Managed Load Balancing
Load Balancing Services for Both Hardware and Virtual Appliances
Our load balancing services balance load across multiple servers or VMs, thus providing you with the scalability to grow your site or application well past a level that even the most powerful server or VM can serve. Add next to limitless scalability, boost throughput, and improve response time by handling SSL offloading, caching, and compression at the load balancer hardware level. All of our solutions use industry-leading load-balancing platforms, backed by 24x7x365 support from our fully-trained, certified engineers within our enterprise-grade data centers nationwide
Rapid spikes in online traffic can challenge even the best web sites and applications. Also, today’s content-rich web applications often require more processing power than a single server can provide. SSL-based transactions, high server load, and interface throughput can cause response times to drag and servers to bog down. So while everything may look good on the server side, your network could be slowing to a crawl on the user side – making a mockery of your high-dollar web investment. Load balancing offers an efficient solution to take some of the load off your servers and applications, while intelligently distributing most of the load across multiple servers, making it as easy as the push of a button to add additional capability through adding additional servers or VMs to the load balanced pool.
Cloud load balancers, for example, manage online traffic by distributing workloads across multiple VMs and resources – automatically or on-demand. In addition, cloud VMs can be configured to automatically scale up and down, based on the load requirements. Cloud load balancers maximize your workload performance and help prevent overload to help give your users a seamless experience.
Benefits of Load Balancing Using a Hardware Load Balancers
- Intelligent Load Balancing, with built-in high-availability as well as sub-second failover for application, database, web, and storage related server farms.
- Built-in or complimentary security (IDS, firewalls and DDoS protection) significantly improve the security and reduce the chance of cyber-attacks causing a service disruption.
- Hardware acceleration and SSL offloading enable your servers to do what they do best and serve more content to more users.
Benefits of Load Balancing on Virtual Load Balancers (in Cloud)
- Virtual IP (VIP) Addressing
Each load balancer is assigned an IP address that remains static while the load balancer is in use.
- Supports SSL Termination
Supports encryption and decryption, and provides HTTP to HTTPS redirect to help secure transactions.
- Built-in High Availability
One load balancer is all you need for high availability, due to the built-in HA (high availability) in the cloud platform.
Managed Vulnerability Scans
Assessing the Security of your Network
Our vulnerability scans use a powerful network security assessment tool for finding potential security risks and flaws, and potential compliance issues, either inherent to the operating system or created from mis-configurations. We value your server and network security, so we offer all our dedicated and managed service customers one complimentary systems-wide scan per month.
Vulnerabilities emerge every day within new networks, web applications, and databases. They may occur due to software defects or misconfiguration of complex and highly inter-dependent systems. Because such vulnerabilities can be exploited by cyber attackers, it is essential to eliminate these exposures to protect your critical IT assets and safeguard sensitive information.
Provided as an on-demand service, our vulnerability scanning provides world-class vulnerability management without the hardware, software, and maintenance requirements of most scanning products. This security tool reports on thousands of updated vulnerabilities by performing a complete scan. After a scan is completed, a report is generated that lists possible vulnerabilities found in your systems. We offer these vulnerability scans as a subscription service, where scans are run on a bi-weekly, or other user configured, basis.
Benefits of Managed Vulnerability Scans
- Identify the real, exploitable vulnerabilities
- Satisfy regulatory compliance requirements
- Provide your systems administration team with regularly vulnerability reports
- Track remediation workflow easily
- Access our information security experts 24x7x365

Fast, Smart, Affordable Managed Server Backup
At HopOne, we’ve got your back — with advanced managed remote backup services powered by R1Soft®. We protect your data with our managed backup services for your Linux or Windows servers using Continuous Data Protection (CDP) technology, which means the latest version of your data is always protected. With managed backup by us, you will never fear server crashes or accidental data deletion (human error) again!
Technology research firm Gartner estimates that 65 percent of SMEs have no comprehensive disaster recovery plan in place. Another study completed by the University of Texas Center for Research on Information Systems, identified that more than 50 percent of companies that experience catastrophic data loss go out of business within two years. Backup is the service that is often thought about, but rarely acted on. Can you really afford to lose all of your enterprise’s data?
Our managed backup, powered by R1Soft®, is a unique real-time Continuous Data Protection service that keeps the back-up synced to your live data in real time, as opposed to only backing up at certain pre-configured intervals and thus always having your backups be out-of-date. It protects your hosted data by using replication and synchronization over the network storing point-in-time snapshots on the highly redundant back-up storage. The process ensures that your operating systems, applications, files, databases and other data are backed up in real time and thus always completely up-to-date and easy to restore (via bare-metal disaster recovery), especially in the case of a disaster.
Incremental backups (Continuous Data Protection) are done in real time at the block level instead of the file level. Block level backup provides several advantages including the speed of completing a backup operation, a drastic reduction in disk and network I/O, the ability to perform backups as often as every 15 minutes, and no performance penalty for servers having a large number of files.
Our managed backup services provide comprehensive 24x7x365 monitoring and management of your backup and recovery environment under strict SLAs, allowing you to focus on your core business priorities while retaining ownership of your backup technology. Meet internal and regulatory requirements at manageable costs.
