How Cloud Hosting Can Provide 100% Uptime to Businesses
Thursday March 24, 2011
In order to successfully compete online, businesses need a quality web host that can effectively support the businesses ecommerce needs. Cloud hosting involves operating on multiple connected servers which means it is not limited to a single server. Cloud hosting facilitates the website to have access to multiple servers so that the processing power of the site becomes virtually unlimited which allows the cloud to have 100% up-time. As well, you can add a new server and further scale up. With cloud hosting, 100% up-time can be guaranteed and you also have the power of scalability, redundancy, and reliability ensuring that your data remains safe and available 24/7/365. Because the website is hosted across multiple servers, if a single server fails, the whole site will not go down. All of the data will instantly migrate to another server.
There are also many benefits to using the cloud such as cost efficiency due to its pay-per-usage feature, improved security, high performance, scalability in terms of load balancing, and its software and hardware upgrading. With the cloud, the expansion of website can also be executed with minimal restrictions as you have access to an abundance of memory, space, and bandwidth. This also means you will benefit from high processing power. As well, effective data backup solutions and data recovery technology ensures that your data will remain safe and protected 24/7.
Security is another essential feature of the cloud. Cloud infrastructure is protected with the most current anti-virus programs and anti-DDoS protection as well as other security technology to protect against such harmful elements as worms, hackers, Trojans, and Phishing. You will save your valuable time as the hosting provider takes care of the technical management tasks of the Cloud. When you receive your cloud, it will be in a ready-to-use form and you can access the cloud anywhere there is an internet connection.
The more popular your website becomes and the bigger it grows, the more resources you will have at your disposal to meet changing demands. The performance of the cloud, including its 100% up-time has made cloud hosting the most popular choice for enterprise of all sizes. With the cloud, you can grow your website in an efficient and cost effective way without sacrificing vital resources.
