Choosing the right hosting environment is essential in positioning a business for successful growth. Companies operate differently based on clientele, the need to process information/orders, and how quickly market adaptation changes are needed. The common thread is the necessity of being digital to survive in today’s economy. Eventually, you’ll reach the crossroad of comparing a cloud server to a physical server to determine your best hosting environment.
Cloud computing is a model for empowering users to access a useful, network-accessible, shared pool of resources that allows for quick changes to settings and configurations with minimal intervention from a service provider in an easy-to-maneuver self-service management interface.
If you have been in the hosting industry for some time, you most likely had to upgrade your hosting package or resize your server at some point. As your business grows, so do the resources needed to run that business. Over the years, someone has most likely recommended a private cloud solution to you. You probably asked yourself why you would need a more expensive private solution like VMware cloud when you have a powerful VPS server or Dedicated server that is perfectly capable of handling your existing traffic.
A project is a group of virtual machines, servers, and online assets such as domain registration that work together to deliver your business online. These cloud computing-based servers work in tandem to ensure that your website and applications are always online, regardless of operating your business on a dedicated server, VPS, or cloud environment.
