Enterprise Kentico Hosting - Ensuring Scalability & Performance Blog Post

 

What is Enterprise Kentico Hosting?

Web-dependent businesses choose enterprise-level hosting solutions to provide their brand with advanced capabilities and performance. Enterprise Kentico hosting provides the highest level of reliability, security, integration, service, and speed.

The confidence that high engagement websites are served by performant, enterprise-level hosting, is essential to modern business success. When digital demand peaks during planned events or unexpected surges, businesses can expect that enterprise Kentico hosting providers have thoroughly planned and resourced excellent user experiences without interruption or latency. 

Enterprise Kentico Hosting vs. Standard Hosting

Excellent enterprise Kentico cloud hosting options are available within the Microsoft Azure platform. There are also excellent, fully-managed, on-premises hosting options within server environments that are optimized for hosting ASP.NET Core applications.

Both the Kentico cloud hosting and on-prem enterprise hosting options provide advanced performance for high-traffic, high-engagement, high-impact digital solutions. Comparing both of these enterprise options to standard hosting agreements, businesses prefer enterprise hosting due to superior uptime guarantees, more server space, load management, resource planning, scalability, staging environments, compliance, redundancy, managed backups, enhanced security, and intrusion detection. 24/7/365 resource monitoring, customer success management, and professional support are also common differentiators that favor enterprise Kentico hosting providers.

A software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform product and hosting option is also available direct from Kentico. The subscription to Kentico SaaS can be a capable option for some business solutions.

Why Enterprise Kentico Hosting is for Large Businesses & High-Traffic Sites

Modern digital solutions are developed with sophisticated strategy, integration, and capabilities to advance business goals. The ultimate success of all the effort, planning, and execution put into launching a website is dependent upon its ability to reach intended audiences. That is where enterprise Kentico hosting is delivering brand experiences that businesses can rely on. Enterprise-level hosting services provide today’s businesses the confidence and peace-of-mind that digital solutions demand. Stability, speed, security, and speed are all hosting necessities for large business, high-traffic success.

Scalability for Peak Times

Once Kentico platform solutions are deployed within Americaneagle.com’s on-prem enterprise hosting, we conduct continual stress testing and load analysis. Virtual server clusters are scaled to match client demand, adding resources during high-traffic periods, whether they are planned or unplanned. Whether it has been significant traffic surges from a Super Bowl commercial or a presidential inauguration, our hosting scalability has dependably served our clients’ digital assets with excellence.

Americaneagle.com’s on-prem deployment also leverages the content delivery network (CDN) services of Cloudflare. Not only does this leading option in CDN improve reliability, performance, and security, it also caches static resource to optimize asset delivery and minimize the direct requests to on-prem servers. Efficiencies from CDN caching enable overall site performance at a higher scale.

Performance Optimization & Load Balancing

Performance tools should be monitoring and responding to server resource optimization within enterprise Kentico hosting solutions. Within on-prem hosting at Americaneagle.com, we monitor and optimize server performance 24/7/365. Mobile optimization for websites and applications includes server-side AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) tools that monitor performance, response times, errors, requests, third-party calls, and more. The performance optimizations of Cloudflare’s CDN caching have also proven to be extremely significant for Kentico clients.

Secure Kentico Hosting

Within enterprise Kentico hosting environments, advanced security measures are essential. On-prem hosting with Americaneagle.com includes physical location security, a host-based intrusion detection system (HIDS), anti-virus protection, bot and DDOS protection, PCI framework, web application firewalls, vulnerability scanning tools, security patch plan, security certificates, and monitored, tiered access to server resources.

Minimized Downtime Risks

Businesses should have a service level agreement (SLA) with their hosting provider that clearly indicates a guaranteed uptime percentage. The robust hosting infrastructure and support that should be expected from enterprise Kentico hosting options, both cloud-based and on-prem, minimizes the risks of website downtime to the point that guaranteed uptime should be nearly 100%.

Denial of Service Attack Prevention

A distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack aims to make a system or resource unavailable by flooding it with traffic. Preventing these malicious attacks is crucial for maintaining server and service availability. Americaneagle.com deploys advanced protection against network and layer-7 DDoS attacks that include proven techniques and capabilities within Cloudflare.

Intrusion Detection Systems

Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are tools used to monitor networks and systems for malicious activity and policy violations. On-prem hosting with Americaneagle.com includes a Suricata intrusion detection system that monitors the network for suspicious activity and sends real-time alerts to our network operations center. The IDS rules are automatically updated on a nightly basis through an automatic download system.

PCI Compliant Hosting Provider

On-prem enterprise Kentico hosting with Americaneagle.com includes an annual risk assessment as part of our Level 1 Visa/Mastercard PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliance program. This is the highest level of compliance. The PCI DSS (Data Security Standard) is a single security standard that is a comprehensive combination of the cardholder security programs from the five major credit card companies. The standard was created to protect customers from increasing identity theft and security breaches.

In 2007, Americaneagle.com became one of the first ten data centers in the world to achieve PCI compliance in managed hosting. We have continued to annually achieve PCI compliance ever since.  

Dev Ops & Automated Deployments

Automated deployment (auto deployment) provides the opportunity to quickly deliver customizations and other project changes to production server environments without disruption to the live environment, down time, or the need to manually merge configurations or databases. It involves the use of various tools and scripts to automate the steps involved in deploying software updates, reducing human error, and improving the efficiency and reliability of the deployment process. Auto deployment is particularly beneficial in agile and DevOps development environments, where continuous delivery and quick feedback loops are essential. It aligns with the principles of iterative development and allows enterprise hosting teams to respond rapidly to changing business requirements and user feedback.

Secure Staging & Development Environments

Well-designed staging and development environments are key for securely building and testing applications and changes to your website.

Enterprise Kentico hosting clients receive dedicated non-production environments, ensuring uninterrupted development processes, dedicated CPU and memory resources, and most importantly, a stable environment to launch and test changes before deploying to production websites.

Backup and Disaster Recovery Protocols

Backup plans provide seamless recovery from both cloud and on-prem enterprise Kentico hosting solutions.

Scheduled data center backups within Americaneagle.com include sister center data replication. The offsite replication’s recovery point objective is one hour or less in the event of complete destruction of the main data center.

Custom Configurations & Integrations

Hosting solutions are determined based on traffic, uptime and security requirements. Our virtual environments are scalable, providing as many virtual servers as needed. In addition to providing servers, we specialize in optimizing CDN caching to maximize cloud delivery while minimizing the impact on website servers.

Enhanced Site Performance

Enterprise Kentico hosting clients have access to application performance monitoring tools that allow for detailed diagnosis, performance monitoring, and optimization opportunities. Our experts are able to use these tools to fully maximize the performance of your website.

Compliance with Industry Standards

Americaneagle.com maintains a security policy based on PCI, ISO 27001, and NIST standards. We also have a set of documented server build and hardening standards based on Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmarks. This means that our systems are hardened based on industry best practices such as disabling of unnecessary services, removal of unnecessary software, resetting of default credentials, and having one primary function per server. Our compliance practices have made our Kentico enterprise hosting environment an ideal choice for highly regulated industries, like healthcare and financial services.

Long-Term Cost Efficiency

Our hosting solutions are flexible. We adjust the hosting assets based on your traffic and unique business needs. We offer individual resource upgrades without the hassle of pre-determined tiers that require you to upgrade all resources while only needing one. Our enterprise Kentico hosting allows clients to see their costs upfront for the resources to be utilized. This transparency eliminates the surprises that are common in other usage-based hosting options. Our temporary upgrades are available for up to one week, usually the duration of a high traffic event, after which we downgrade back to normal specifications.
