We pre­vi­ous­ly wrote about Hosting Provider tax­onomies, and the grow­ing com­plex­i­ty of choos­ing the right ser­vice for your needs. At always­da­ta, we’re con­vinced that you don’t have to be strug­gled by this com­plex­i­ty, that’s why we defined our­selves as a PaaS Provider for a quite a time.

Nevertheless, our mar­ket evolves, and we grow with it as well. The sim­ple PaaS tax­on­o­my wasn’t suf­fi­cient enough nowa­days to describe the real­i­ty of our product.

Welcome to the new world of Catalyst!
Welcome to the new world of Catalyst!

So be hap­py, here’s Catalyst!

But… what’s Catalyst?

First of all, Catalyst isn’t a full new prod­uct, but our new brand ded­i­cat­ed to pro­fes­sion­al ser­vices. A reg­u­lar evo­lu­tion to some­thing tai­lored for mod­ern needs.

Quickly, the prod­uct we start­ed as a Shared Hosting solu­tion gained more and more inter­est from the pro­fes­sion­al of our indus­try. As a log­i­cal evo­lu­tion, we evolved our solu­tion to han­dle ded­i­cat­ed pri­vate clus­ters of servers, ready to pow­er large and com­plex stacks. We did it with the same sack of sim­plic­i­ty we build our plat­form: by mak­ing it ready to han­dle any kind of project.

What we already had in mind was sim­ple: help­ing every pro­fes­sion­al to access the lev­el of ser­vices they need, bat­ter­ies includ­ed, with­out los­ing their mind. And there it is! Finally ready to be released under its new name, Catalyst is a mod­ern Private Cloud Solution, still by alwaysdata!

A Cloud Architecture, Ready to Run

Fifteen years ago, we start­ed our adven­ture by cre­at­ing a sim­ple Shared Hosting offer, because we didn’t trust the exist­ing one. From the begin­ning, we’re com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing a full-pro­vi­sioned envi­ron­ment, ready to run for every­one. Even if the name was dif­fer­ent, the con­cept was already there: we do a Cloud Hosting from the start.

An essen­tial point in our archi­tec­ture con­fig­u­ra­tion is its scal­a­bil­i­ty. We designed every part of the sys­tem to be resilient and replic­a­ble, han­dled by a com­mon admin­is­tra­tion pan­el. This scal­a­bil­i­ty allowed us to add the sup­port of pri­vate clus­ters eas­i­ly. And help us every day to han­dle the most com­plex stacks needs in a breath.

Providing hard­ware con­tainer­iza­tion for pro­fes­sion­als, pre­vi­ous­ly known as “VPS and Dedicated Hosting” was in our first expec­ta­tions for what is an awe­some adven­ture as a Hosting Provider. It’s one of the rea­sons behind being self-pro­vid­ed hard­ware. Catalyst is the exact prod­uct we have in mind, for years.
