DigitalOcean’s Cloudways launches Autonomous to ensure high availability for growing business websites

DigitalOcean Holdings, Inc. the developer cloud optimized for startups and growing digital businesses, today announced the availability of Autonomous, Cloudways’ new managed WordPress hosting offering.

Autonomous is designed to simplify and streamline the user experience and help businesses grappling with fluctuating website traffic save valuable time and resources.

Autonomous addresses a common challenge faced by many growing businesses — balancing website availability during traffic surges without overestimating hosting needs and expenses. Traditionally, companies forecast how much traffic they anticipate and purchase hosting resources based on guesswork. However, this approach poses a dual risk: either falling short during traffic surges, leading to outages, or over-purchasing cloud resources, adversely impacting profitability. Businesses must ensure their websites can handle surges in website traffic, as these surges, often linked to evolving customer priorities, directly impact customer loyalty and trust. Any website crash during peak periods contributes to increased customer stress, reduces consumer trust, and damages the brand.

With Autonomous, resources are managed by Cloudways and automatically scale up as the traffic increases and then scale down once the traffic spike is over. As a result, customers benefit from a website that is operational during high traffic and also has a very predictable pricing model. The hands-off high availability and enterprise-level performance of Autonomous means that organizations’ websites can scale in line with the ongoing demand. This actively avoids having to force the business to migrate to a custom dedicated website solution, by removing the need to manage servers, possess IT skills, or risk spending thousands of dollars.

“We are incredibly excited to unveil Cloudways Autonomous, a revolutionary new platform designed to deliver unprecedented performance and availability for your WordPress websites,” said Suhaib Zaheer, SVP of Managed Hosting at DigitalOcean. “Cloudways Autonomous is engineered to effortlessly handle traffic spikes, guaranteeing that your website remains fast, reliable and responsive, no matter the demand. It is more than a service; it is peace of mind for businesses that rely on their online presence. We are proud to deliver the capability that our extensive customer base has asked us for, evidence that we listen to them, helping us set a new standard in web hosting performance and reliability.”
