Cloud Hosting

What is Cloud Hosting? It is a term that is currently causing a stir; it may be the first time you hear it, but it is a concept that has been around for years. Cloud refers to a large computing infrastructure to which users connect from their computers to look up information or use programs operating from that infrastructure. So a cloud hosting service runs on multiple servers interconnected, unlike web hosting which utilizes the traditional single server and is limited to the capacity of that server.

Cloud Hosting is the web hosting platform of the future because now  Cloud is available to everyone.  However, it is not a new concept and you are already part of the users of cloud computing services (without realizing it) thanks to big companies like Google or Amazon who have spent years promoting this concept.

Advantages of Cloud Hosting

Cloud Hosting service gives you the following advantages:

Elasticity – Customers of Cloud Hosting services do not have to invest huge amounts of money to buy, manage, maintain and scale a huge physical infrastructure required to handle drastic changes in the flow of data traffic and visitors. Instead of having to invest time and money to keep their sites running, they only pay for the resources they use as they need them. This feature is known as elasticity and means that customers need not waste time predicting how they will grow, they can promote their sites aggressively and spontaneously and be sure they will have adequate resources to cope with the number of visits.

High Availability – Their service is always online.  Internet connections, network infrastructure, controlled environment, security and backup electrical power within a Data Center. However, Cloud service makes a difference should a server fail – in minutes another server will automatically come online ensuring minimum downtime.

Maximum flexibility – You can grow your service when you need, adding RAM and processor when required. Your website will never have a limit and monitor your service is an easy and intuitive task.
