I am still not able to understand what is cloud hosting even after being so long in the hosting industry & how does it work? Also what control panel is good for cloud hosting? Can someone tell me about it?
The first thing you need to know is that “the cloud” exists in data centers, which you access via the internet. It is a collection of networked computer hardware that works together to provide many aspects of computing in the form of online services.
One of the central features of the cloud is virtualization. Virtual machines created with software that subdivides the computing power, memory, and storage of a given machine into multiple smaller units, each running their operating system. This virtualization allows computing resources to be shared and allocated efficiently across the cloud.
Cloud computing is a general term that is better divided into three categories: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) – where big players like Amazon and Google rent out immense computing infrastructure to other companies, Platform as a Service (PaaS) – online spaces where developers create online applications for specific sets of users and software as a Service (SaaS) – where clients use software over the internet.
A cloud server is a virtual server running in a cloud computing environment. It is built, hosted and delivered via a cloud computing platform via the internet, and can be accessed remotely.Cloud servers have all the software they require to run and can function as independent units.
For each computer used in any organization, it needs a license to carry out the tasks like data sharing and for other complex work, machines with high processing power and dedicated equipment are required. This needs a huge capital. So, the substitute for this is ‘cloud hosting’.
The backend and frontend involves mostly logging into applications through web browsers. The backend provided by a cloud hosting service is in the form of SaaS (Software as a service), PaaS (Platform as a service) or IaaS (Infrastructure as a service).
Cloud hosting service uses the following technologies –
1) Hardware –
As a cloud hosting service does not use any dedicated server to store the client’s data, it uses high-end servers with high capacity and high-speed hard disks, along with the high capacity of RAM.
2) In public cloud models, the hosting is done on a virtual server that pulls resources from the other publicly available virtual resources.
3) This public network is used to transfer the data which is stored on a server that acts as a resource for the cloud.
4) All these public clouds include security measures to ensure that the data is kept private and won’t be affected by any malware.
5) Private cloud is more suitable from the security and privacy point of view. It uses ring-fenced resources like servers and networks that are located on-site or with the cloud service provider.
As internet crimes are increasing day by day you need to secure your website and blog. So, it is always better to find a reliable hosting provider. And if you are looking for more security, then cloud hosting doesn’t have any substitute.
