We will integrate your hosted database with other products we offer in our range to ensure your site works at its peak capacity. We’ll also make it simple to use suitable servers for your database, including Oracle, DB2, SQL or even open sourced databases.
Requirements for database hosting
- Storage – There must be hard drives big enough to store all the data otherwise it can affect the database query speed. Increasing the speed at which data can be read will have a big effect on performance. It’s recommended to split server elements across several drives.
- Processors – Check the server’s CPU usage to find out the required speed of the CPU.
- Memory – The more RAM there is, the faster queries will run, as more data is cached in the memory.
- Operating system – This determines how much RAM it’s possible to use. The maximum supported memory size on a 32bit OS will work best with a maximum of 4GB RAM. If more memory is required it may need an upgrade to a 64bit OS.
- Architecture – This can affect overall performance and downtime. If there is a lot of traffic, it may require a separate database server to accommodate this and achieve optimal performance.
- Network – This must be quick enough and big enough to manage expected traffic and the architecture put in place.
- Optimisation – Ensuring the system is working at its best can speed up performance and reduce expenditure on hardware.
The ideal type of Database hosting
A dedicated database server is ideal for high traffic and database intensive websites. If you’re planning on using vBulletin/XenForo forums or high transaction Magento stores then we can specify database server hosting to meet you needs.
