Not many web hosting providers offer solutions that meet everyone’s requirements. Using the OpenStack platform made available by Rackspace and hosted in either Sydney or Texas, complete custom web hosting solutions can be built to fit any requirements. I run the latest versions of all common (and not so common) open source web packages on top of the Linux distribution Debian 6/7. These packages include the following and more:
- Linux OSs such as Debian 7 and CentOS
- Apache/ Nginx
- MySQL, MariaDB, Postgresql
All systems are configured using server configuration and management tools, systems can be built to be robust and secure and easily reproducible. Backup solutions can be made to suit any requirements.
