Introduction • Cloud Hosting is a very reliable, easily scalable and affordable hosting solution that differs from the traditional hosting solutions in several aspects. • Here is a short comparison that will make the differentiation more clear for you
Flexibility • A company wishes more bandwidth than normal; a cloud-based service can suddenly meet the requirement because of the huge capacity of the service’s remote servers. • In fact, this flexibility is so vital that 60% of defendants to an Information Week survey said “the ability to quickly meet business demands” was an important reason to move to cloud hosting
Reduced IT costs Moving to cloud hosting can decrease the cost of working and maintaining our IT systems. Rather than acquiring expensive systems and equipment for your business, you can shrink your costs by using the resources of your cloud computing service provider. You may be able to reduce your operating costs because • The cost of system upgrades, new hardware and software may be included in your contract • · You no longer need to pay wages for expert staff • · Your energy consumption costs may be reduced • ·There are fewer time delays .
Scalability Scalability is the ability of a system stay in the air when the level of demand (either peak or visits another factor that can modify the performance of the site) without presenting problems of the public. Usually, it occurs on a shared hosting platform, who has problems with these peak times issue. In cloud hosting services, (even in shared cloud) no such problems will occur for your website even in peak times
Disaster recovery When companies start trusting on cloud-based services, then there is no need of keeping the large recovery plans. Cloud hosting providers take of this kind of problem and they do it faster. It is being noticed that the group of company which uses cloud hosting, Can solve the problem faster than anyone else.
Cloud vs. Shared Hosting Shared hosting Shared hosting is the most popular hosting solution that can suit even the most tight budget. But using a shared hosting solution also means that the user has to share the server resources with other users. If your website is hosted on a shared hosting server Cloud On the cloud your website is hosted not only on one but on several servers connected to work as one. You don’t depend on only one machine – even if one machine is broken, the others will backup its data and processes and no downtime will appear -.
Cloud vs. Dedicated Hosting Dedicated Hosting Dedicated Servers are combined with managed hosting services. The web hosting provider leases out the full control to the client. But he still owns the machines and has to monitor the performance of the server ensuring the uninterrupted work flow of the server Cloud Another difference between the two hosting solutions, is that the resources of a dedicated server are usually used below 60%, so it never runs at full capacity. A fully loaded cloud can save a lot of electricity and money since it can replace 5 times of the dedicated servers
