(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Since the world is moving at the pace the Internet is the source for many to research and deploy things online with many technologies to develop their business presence in the digital world. From last decade technology is changing in a rapid phase. IT organizations, B2B industries and Online organizations have selected Cloud server technology and forgets all other hosting options because of its flexibility and features deployed by its different platforms. These services are based on hardware Virtualization and resource allocation based on units not only in amounts of server resources. It is to decide, if we want a certain amount of CPU, memory, disk, network.
The specialized Cloud environment and platforms developed by Cloud help organizations to deploy their services without any downtime and even in time of high traffic on the website. The network server technology and load balancing works simultaneously to divide the load generated on site and allow a website to work in any traffic situation. Many companies have decided to migrate their systems to cloud hosting services, which has many advantages.
In this post, I will try to give arguments about the advantages of cloud computing to those who still are not convinced to migrate their services to the cloud. This will put examples of different suppliers, but my idea is to give reasons for the cloud service generically.
Companies generally oppose profound changes. They tend to follow a course of action over which they have control, they have the expertise in house, and based on the axiom “if it works do not touch it.” The cloud services have to be administered, there’s no doubt. This requires staff with the necessary training. That there is no doubt. But faced with the complication of asking machines budgets, approval of area managers, price negotiation, order delivery expected, Inspection of the machines in the corresponding CPD, installation of operating systems, and security, Cloud Hosting service only requires a request to install a platform.
To Select a cloud server is what all you have to do. Cloud servers are available in three platforms which includes Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud solutions. The Scalable Cloud developed by eUKhost gives you a complete overview of your required hardware to deploy your service online. You have complete freedom to upgrade your resources at any point of time. Hardware installation is not required in Cloud server so it takes no time to set up your cloud just pay as you go.
3) Uptime. Keeping 100% effective.
After the fall of Amazon AWS last year, many people have some fear of the Cloud service. But the reality is that even with a drop in the characteristics of the Cloud server, it can work without falling. Let’s see why.
The cloud service as noted above are based on the allocation of hardware resources in a virtualized network, not allocating physical machines. So if a server within a Cloud Hosting falling, the connected network of servers is standing together to continue providing the service, while the supplier replaced the part that fails.
And what happens if the virtualized network goes down? Typically, such failures do not occur as the network elements are redundant, as well as data traffic providers. Because if one network location is in such danger then the provider can use another service location to deploy services and maintain the down network to deploy services. Meanwhile, users have uninterrupted services from another location without knowing a downtime on the website.
4) Variety of services.
Nowadays there are few services that cannot be placed on Cloud. Most vendors only facilitate a Cloud Hosting service, I.E. gives us the ability to create servers with the RAM, Processors and Disk space and freedom to decide our own configurations for the specified time and can be changed later. Every provider is different in manner of RAM, CPU and HDD but they all have one thing in common is “Build Your own server”. Cloud servers have major three services, 1) Platform as a service 2) Information as a Service 3) Software as a service. You have to decide from this 3 services and deploy your cloud, according to your need on 3 platforms which are, 1) Public cloud 2) Private Cloud 3) Hybrid cloud.
The cloud is instantly scalable. One of the major disadvantages of using dedicated servers for hosting is that when sizing need to be clear, what is the starting point, which is the arrival, and how long it’s going to take on the road. This determines which hardware to buy and how much we have to scratch your pocket.
In the case of using Cloud, such issues go to the background. Obviously we need to know if the service is able to bear the burden that we will commit, but if not, three mouse clicks are enough to increase their capacity and continue to provide service immediately. This expansion nearly cost without headaches. Imagine doing the same maintaining hardware. Output implies that you have to be clear about the architecture that you are riding and if you fall short, buy more iron and add. The expanded service times increase considerably, and for business losses can be substantial.
Needless to say that if you are covered at the hardware level, capacity and expand abilities, the system is very reliable. Practically nothing will make you lose your service and follow your business offering to your customers.
Migrate your cloud services will make you improve your profitability. It’s very simple. Cloud services are affordable and reliable. Not only because the service if it is, but because it saves a lot of your costs and allows you to save lost in case you need to grow. In case you have a hosting service in your own room in a CPD your savings will be more or less like this: your technicians will be much more efficient, you will save traces of CPD, connectivity with suppliers, operations departments, hardware failures. All this adds a significant amount of extra money.
8) Pay for what you use.
One of the great advantages of Cloud Hosting is the ability to pay exactly what you use. As I said before, when you use a dedicated hosting or housing, you have to size the platform for today as well as for the expected growth for the period you choose. This makes you have to make a strong initial outlay to purchase the hardware. Also, at an early stage is quite underutilized. The worst of it will be wrong in the forecasts. We succeed or die of boredom machines if you calculate wrong.
In a hosting in the cloud have the great advantage of being able to start with a modest service tailored to your ability to pay and of course your ability to monetize at the time of the project’s output. There is no point spending a pasture if that makes you go to lose money.
9) Do your tests!
Currently eUKhost allows testing of its eNlight Cloud Computing VM machines to see if you can do with the service and to learn to handle it. You can create as many instances and test it.
10) It is the new standard of Web Hosting
Currently one third of Internet users are addicted to Cloud services. In a time like the present in which these services are starting to grow, it is a symptom that is not a fad, but practically a necessity if you want to be left behind with the rest of your competitors.
Cloud computing is the future, but it is really important to find a reliable service provider to get a secure online presence.
