What is Cloud Based Hosting?

Cloud computing, also known as ‘on-demand computing’, is a kind of Internet-based computing, where shared resources, data and information are provided to computers and other devices on-demand. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources. Cloud computing and storage solutions provide users and enterprises with various capabilities to store and process their data in third-party data centres. It relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale, similar to a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network. At the foundation of cloud computing is the broader concept of converged infrastructure and shared services.

Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort.

What benefits does cloud based hosting offer?

All hosting provides companies with a presence on the internet, however the advantages of cloud hosting opposed to other types is the flexibility and security which is afforded through the integration of multiple machines. There can be significant savings in reduced costs of managing and maintaining IT systems as you no longer need to employ specialist staff to maintain upgrades and machinery. There is a reduced risk of single point failure as when there is an issue the system automatically reverts to another machine to maintain connection.

The flexibility for growth on the website can be scaled up or down quickly dependent upon your operational and storage needs to suit your situation. Cloud based hosting can be adapted to suit large and small businesses alike.
