What is Hot Standby?
Hot Standby is a failover protection service offered by HEAnet.
This service provides reassurance – if a website goes offline, Hot Standby can step in to display whatever is required.
- Service Profile SLA
Hot Standby can be utilised for any kind of client website – from minor websites to major institution home pages.
This service has been specifically engineered by HEAnet for rapid and reliable failover interventions.
Specially Designed for HEAnet Clients
It is often the case that commercial failover services cannot offer the kind of versatility that HEAnet client websites often require.
There is no charge to HEAnet clients for the use of Hot Standby making it an economical and effective choice for institutions. All data related to the Hot Standby service is securely stored only in Ireland – at HEAnet’s established data locations.
Hot Standby can deliver the complete solution – total redundancy, where a completely up-to-date, mirrored copy of a website (as hosted by the client) is failed-over to. This option delivers complete functionality, with no loss of content or indication that any failover has occurred.
Support for Hot Standby is provided through the HEAnet NOC.
You can contact the HEAnet NOC by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01-660-9040, Monday to Friday, 09:00 – 17:30.
