High availability servers built on VMware® and fully managed 24/7 by a team of certified engineers
Recommended for high traffic or mission critical WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and Magento sites
Built on Rochen's wholly owned VMware® infrastructure, Managed Cloud Servers (MCS) provide a private and customizable application hosting stack that is fully managed and scalable with built in high availability for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and Magento sites.
Scale to handle tens of millions of monthly page views. Start with any config and scale as needed.
Built in at the hosting level to ensure no changes are needed to your WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or Magento install.
Your own systems administration team. No more worrying about PHP or MySQL configurations.
Continually monitored and supported 24/7. An easy start with Launch Assistance.
Rochen’s Managed Cloud Servers (MCS) can scale to handle tens of millions of monthly page views. With three ways to scale and hourly billing, performance of sites can be ensured even under heavy traffic volumes.
Resources can be scaled at anytime with our easy to use interface within the My Rochen portal. Scale vCPUs, RAM and SAN storage completely independently of each other.
Create automatic scaling rules to handle unexpected traffic spikes. When a specific event occurs (e.g. CPU usage over 80%) then an action occurs (e.g. upgrade in 1 vCPU increments to a maximum of 24 vCPUs).
Scale up resources at a specific date and time. For example, a marketing campaign is launching at 9am on Monday morning then resources can be scaled in advance. E.g. at 2am on Monday upgrade by 32GB RAM.
|CPU (per 1 vCPU):|
|RAM (per 1GB):|
|SAN storage (per 10GB):|
High availability is built into each Managed Cloud Server (MCS) at the hosting level. Development costs and deployment times for sites can be reduced, since code changes to WordPress, Drupal, Joomla or Magento aren't required to achieve high availability.
Each MCS is a high availability VMware® virtual machine. In the event of an underlying physical server failure, an impacted MCS will transfer automatically using vMotion® to a hot standby server. Handling high availability at the virtualization layer means that it is transparent to applications ensuring that messy code changes are not required and setting up sites is easy. Rochen’s SLA guarantees any server transfer will occur within 5 minutes.
All layers within Rochen’s network are fully redundant. All servers, storage appliances and other devices are served by redundant 10GBps/sec uplinks to separate and diverse access switches. All access switches are uplinked using fiber optics to separate diverse core switches. Each data center facility has multiple 10GBps/sec connections to the internet via diverse bandwidth providers with separate building entry points. Rochen’s SLA guarantees 100% network uptime.
Each physical device used to deliver the MCS service takes advantage of a 2N+1 power architecture using redundant Power Supply Units (PSUs) served from separate Power Distribution Units (PDUs). PDUs in a stack are served by multiple Uninterruptible Power Sources (UPS). Each facility has redundant Computer Room Air Conditioning (CRAC) units and is SSAE-70 Type II or ISO 9001, 14001 and 27001 audited. Rochen’s SLA guarantees 100% power uptime.
Rochen provides full server management taking the pressure off your development and other business resources. Think of us as your own systems administrators and application hosting experts working alongside your team to keep your hosting environment secure and operating with optimal performance.
Rochen monitor all key services (e.g. web server and database server) as well as resource usage on a 24/7 basis. A site check monitor can also be configured to ensure a site returns a defined keyword. If any alerts are triggered then Rochen will proactively respond without the customer having to contact us.
All data is backed up daily (or on the customer's own custom schedule) with up to 30 restore points. An entire MCS or individual sites can be easily restored. Granular restores down to individual files and databases is possible.
Security hardened VMware ESXi virtualization layer ensures full isolation from other customers. Fully managed by Rochen.
Rochen takes care of all OS management. Cloud Linux or CentOS, KSplice Kernel management, IP firewall and Web Application Firewall (WAF) configuration and ongoing maintenance.
Rochen will optimally setup and performance tune the MySQL database server as required for sites usage. This includes cache configuration and ongoing maintenance.
Using either Apache or LiteSpeed Enterprise, the web server is fully configured and managed by Rochen. Including PHP (5.3 to 7.0), opocode caching (APC), Memcached, Solr etc. Flexible configuration and ongoing maintenance.
WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Magento or other PHP application install. The only bit you need to worry about managing or Rochen can refer you to a application support partner to help.
We want to ensure getting up and running with a Managed Cloud Server (MCS) at Rochen is as seamless and painless as possible. Managed onboarding, custom stack optimization and assisted site migration all come included.
Managed Cloud Servers (MCS) can generally be deployed with Rochen's "base image" in less than an hour. WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and Magento will run "out of the box".
An onboarding call will be scheduled with a named Senior Systems Engineer (SSE). Any of your stakeholders, such as developers, can be added to this call. Rochen can then arrange for appropriate stack optimizations to be made to the MCS "base image" and managed services can be configured as well. Rochen's goal is not only to ensure that WordPress, Drupal, Joomla or Magento sites work but that best practices are used so they load fast, are deployed securely and can scale as your traffic grows.
Rochen can optimize the software stack for your specific use case. Including but not limited to optimizations for:
Rochen can configure other appropriate services. Including:
If your site is already hosted elsewhere then Rochen can help migrate it over to your new MCS at no additional cost. You will be able to conduct testing to ensure everything is working as expected prior to cutting over your live DNS to Rochen.
Rochen's team continues to be available to you 24/7 to assist with any hosting related matters. Think of us at an extension of your own team.
Rochen understands that operating highly redundant data centers can have an impact on the environment. This is why we have partnered with Green Mountain Energy, the leading provider of cleaner energy and carbon offsetting solutions, to purchase carbon credits to offset the emissions of our hosting operations.View Green Mountain Energy Certificate
Common questions we receive about Managed Cloud Servers (MCS).
A single MCS can scale to 32 vCPUs, 156GB DDR4 RAM and almost limitless SAN storage. vCPUs, RAM and storage can all be scaled independently of each other.
Rochen has data center locations in Dallas, TX, United States and London, United Kingdom. Rochen owns, instead of leasing, all of our servers and infrastructure.
Each MCS is a VMware Virtual Machine running on top of a fully redundant physical stack. In the event of a server failure an MCS will restart automatically on backup standby hardware.
Yes, both WP-CLI and Drush are pre-installed on each MCS. They are ready to use.
Yes, Rochen can provide various license types for LiteSpeed as an addon. Please see the "Tech Specs" section of this page for pricing.
Yes, Rochen can provide a license for CloudLinux as an addon. Please see the "Tech Specs" section of this page for pricing.
With an MCS you have your own server. Rochen can configure PHP however a client may need, including version and directives like memory_limit.
Yes, each MCS includes a license for both cPanel and Web Host Manager (WHM). cPanel and WHM are pre-installed and configured.
Yes, all you will need to look after is your application install itself. Rochen takes care of everything at the server level. For example, if you need a new PHP module configured or MySQL updated our expert team can take care of it for you.
Yes, both Git and SVN are available. Many clients use their MCS in conjunction with a repository service.
Yes, each site (or account) you create will have its own SFTP and SSH login.
Yes, you can create separate accounts on the server for each. Many clients then link these accounts to a Git repository service for version control purposes.
Billing is handled month-to-month and you may cancel at anytime. We also offer a 30 day money back guarantee.
We accept payment by Visa, MasterCard and American Express. For larger accounts we may be able to accept advance payment by bank transfer. Please contact us for further details.
