Ambient offer two solutions in one: a way to eliminate the risk of downtime and getting your web data backup needs managed. Imagine a server that can’t break down. We’ve done what we can to make that a reality, by adding in robust back up systems. We believe you will only get excellent results if you take the time to do the job properly. That’s why we offer a separate server to process your data, and specialist hard drives to store it. If a processing server breaks, we have a redundancy option standing right by. We’ll immediately reboot your processing capability onto the spare server.
With our 100Mbps high-speed connection, your server will always perform at its best, no matter what demands are placed on it. Unless your office has a 100Mbps fibre to the premises connection, you’re in a whole different league, speed-wise.

Just as we keep a managed server providing your processing power, we store your data on separate hard drives renowned for their storage capabilities. Our N+1 SAN Storage array gives excellent onsite storage for your business critical data, with a layer of resilience in-built to offer extra security.

But we don’t stop there. Ambient Hosting also offers you full back up at a separate location. Our SAN replication system automatically backs up your data from the primary SAN to the secondary SAN which is housed off-site. It means we can provide powerful disaster recovery capabilities for business critical applications and data. This system ensures near-instant recovery after system failure for full data protection. Everything will be rolled back and restored onto your server environment for you, so you don’t have to worry.

How It Works

1: Primary and Secondary Server
Whatever type of environment you require, Linux or Windows the operational software runs on a server independent of where data (email, websites, PC backups) is stored. Running an exact copy of the server, a secondary system remains in the background, ready to step in, should the primary hardware experience problems. In the event of the main server failing, the system will reboot and automatically switch to the secondary hardware.

2: Storage Area Network (SAN)
Storing data onto a single hard disk can result in a loss of all data should it fail. Storage Area Networks store data across a range of devices simaltaneously. With information spread across many pieces of hardware, should one of them fail, the remaining devices contain all the data stored and can continue to make it available to users until the failing disk is replaced.

3: Off Site Backup
Our SAN replication system automatically backs up your data from the primary SAN to the secondary SAN which is housed off-site. It means we can provide powerful disaster recovery capabilities for business critical applications and data. This system ensures near-instant recovery after system failure for full data protection. Everything will be rolled back and restored onto your server environment for you, so you don’t have to worry.
