Cloud Cache

Posted mayo 2nd, 2011 in Uncategorized and tagged by admin

The CloudCache Alternative:

CloudCache is a new service yet in beta that we plan to public release on March 2011. Basically it’s a cloud service for web cache with a system of pay as you go.

The main objectives of the service is to allow companies to prevent traffic spikes due to good press from degrading their visitors user experience.
Other good features it provides are: reducing real server load to a tenth, adding a layer of security, and guarantee response times of less than 600ms even under traffic spikes.
Besides this, it’s completely transparent to the real web server in the back, it does not require any kind of access to the web servers of our customers, customers only need to change an IP in their DNS and they are all set.

Currently it’s on Beta stage and we have only a few customers using it who between all of them we are providing around three million page views per day.
This depending on the rate of page per visitor of each of their sites would result in between 500k and a million visits per day.

Our service rates are based in total transfer bandwidth required for the cache service therefore it’s impossible for us to guess how much bandwidth would require a site for 500k visits per day. We have checked other customers numbers and we have found sites with 500k visits range between 4TB and 10TB depending on the type of content, cache rules and site content optimization.

The main advantage in using CloudCache vs self hosting infrastructure is that we currently have already a high availability setup inside OVH France datacenter and as we grow and add more servers to the cloud we plan to be able to support high availability in different datacenters/continents without meaning any extra costs to our users.

The only disadvantage versus self hosting is that you don’t own the cache technology and therefore you will have to rely on us for
caching. The good news is that you still own your technology and our cache service does not require from you to provide any¬† access to your server. Our service it’s completely transparent and does not require any kind of special access to your websites technology. If you don’t want to work with us anymore or you can’t rely on us anymore, you just change your IP in your DNS and you don’t need us anymore.

In case you are interested in became user of our service we would recommend you to just use current available plans until you reach a monthly transfer of more than 5TB for three consecutive months, in which case we would agree to provide a special reduced price for you.

Current CloudCache Plans based on monthly total bandwidth:
Disk Quota Price
50GB 15USD. Extra 10GB would cost 3.00USD
50GB 15USD. Extra 10GB would cost 3.00USD
250GB 50USD. Extra 10GB would cost 2.00USD
1000GB 100USD. Extra 10GB would cost 1.50USD
2000GB 150USD. Extra 10GB would cost 1.00USD
5000GB 250USD. Extra 10GB would cost 0.50USD

Please keep this rates confidential, as the service it’s not public we really would like to keep a low profile in the market. We reserve the right to change those rates between today and the release day. In any case we will honor the prices gave on this quote.
