What is Cloud Hosting?
Cloud hosting services provide hosting on virtual servers which pull their computing resource from extensive underlying networks of physical web servers. This enables users to access the same software and data from different devices.Our customers benefit from fully-managed secure off-premise infrastructure and services. Our hosted solutions are cost-effective, scalable and resilient environments. We leverage our extensive experience with data centres as well as mainstream cloud platforms such as Amazon (AWS), Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure to help our clients obtain exciting benefits for their businesses in London.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), delivers pre-installed and configured hardware or software through a virtualized interface. Some of the major providers offering infrastructure as a service solution include Google, IBM, Amazon and Verizon.
Software as a Service (SaaS), provides web-based applications on demand to customers and can include web conferencing, ERP, CRM, email, time management and project tracking among others.
Platform as a Service (PaaS), apart from simply providing infrastructure, PaaS also provides a computing platform and solution stack as a service.
Cloud hosting has beneficial features that set it apart from other kinds of hosting.
- Flexibility – Users can scale services from anywhere with an internet connection
- Scalability – You can scale your resource use in real-time
- Customisation – Cloud hosting gives users the opportunity to have extensive customisation options
- Data Security – Security protocols are installed to protect sensitive information
- Unique Pricing – You only pay for what you use
It would be impossible to recreate the resilience and scalability of the Microsoft Azure platform in your own office. You would have to invest heavily in network infrastructure which may include multiple high-speed internet lines, multiple servers and expensive backup with monitoring around the clock.
To mitigate the risk of a disaster (like a fire) taking down your company and losing your data, you’d need to recreate an identical environment and house it somewhere else, on standby. Amazon can offer this to you at a click, and at a fraction of the price. The type of setup required to build your company its own local platform of this quality would be out of reach for most businesses if they tried to fund it themselves. And even if it were more affordable, the obvious economies of scales have seen corporations eagerly embracing the cloud revolution. The good news for smaller businesses is that now they can, too.
How Does Cloud Hosting Work?
Cloud hosting is broken down into two parts:
- Virtual Server – shares hardware and software resources with other operating systems. Mostly popular in Web hosting environments.
- Physical Hosts – Linked to the virtual servers
The two unique parts of Cloud Hosting allows extensive flexibility and scalability in a responsive way that isn’t available with other styles of hosting.
