WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CLOUD HOSTING

You’ve probably heard the word “Cloud” used to describe hosting solutions. Here’s what you need to know about the Cloud to make an informed decision whether Cloud is right for you:

CLOUD DEFINED

Cloud computing is a set of pooled computing resources and services delivered over the web. That means information and files can be accessed and shared from anywhere that has an Internet connection.

THE MAIN BENEFITS OF CLOUD

On-Demand Access: As long as someone has an Internet connection, they can reach the Cloud.

Resource Pooling: Multiple users can access files, applications and data from one central source.

Elasticity & Flexibility:  Should there be a need for more or less space, a Cloud can quickly increase or decrease its scale to handle varied loads. For example: seasonal web traffic.

THERE ARE FOUR TYPES OF CLOUD

Private Cloud: Created for access by one organization, this cloud is managed and monitored off-premise by a managed hosting company, like Contegix.

Community Cloud: This type of Cloud is accessed by several organizations and is either hosted on-site off-site or through a managed hosting company.

Public Cloud: The general public or a large organization has access to this cloud, typically hosted offsite with a managed hosting company.

Hybrid Cloud: These are two clouds tied together so that data and applications can be shared between the two. Typically hosted offsite through a managed hosting company.
