High Availability Clustered Hosting is a type of web hosting that spreads the load of hosting across multiple physical machines (“nodes”), increasing availability and decreasing the chances of one service (such as: FTP or email) affecting another (such as: MySQL).
Many large websites run on clustered hosting solutions, for example, large discussion forums will tend to run using multiple front-end webservers with multiple back-end database servers.
Typically, most hosting infrastructures are based on the paradigm of using a single physical machine to host multiple hosted services, including web, database, email, FTP and others.
A single physical machine is not only a single point of failure, but also has finite capacity for traffic, that in practice can be troublesome for a busy website or for a website that is experiencing transient bursts in traffic.
This is typical of most hosting service providers, and are the reason your website “drags” or “comes up slow”. These symptoms can occur frequently or sporadically, but can be cured by moving to a clustered environment.
