Cloud Hosting

We choose the cloud platform that makes the most sense for you

Jazkarta is agnostic with respect to the choice of a cloud hosting platform - we choose what makes the most sense for each individual client and we don't resell or profit from our clients' hosting contracts. We have experience with many cloud technologies, dating back to 2008 when we moved our website to Amazon's cloud computing infrastructure. Called Amazon Web Services (AWS), this infrastructure provides a suite of IT services that allow you to requisition the power of Amazon's computing and storage resources. In the years since, we have worked with many cloud platforms, including  Rackspace, Linode,  Google App Engine and  of course Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).


No matter the platform, there are many benefits to hosting your site in the cloud:

  • Seamless disaster recovery with repeatable deployments
  • Easily create and destroy isolated staging and testing servers that are cloned from production
  • Pay-for-what-you-use metered pricing
  • Launch new clients during peak periods and shut them down when no longer needed
  • Reduce bandwidth and load time for static assets

Jazkarta can help you deploy your application or website to the cloud as part of a consulting engagement or support plan. For Django web applications our clients often prefer the simplicity of Heroku, with its easy deployment of Python relational database applications via the git distributed version control system. For deployments of large, complex, or high availability websites our clients are often best served by Amazon's Opsworks application management service, which offeres greater flexibility and control.
