Your web servers stay online even when your hardware goes offline.

Micron21’s hyperconverged clusters utilizes VMWare’s powerful technology to provide highly available compute and storage to your mission-critical applications.

Redundant Storage

Your disks are stored in a virtual RAID1 configuration, so should a physical disk suffer an issue, your data remains available.

Redundant Compute

If the case of a host failure, your VM will be started on a different server in the cluster.

Redundant Networking

All of our hosts are connected to multiple 10gbit switches, so should a physical switch fail your VM will continue to operate as normal.

Fast Storage

Utilizing both SSD/HDD Hybris clusters, and full NVMe SSD clusters, you can expect great performance from your virtual server.

Latest Hardware

Micron21’s hyperconverged clusters use the latest Dell servers, ensuring speed and performance across the platform.

Hands-off Infrastructure

Leave the infrastructure to us, and use your time more efficiently to focus on growing your business.

Hyperconverged Infrastructure Explained

This video from our Hyperconverged software partner VMWare goes over some of the benefits of hyperconvergence over
traditional server and storage setups.

In our Hyperconverged cluster, all critical datacentre functions run on a tightly integrated software layer, as opposed to purpose-built hardware. The result is that your environment is not dependant on a single host or point of failure. Three software components make up a hyperconverged platform: storage virtualization, compute virtualization, and management.

Software pools the underlying resources, then dynamically allocates them to applications running in VMs.

Move to Micron21’s Hyperconverged cluster

Micron21 has taken multiple mature standalone servers and successfully integrated them into our Hyperconverged cluster. From Telco providers, to web hosting companies, there is no challenge too big. Some advantages of making the move include:

  • More time to focus on your business – Leave the infrastructure to us, and use your time more efficiently to focus on growing your business.
  • Scalable resources – No more compromising on speed to avoid buying more hardware, we can scale your resources to grow with your business.
  • High availability – In a standalone environment, a dead server could see your entire business offline while waiting for warranties or repairs to come through. Our hyperconverged environment protects you and your business from hardware failure.

Our Hyperconverged services

Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) is only available on VMware environments and is built into the following platforms at Micron21:

  • Shared Web Hosting (SWH): All our mainstream website hosting plans are underpinned by VMware HCI. This provides a robust and redundant server environment by comparison to our competitors.
  • VMware Cloud Servers (VCS): These are your own virtual private servers delivered on top of VMware while running on the latest generation of Dell hardware and NVMe technology.
  • Virtual Data Centre (VDC): This is an extension of the VCS platform where you require multiple virtual machines and hence receive a better price for each resource.
  • Colocation (COLO): In addition to running virtual servers, Micron21 has a unique offering for colocation customers. By contributing a compatible host, you automatically receive the benefits of a cluster without purchasing multiple servers yourself. Our server farms have a minimum of three hosts with sufficient overhead to balance load in the event a single host fails, and our larger clusters can cater for multiple offline servers. You also receive the added benefit that hardware maintenance can now be carried out while your virtual machines stay online.
