The Jewel Hut

Part of the TH Baker Group, The Jewel Hut was launched in 2006, specialising in branded jewellery for fashion conscious buyers. The site experiences steady traffic with a significant spike in the lead up to the festive season, and other gifting holidays throughout the year. The Jewel Hut required a bespoke hosting solution to ensure no site crashes or slow downs, particularly during their critical sales periods when the site regularly sustains high traffic.

Why they chose us

  • Bespoke support
  • All Development & Hosting in-house
  • Reliable, clustered solution

The brief

To ensure the Jewel Hut customers’ continue to enjoy a seamless and smooth shopping experience, across all devices, particularly during periods of high traffic such as Black Friday weekend and the festive shopping season.

The solution

We understood that the Jewel Hut needed a lot of capacity and the ability to quickly increase available resources, so we provided a scalable cluster: a series of servers that were specifically configured to handle separate aspects of the solution.

Planning resources, strategically

Reliability

The Jewel Hut needed a hosting solution they could rely on, ensuring their site was online and stable at all times. We provided 24/7 proactive monitoring not just for uptime, but also to allow us to pinpoint and mitigate any issues before they develop to the point where they could affect the client's site.

Scalability

Knowing the trends in their online traffic and thinking ahead to planned seasonal promotions, the Jewel Hut knew they needed a scalable hosting solution that adapted to changes in site traffic, offering extra redundancy as required. Multiple servers would be required to handle significant loads across the site during times of high traffic.

High demands

Significant traffic spikes meant the Jewel Hut needed a solution that could handle high demand on their servers, without decreased performance to the end user.

Unique support

With our unique combination of hosting expertise and in-house development, we were able to offer support at all levels across the Jewel Hut’s website. Our team of hosting and development experts ensured the smooth running of the site, and continue to do so.

A scalable hosting solution

Specifically tailored for The Jewel Hut

This bespoke clustered hosting solution is made up of groups of components designed and configured to run specific aspects of an effective Magento hosting solution. Load balancers distribute traffic across a network of front-end web servers, delivering the majority of the content to clients. Behind all this lie a series of servers devoted to database and Redis delivery, as well as separate admin servers.

Development & hosting, combined

Project collaboration

Our unique blends of development and hosting expertise all under one roof ensured the smooth deployment of The Jewel Hut’s website and hosting solution. Using collaboration tool GitLab, all parties involved on the project including developers, systems administrators and the client themselves had complete visibility on progress.
