Managed Services for Web Hosting
Fulcrum has been helping companies with their big data goals through the deployment of managed services on our Anvil™ platform. The Anvil platform combines scalable, secure, and reliable cloud infrastructure with best-in-class managed services. Anvil can be run on Amazon Web Services or on our own OpenStack platform, the leading open source private cloud platform, offering technologies ranging from server virtualization, database servers, and Hadoop big data services, to Docker containers, Kubernetes, micro services, and GPU processing. Fulcrum undergoes a yearly SOC-2 Type II audit and client environments are built to the highest standard of security and adhere to PCI and HIPAA standards.
Fulcrum Anvil is built for hosting web applications
The Anvil cloud platform is home to e-commerce web applications for Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies. These high transaction applications run within Fulcrum’s 99.99% uptime SLA. Web applications hosted on the Anvil platform are architected for high availability resilience, scalability, and performance. These highly visible and high transaction applications run within Fulcrum’s 99.99% uptime Service Level Agreement. Fulcrum also offers Piwik Pro and Matomo Analytics as a web analytics platform options to track site visits and user interactions to determine conversion rates and measure the efficacy of marketing campaigns and website design.
Fulcrum Anvil is managed by experts
Anvil managed services are operated by network and system administrators with decades of experience and expertise, as well as certifications and accreditations, in virtual technology, networking, and security. The platform, which scales to terabytes of RAM, petabytes of storage and thousands of vCPU is monitored 24/7/365 by Operations and Infrastructure teams. Hosting on AWS scales, infinitely. Fulcrum employs two tiers of monitoring. Monitoring is primarily done at the host level, to ensure that machines and services responsible for keeping the platform and applications operational are running as expected. The second tier of monitoring is done with third-party web monitoring from testing sites around the world, utilizing custom scripts to test complex interactions with websites. These checks not only verify that applications are running, but ensure that they are able to complete complex transactions they’re meant to serve. In its AWS instances, Fulcrum maintains a semi-annual SOC audit review and provides 24/7/365 monitoring and support services.
