Divide and conquer—this is the main concept behind cloud hosting. Compared to other web hosting configurations, cloud hosting reduces the risk of downtime due to server malfunction by a great factor. This is because resources needed to maintain a website are spread across multiple servers instead of just one. Services, therefore, can be rendered through an as per need basis, allowing users to manage peak loads much more easily and without the usual bandwidth issues, as additional resources can be sourced from another server.
With cloud hosting, your website doesn’t have to rely on a single server and rather, acquire needed resources from a cluster of servers, working together as a “cloud.” Each server in the cloud works to carry out specific sets of tasks and can easily bear the weight of another, in case of failure, in that other servers can temporarily kick in to serve as back-up to render required resources. The same thing is true in case of overload conditions.
Cloud hosting is relatively new, but it has come a long way as many large enterprises have been implementing it for years. However, pricing will have to be pulled down further for small business owners to be able to have a taste of what cloud hosting is like. Thankfully, newer technologies are becoming available to make this more possible. In fact, more and more organisations and businesses are being compelled to make the shift to the clouds.
