Get a 99.99% Uptime SLA with Pantheon’s New Multizone Failover

Ari Gold, Product Manager Reading estimate: 1 minutes

Today we’re happy to announce that Multizone Failover is available for Pantheon Elite sites. While we can’t prevent disasters from happening, Pantheon has architected a high-availability (HA) solution with intelligent failover at the Global CDN edge layer to keep mission critical websites online in the event of a complete datacenter outage. Multizone Failover is more than just technology— it includes onboarding, 24/7 support, and a guaranteed 99.99% uptime service level agreement (SLA).

Whether downtime for your company’s site means damage to your brand reputation or a direct revenue loss, Pantheon’s got your back.

Multizone Failover "The Pantheon Way”

We built Multizone Failover on top of the foundation laid with our move to Google Cloud and our platform’s edge upgrade to Global CDN, which leverages Fastly. Sites with Multizone Failover combine both best-in-class technology partners to keep a hot replica site ready to go in a backup datacenter at all times. Because of the sheer number of sites we’re running across multiple datacenters and the fact that we monitor all incoming requests coming through the Global CDN, we are in the unique position to detect datacenter health and intelligently failover so your site never misses a millisecond.

Multizone Failover is one more way that Pantheon manages all the infrastructure and carries the pager for your sites, so you can focus on your website, your brand, and your mission.

See it in action!

Stay tuned for a couch coding session on Tuesday, March 5 via live webinar, as well as a follow-up blog post with a video demo of failover in action!
