UK company, Advice Forge introduces its premium service of Geographic failover Clusters for the UK internet market under the names “Server cluster 4XL” and “4XXL.” They introduce a highly technical solution of Geographic High Availability Server Clusters that will result in even superior contractual availability (SLA 99.96 %) compared to standard dedicated services.
What is a Geographic High Availability Server Cluster?
Also known as a “geographic failover cluster” it operates between two (or more) servers, providing continuous availability of hosted services. In the unfortunate instance of failure of the primary server, replication is automatically represented in near real time, by the second server with the same configuration, albeit operated from a separate geographic location, in case of regional service failure.

Cluster solutions are a vital resource for internet projects with a high sensitivity to service availability. Below are the details of our two exceptional, robust, flexible Server Cluster packages with an unbelievable price / performance ratio.
