Juicy Media Ltd, our Mission statement from the leaders in Magento and Joomla development.

Hosting, we provide dedicated, cloud, and colocation services, from numerous datacentres. With near 100% uptime on all juicy servers you are guaranteed high levels of service.

Our aim is to take clients' requirements and best match their needs to existing technologies that can be delivered through Open-Source implementations. Our Clients enjoy this approach because the end-result is exactly what they wanted, and where applicable avoids license fees for costly operating systems.

Our hosting solution is made up of a number of options covering a client's planned growth. We offer the following features on a ranging SLA (service level agreement) from 97% through to 99.99%:

  • Dedicated server configurations
  • Co-located servers managed on behalf of our clients
  • Cloud based delivery through:
    • our Rightscale managed auto-scaling Amazon AWS infrastructure
    • and also through our purpose built Rackspace Hybrid Cloud
  • Complex hybrid combinations with elements of all listed here, enabling new facilities such as failover dark-sites
  • Consultancy service for 3rd party providers such as Fasthosts, Webfusion, Bytemark, Memset and NuBlue

Our expertise in managed Linux environments means that we can offer hosting for practically any project, and we use our experience of such environments to give our clients the best possible service.



Our aim is to adjust our hosting strategy to enable us to provide "pay as you grow" services by offering tailored cloud delivery.

In our view, this is vital to new businesses as most of our first-time clients simply don't understand the complexities of running a website and the costs associated with it.

By leveraging the scalability of cloud we can offer packages to our clients that best suit their initial position, then with their own growth they can invest more into infrastructure.



An example implementation would be the architecture that this site operates from. What we have, at Juicy Media, is an advanced Enterprise-grade delivery process covering multiple vectors:

  • A tailored Linux Debian operating system
  • Joomla! 2.x, with Yootheme ZOO content construction kit, Rockettheme Gantry framework and various bespoke plugins and extensions
  • Apache and MySQL tuned to match the requirements of the Open-Source application Joomla!
  • Memcache, APC and Varnish providing different levels of content and image caching



Hardware configuration and structure has several key elements to support web delivery. Critical issues are speed and security: we employ the following hardware to achieve our target.

  • Hardware Firewall - as the frontline defence this is responsible for enumeration of incoming data
  • Caching Proxy - this receives the bulk of the web requests, delivering images and full-page content
  • Web Server - running Apache and PHP, this processes the web application requests only when the caching proxy can't
  • SQL Firewall - this provides a low-level check on queries to the database, checking for SQL injection amongst many items
  • Database Server - this is a tuned MySQL server providing data storage for all Joomla! content
