The Server Layer
We start with a clean server image from one of our 15+ supported cloud providers, integrating directly with their API. Once we've spun up a virtual machine, we install the stack and any supporting software needed by the application.
The steps may vary depending upon the stack the application requires. For example, our LAMP application installation performs installations of Apache, PHP and MySQL. But across the board, the operating system, server software and underlying application stack are all scripted and automated for best practice configurations, and optimized for application performance.
