Multi-Zoned MySQL Database Servers

Multi-Zoned MySQL Database Servers

All through 2012, we are working hard to continuously rollout new Nerds Hosting features, and today we are proud to announce our new MySQL database service. is built on Amazon’s RDS service, which gives our clients a whole new level of reliability, speed and backup for database. Just about every new website today requires a database service, and up until now we have been using our own internal, single-instance mysql database service. Starting today all clients can use as their database host, and can still mange it directly through their control panel, including phpmyadmin. is hosted on Amazon’s cloud RDS platform, and it is a geographically redundant service with 4 levels of backup. The first level of backup is it’s geographical mirror. The second level of backup is a regular Amazon snapshot. The third level of backup is a nightly snapshot of the database system to our shared hosting system in Toronto, followed up by the fourth level of backup with is a copy sent to our ‘ark’ server in Singapore.
We have been testing the new database server for 3 months now with a select group of clients, and it has performed perfectly. All new clients will now be automatically setup to use it, and we will slowly work over time to migrate all existing clients to it as well.
The best part of this new service is that we have added it with no additional fees – it’s included with every Nerds On Site hosting account!  Contact our team today to learn how this new multi-zoned database system can help your business!
