Cloud hosting

Every owner of an application, an online store, a web-site is faced with the question of choosing a company that provides hosting services. The cloud hosting is very popular among all types of hosting. Its main difference from the usual, standard hosting is that the resource is located not on one local server, and in a network of linked virtual or physical cloud servers. This choice guarantees flexibility and the possibility of simple, maximally fast scalability. This means that even if one server fails, another is immediately connected and everything continues to work.

Cloud storage also includes the terms: cloud shared hosting, cloud VPS.

VPS hosting and cloud hosting: what to choose and what is the difference?

VPS is a dedicated virtual server. In essence, it is a virtual environment with its own operating system – with dedicated RAM, CPU time and disc capacity. The user (VPS owner) can install on his virtual server the necessary software, make its configuration. Virtual server can serve as a platform for placing Web-sites. In this case, the site will not depend on the sites of neighbours on the physical server.

VPS client receives a virtual environment with dedicated space on a disc or SSD and bandwidth, but computing resources and RAM of the host are evenly distributed among all VPS.

Cloud hosting

VPS hosting has long been recognised as a way to help businesses reduce costs and improve operational efficiency. By isolating applications within a single virtual server, VPS provides a high level of privacy, security and control.

Indeed VPS reduces hardware costs and gives the ability to run multiple operating systems or software suites simultaneously on separate virtual servers, this solution does not scale well.

Cloud hosting is virtual machines (VMs) in the cloud or IaaS (infrastructure as a service). In this type of hosting, physical servers are clustered together and storage systems are combined into a storage area network (SAN).

Cloud hosting

Benefits of cloud hosting

  1. The site is simultaneously stored on multiple linked servers.
  2. Payment is based on the use of resources. That is, as many resources you will use as you will pay for. Note: this does not mean that cloud hosting is cheaper than regular hosting, just the opposite!
  3. In the case of cloud hosting, the hypervisor typically creates multiple virtual servers on a cluster of physical servers. As with a traditional VPS, the user can customise and configure their guest OS, but most resources are allocated on demand. Whereas a VPS can only offer one operating system, cloud hosting offers the freedom of choice.
  4. Since cloud hosting uses a distributed server infrastructure, it makes resource allocation more flexible and increases the fault tolerance of the service, but the freedom of users to choose hosting parameters is more limited than in the case of VPS.

And there are no other differences from conventional hosting in the cloud.

Disadvantages of cloud hosting

  • It is difficult to calculate the cost of cloud hosting in advance.
  • More expensive than VPS.
  • The cloud platform typically implements its own operating system and application customisation features, and some technologies not provided by the service may not be available. These limitations also apply to site security.
