A well-architected application hosting environment to manage security, DevOps, and efficiency
Application hosting allows businesses to run their applications in the cloud hosted by a service provider. To host an application on standalone EC2 instances, an Administrator or DevOps engineer is needed to manage the application and all the underlying components such as Operating System, application versions, logging, and 24/7 monitoring of the application. High availability, scalability, platform security, and end-to-end encryption are additional key components.
Ibexlabs Application Hosting Accelerator (AHA) is a flexible, highly automated solution to address these issues with a well-architected cloud environment that can be created in minutes. AHA uses AWS Elastic Beanstalk to provide flexibility and on-demand scalability for web applications.
Create identical environments by spanning the application over multiple availability zones.
Leverage auto-scaling to meet changing demands for compute power and data.
Reduce manual interventions with automatic patching and upgrades to platform code.
Central Logging and Monitoring
Logging and monitoring of your application is made easy through easy integration with logging tools.

About this consultant
How it works
The Ibexlabs Application Hosting Accelerator (AHA) creates well-architected cloud environments—following AWS best practices—that are deployed using AWS Elastic Beanstalk. One advantage of using AWS Elastic Beanstalk is that users can control the AWS resources that run behind the application. Once the code is deployed, the details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, scaling, and application health monitoring are handled automatically.
Key benefits include:
- High availability – includes the ability to create identical environments that are highly available by spanning the application over multiple availability zones
- Exceptional scalability – the hosting accelerator leverages auto-scaling to meet changing demands for compute power and data
- Automatic patching and upgrades of platform code reduce manual interventions
- Compatible with any AWS supported language (Go, Java, Node.js, PHP, Python, Ruby)
- Use any AWS supported server platform such as Tomcat, Passenger, Puma, and Docker containers.
Other unique capabilities:
Ibexlabs AHA is specifically well suited to manage data used by hosted applications. For example, it supports the launch of different types of databases such as MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, OracleSQL, Amazon Aurora, and MS SQL with Multi-AZ for high availability. Further, it uses read replicas for high performance in a private network protected by firewalls.
AHA also supports integration with third-party tools such as Datadog and New Relic for application and infrastructure logging and monitoring. It enables data at-rest and data in-transit encryption that make the application hosting safe and reliable. The application endpoints are protected by AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF). The product receives constant support to make infrastructure up to date with security and AWS features and it satisfies industry-standard compliances such as PCI, NIST, and Hi-Trust.
