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.
