Pantheon Cloud Hosting
We are Pantheon partners. Pantheon is a specialist cloud hosting provider for Drupal websites, and are very good at managing traffic spikes. We are Pantheon agency partners and host multiple client websites with them.
Advantages include :
- Development, Test & Live site worflow, allowing each development change to be tested rigorously
- Version control with Git, allowing you to roll back specific changes if necessary and less downtime when updating a live site
- Allows super fast security updates
- Advanced caching - Varnish and Redis are built into the platform to provide high-speed edge caching and robust application caching.
- Backup & Retention - Automatic daily and weekly backups of your websites, stored in redundant offsite locations.
- Security - Denial of Service protection, PCI compliance & Network Intrusion Protection
Performance is vastly better than competing hosting providers. With most hosting providers, you run the risk of downtime when traffic spikes or other sites hog shared resources. On Pantheon, you can scale to millions of pageviews without affecting performance. The platform’s container-based infrastructure makes it far more reliable than VMs or clusters.
