What is Windows Hybrid Hosting?
No two sites or applications are alike. Whether you operate from a single site, have multiple applications or anything in between, you’re well aware that your managed hosting demands are unique to the product or service that you offer. Our Windows Hybrid Hosting solution is different for everyone, and consists of utilizing the various strengths of both Windows Cloud Servers and Windows Dedicated Servers to create a customized hosting platform for your individual needs.
Do I Need Windows Hybrid Hosting?
Maybe your application has an IO intensive database backend. While a Windows Cloud Server will support this, our team would likely construct a dedicated SQL Server backend with the front-end nodes on cloud servers. This scenario still gives the client complete control over how the storage is partitioned and the type of RAID used. The result is a highly available, ready-to-scale Hybrid solution that cuts down on cost and optimizes efficiency.

If anyone ever tells you there’s a one-size-fits-all hosting solution, you should look elsewhere. Whether due to hardware or specialized configuration requirements specific to your application, and a number of other variables, our architecture team will determine the hosting configuration that will best serve your site or application.
Basic Hybrid Hosting Configuration
The below configuration is just one great example of what Windows hybrid hosting can look like. While your database server often runs better on a dedicated server, a web server and development/management are both ideal candidates for a Windows cloud server.
