Your customers are in Israel and abroad? You maintain a high traffic site? We have a solution for you that will blow your mind: The International Cluster.
International traffic in Israel costs about three times as much as in Europe. But hosting abroad only makes it harder for Israeli customers to reach your site, especially in the evening, when international uplinks in Israel are saturated. Traffic inside Israel on the other hand is up to five times cheaper than international traffic in Europe.
Here is the solution. Just like a CDN, we will announce your IP address in Israel and abroad in the same time. Your customers will always reach the server that is nearest to them. Your benefit: Higher speed, cheaper bandwith, better surfing experience, built in redundancy.
This solution requires a lot of know-how in the setup of the servers, but don't worry, we will be there to help. The international cluster service comes with connectivity and rackspace in Israel and Europe and also with a VPN between the sites for cluster syncing and maintenance.
The setup is easiest and most effective to implemet for static content like images, video and more. But you can also use it for audio and video streaming, both on demand and life (podcast, VoD, internet radio, etc.). As these are bandwith hungry applications, you can save a lot of money while still offering a superior service to your customers.
If you are using a CDN already and want to cut costs or if you were thinking about it, the International Cluster might be for you.
