What is Cloud Server?
In some respects cloud servers work in the same way as physical servers but the functions they provide can be very different. When opting for cloud hosting, clients are renting virtual server space rather than renting or purchasing physical servers. We are offer paid by the month depending on the capacity required at any particular time.
- Flexibility and scalability: extra resource can be accessed as and when required
- Cost-effectiveness: whilst being available when needed, clients only pay for what they are using at a particular time
- Ease of set up: Cloud servers do not require much initial setup
- Reliability: due to the number of available servers, if there are problems with some, the resource will be shifted so that clients are unaffected.
With cloud hosting clients get the best of both worlds. Resource can be scaled up or scaled down accordingly, making it more flexible and, therefore, more cost-effective. When there is more demand placed on the servers, capacity can be automatically increased to match that demand without this needing to be paid for on a permanent basis. This is akin to a heating bill; you access what you need, when you need it, and then only pay for what you’ve used afterwards.
Fast, efficient And scalable up.
