Industrial Web Hosting Environment

Designed and implemented Forthnet's first industrial hosting environment allowing for shared web-hosting services to be productized and successfully mass marketed. The environment enabled strong growth of the new shared-hosting product family, growing from barely hundreds, to thousands of customers in a matter of months. This resulted in significant revenue generation with thousands of commercial websites hosted on the platform and contributed to the general growth and success of the hosting services BU.

The standardized environment was the first to introduce horizontal scale-out architecture incorporating the use of multiple web-tier nodes as a single web server farm, front-end load balancing and distributed file systems, and was at the time among the first services providing true "five nine availability" (99.999%) delivering content from thousands of customer websites day-in day-out for over a decade.
