“I want to learn more about the powerful management tools available in Hybrid Web Cluster”
Hybrid Web Cluster offers a powerful, yet easy-to-use web hosting control panel
At the core of Hybrid Web Cluster is a web hosting control panel responsible for adding sites and databases, managing e-mail settings, automatic installation of common applications such as WordPress. The control panel offers a single point of access allowing you to make configuration changes affecting the whole cluster in what appears to be one centralised location (of course the control panel is resistant to failure as any website hosted on the cluster would be). The Hybrid Web Cluster control panel offers all of the features you would expect in a modern web hosting control panel, and its innovative, simple user interface allows even novices to set up and administer their own websites in an intuitive and well thought-out way. You are offered all the flexibility you need, without being blinded by endless confusing options.
The control panel provided by Hybrid Web Cluster feels familiar to anyone who may have used shared hosting in the past, and in fact many of those using it may not even be aware of the clever technology working behind the scenes to keep their website online and responsive every hour of the day.
Behind the simple web hosting control panel lie a powerful set of tools for visualising the state of the cluster
Although Hybrid Web Cluster is almost completely self-managing, it is still useful and interesting to be able to see what’s going on in the cluster, live, as it happens. Within the cluster administration control panel, a powerful set of visual representations of the cluster allow you to see which servers are hosting which websites, how much load each individual node or website is experiencing at any given time, as well as allowing you to actually watch as websites are sitejuggled around the cluster.
These same tools allow you to make configuration changes to the global state of the cluster. For example, an important variable you can configure is the redundancy invariant – this number sets how many machines should hold a hot spare of each website or database. The redundancy invariant is a trade-off between total available disk space against fault-tolerance, the more fault tolerance you have, the less total disk space you get. By default we set the redundancy invariant to 2, meaning each website will always be stored on at least two servers, this gives the maximum amount of disk space and the minimum level of fault tolerance, but it still means if an entire server goes down you don’t lose any data.
Hybrid Web Cluster also offers a powerful reseller control panel
The reseller control panel is responsible for the administration of user accounts, the allocation of resources and various tools for managing web hosting users or customers.
