Cloudways has just announced Autoscale (now called Autonomous) for WordPress, currently in Early Access. It’s a fully managed WordPress hosting solution with autoscaling, load balancing, high availability and more.
Autoscale for WordPress
As the name suggests, Cloudways Autoscale is a fully managed hosting solution for WordPress that automatically scales in real-time to handle traffic spikes on your sites, such as during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Powered by Kubernetes, Autoscale uses load balancers to efficiently distribute traffic for optimised website speed and performance. Hosting resources automatically scale up and down based on your traffic. This ensures that your WordPress sites or WooCommerce stores are always up and running and that you don’t lose any sales or leads due to downtime.
You also get access to Cloudflare’s enterprise-level edge caching and CDN, as well as the Object Cache Pro plugin for WordPress at no extra cost (normally $95 per month).
For mission-critical websites with high traffic and unexpected or planned traffic spikes, Cloudways Autoscale is an excellent solution. Pricing starts from $35 per month.
PS: In November 2023, they introduced 1-click staging for Cloudways Autoscale. You now have the convenience of testing WordPress updates and other changes on staging before deploying them to your production site.
