eZ Systems’ new eZ Publish 4.2 is an ideal fit for even the most complex cluster hosting environments. To help you explore all the exciting possibilities this release has to offer, there is no one better than WebDeal, the world’s leading eZ Publish hosting provider.
eZ Publish 4.2 comes with important improvements and new features, including Edge Side Include (ESI) support and a new Network File System (NFS) Cluster system. eZ’s NFS Cluster system opens the doors to native deployment of eZ Publish on several servers using a shared file system, improving both performance and reliability, and simplifying setup and deployment. WebDeal gives you the added benefits of using other distributed file systems such as OCFS, GFS and GPFS, making your eZ Publish setup more resilient, scalable and reliable.
“The clear advantage of eZ Publish 4.2 from our point of view, is the support for distributed file systems. Closely integrated support for distributed file systems in the eZ Publish kernel will make it much easier and more cost effective for us to build high capacity cluster solutions for our customers. This release makes it easier for us to build tailor made distributed file systems with eZ Publish on top, where we can optimize service stability, availability, capacity and performance based on our customers requirements” says Morten Tvenge, Chief Technology Officer at WebDeal.
With its new features, cluster-ready eZ Publish 4.2 offers huge advantages for high-availability setups -- if backed by the right hosting provider. WebDeal is one of the few hosting companies in the market able to offer real knowledge of cluster and cloud hosting, combined with leading expertise on the application layer and extended support on the all levels of the hosting stack, with the help of valuable partners such as IBM and Coyote Point. And, most importantly, we are never afraid of taking on new challenges with increasingly complex cluster solutions!
Johann Yoon, eZ Systems' Country Manager in Norway says “WebDeal has proven to adapt in technology following eZ Systemś release-heartbeats. For the 4.2 version released in September, WebDeal is able to offer cluster-setups and supporting high-traffic and complex solutions. Additionally, the option for 24/7/365 technical support on the hosting stack gives WebDeal the status as a preferred hosting partner for enterprise customers running on eZ Publish”.

With WebDeal’s technical excellence and technology partners, the process of growing from a Shared Premium eZ Publish hosting solution to a full-fledged cluster environment is as smooth as it gets and completely free from needless interruptions to the service or holes in your company budget.
