
Managed Loadbalancing Local XL€ 119,–100
Managed Loadbalancing Local XXL€ 199,–200
