5 Benefits of Cloud Hosting

The popularity of cloud computing in recent years can be attributed to many things. The ability for many users to share resources is certainly one of them, by doing so a group of users can leverage the participation of multiple users into significant cost savings. One of the many aspects of cloud computing is that of cloud hosting.

Cloud hosting is the use of multiple servers that are all connected together. These connected servers are cumulatively referred to as a cloud. Sites on the servers may use resources from any or even all of the servers in the cloud.

The concept of cloud hosting has become very popular during the last few years because all of the hard drives, processing power and memory are shared by all of the sites in the cloud. Servers can be added to or removed from the cloud according to need. The benefits of cloud hosting are numerous but five of the more significant and apparent ones are listed below:


1. Scalability

The concept of using numerous servers that are all connected together sharing resources for all users makes it possible for each participating user to scale up or down as needed. This provides incredible flexibility because most participants can make adjustments without having to purchase their own hardware.

2. Reliability

One of the amazing advantages to cloud hosting is that if one of the connected servers fails, another one temporarily kicks in to provide back up until the problem server can be fixed or replaced. Because of this, some cloud hosting companies are claiming to have a 99.9% uptime.

3. Cost effectiveness

Since cloud hosting allows clients to pay only for actual resources used, it is much more cost effective than paying for and maintaining your own server[s]. With cloud hosting technology, you are essentially sharing the infrastructure and the resources with others. This drastically lowers the cost. Cloud hosting provides many of the same advantages of dedicated hosting (owning your own server) without all of the expense that is usually involved.

4. Efficiency (saves time)

Cloud hosting enables instant deployment taking away the need to obtain physical servers or any other related equipment. One can scale up or down without limit immediately without facing any downtime.

5. Simplified management

Since the cloud hosting company is responsible for maintaining the servers, each individual client has much less to manage. It is nice to let someone else worry about keeping the servers working properly and it frees you up to run other aspects of your business. One of the reasons that small businesses benefit from cloud hosting is because they can sometimes save thousands of dollars up front by avoiding the capital expenditure of purchasing their own servers. Additionally, they can substantially reduce power bills costs needed to maintain and upgrade
server hardware. Some small business owners feel that cloud servers and other cloud-based solutions are much easier to set up and use than computer applications.

Cloud hosting is not for everyone. It all depends on the size and nature of your business along with your level of technical expertise and various other considerations. The five benefits discussed in this article should be considered as you evaluate your options.
