About Cloud Hosting
The “cloud” in cloud computing is derived from the cloud diagram commonly used to showcase the Internet and each function of the system. Clouds are comprised of networks, storage, hardware, and interfaces. Services, such as infrastructure, software, and platforms are delivered over the Internet via cloud computing. Virtually any device can receive services through cloud hosting, such as laptops, desktops, smart phones, servers, and more. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Platform as a service (PaaS) are the three models that comprise cloud computing.
Cost & Provisioning
There are a few characteristics that are typical of cloud services, and also play a large role in why so many users implement cloud hosting. One trait of cloud hosting is pay-per-use, which ensures that users are never overcharged for unused services. Many providers claim their services are cloud services, yet they’re delivered on a fixed-term rather than on-demand. Another component of cloud hosting is provider monitoring and provisioning. This helps to remove the hassle of self-managing hardware, which can become more tedious with website and company growth. Updates to available services also lessen the need to regularly purchase new software.
Scalability is also an integral trait in cloud computing, and gives users the ability to fully manage the pool of resources they’re given access to. Hosting providers that don’t allow users to manage their own services and pick and choose which resources they need, are not delivering “cloud” hosting. JaguarPC offers hosting options sure to satisfy any user, company or e-commerce website owner.
