We make web developers more
effective and help online businesses scale.

Our success has been built on
a simple guiding principle:
make others successful.


Anchor provides managed cloud hosting – with a special focus on e-commerce. How can we help you?

managed infrastructure

Know your way around a server? Got your DevOps chops? We will manage the OpenStack cloud platform & infrastructure; you take responsibility for the configuration & management of your servers, website & applications. And if you get stuck — we’re here if you need us.

managed operations

If you’d rather, you can leave the server management to us — and focus your energies on your website or app. We’ll handle everything an in-house SysAdmin or 24×7 Operations team would; building, securing, optimising, scaling & managing your servers on AWS or OpenStack.

devops automation

Take your business to the next level – this completely changes the nature of our engagement. By integrating our ops automation specialists with your dev team, we’ll make your web app (and business) far more efficient, scalable and effective – providing real competitive advantage.

fleet for magento

We’ve applied our DevOps Automation methodologies to Magento and the result is game changing for online retailers. Fast & simple deployment of new code, self-service testing & zero-downtime promotion of code into an auto-scaling, production environment. And it’s cost effective!

Fleet Magento-as-a-Service

MagentoDeveloped exclusively by Anchor, Fleet is a new hosting platform that enables you to deploy performance enhancements, new features and security updates into production — safely and with zero-downtime, every time.

Fleet for Magento provides Anchor customers with a high availability, autoscaling cloud-based ‘Magento as a Service’ platform that makes Magento development a pleasure, and only charges you for the resources you use.

Fleet entirely redefines Anchor. It transforms us from a company that solves problems to a company that prevents them. Some of the web development companies already working with Anchor have seen major efficiency improvements by switching to Fleet, and this translates to lower costs, faster release of new features and vastly improved uptime for online retailers using Magento. – Bart Thomas, Anchor CEO

DevOps Automation

You write code. We automate your infrastructure.

Anchor has always had a strong reputation for reliable, powerful and traditional managed hosting — maybe just a bit too traditional! Hosting and web development methodologies have evolved significantly in the last few years, which is why we’ve recently rebuilt our entire hosting model.

We now provide “DevOps Automation” as a managed service, complementing our traditional managed hosting services and leveraging the AWS and OpenStack clouds to bridge the gap between operations and software development. If your organisation is looking for competitive advantage and the enablement of frequent, safe and ’zero-downtime’ testing & promotion of new code into production — talk to us.
