As hosting technology evolves, we are introduced to new categories of cloud infrastructure such as IaaS and PaaS. Each of these structures has advantages and disadvantages depending on your business goals. In this article, we cover all you need to know about Infrastructure As A Service or IaaS so you can determine if it’s the right choice for your business.
Cloud computing is the use of internet-connected servers to host software and virtual infrastructure accessed and controlled over the web or an API. The phrase “cloud computing” has only been used for a decade or so, but the history of cloud computing stretches back much further. In this article, we provide a brief history of cloud computing from the 1960s to today.
A cloud application is an application that provides the functionality of a native application, but which runs in the cloud and is interacted with via web browsers and APIs. When we talk about the cloud, we usually mean public cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service platforms, but IaaS was a late-comer in the cloud space compared to Software-as-a-Service — cloud applications came first.
A database is the heart of most modern web applications, mobile applications, and services. Whether it’s a traditional SQL database like MySQL or PostgreSQL or a NoSQL database like MongoDB, the server that hosts your database will determine its reliability, availability, and performance. In this article, we will explore the factors that you should keep in mind when choosing a database server and take a look at three types of server – hybrid, cloud, and dedicated — and their suitability for hosting databases of various types and sizes.Read More
Server technology is advancing at a steady rate each year. The components used in servers are becoming more powerful and efficient than ever.
But with advancements in IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) or cloud technology, utilizing the cloud may be a better option than purchasing servers for your office.
You may think purchasing a web server is cheaper. It's a one time fee and you can use the server for years. However, there is more to the story.
These days, backing up your information on a cloud server is a safe bet. That goes double if you're running a business and need storage. But should you choose a public cloud server or a private cloud server?
The kind of server that you should get depends on your needs. They both have benefits that should be considered prior to deciding.
In this article, we will discuss private and public cloud servers and why you may choose one over the other.
Looking to secure data on the cloud? One of the primary advantages of cloud hosting is security. Cloud applications are designed so that vulnerabilities can be immediately patched rather than having to wait for users to install updates. But with recent data breaches at large cloud providers, how safe is the cloud?
When you choose a cloud provider your number one question should be, how are they going to keep my information safe? While cloud providers can assure you that security is their top concern, you can take some steps to ensure your information doesn’t fall victim to security breaches and hackers.
Looking for a place to host your business applications and data? Outgrown your current hosting plan? It might be time to make the switch to cloud servers.
Cloud dedicated servers are the future of business hosting. From reduced cost and increased storage space, they outperform their traditional hosting counterparts in almost every way.
Let’s take a look at why your business needs a cloud dedicated server.
Cloud hosting service providers span a vast range of services, capabilities, and expertise. The best cloud hosting providers offer a secure and reliable infrastructure platform capable of supporting and scaling business critical operations easily and consistently. But it can be difficult for prospective cloud clients to tell the difference between a great cloud hosting service provider and a provider that can’t offer the best service.
We’re rapidly approaching the tenth anniversary of the cloud. In the last decade, the cloud has fundamentally reshaped the infrastructure hosting and enterprise IT space, and in the process has matured enormously. The cloud has evolved from a rudimentary alternative to on-prem data centers to the highly capable and flexible platform we take for granted today.
It will continue to evolve in the future, in ways that are both predictable and beyond our ability to forecast. The future of cloud will be managed, hybrid, make heavy use of containers, and be distributed beyond the traditional data center.
