Platform As A Service (PAAS)
Webcoda provides hosting on the Microsoft Azure platform in their Sydney Data Centre using the PAAS architecture. https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/
Our standard server configuration is the Azure plan P2V3 but on a dedicated environment this can be tailored.
Additional storage can be purchased on both shared and dedicated plans.
Why PAAS and not Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS)?
Traditionally most websites have been hosted in IAAS which is just a confusing way of saying your virtual server runs on an ISPs servers. With PAAS, there is no traditional server but a set of tools provided by Microsoft to manage your site which are continuously being improved and expanded. The improvements are so regular you can almost see an improvement each time you log in.
Tasks such as scaling up (even temporarily for a big campaign) can be done in a few clicks.
With PAAS, all patching is handled my Microsoft in the background, so your hosting environment is always up to date. Note that patching of your site / CMS is handled by Webcoda and is not part of PAAS.
Use the new Security Centre tool to insure your environment meets security compliance standards.
Shared or dedicated
Webcoda offer 2 PAAS options, both of which have the same configuration except one is shared and the other is dedicated. Our Shared PAAS hosts approximately 40 sites with monitoring to make sure no site impacts any other.
While dedicated PAAS hosting completely removes any possibility of your site being impacted by other sites on the same instance, shared hosting offers the same level of security but at a lower price point.
