How does Cloud Hosting work?

 

Website needs can fluctuate drastically on a daily, weekly or seasonal basis. Cloud hosting allows companies to scale their computing power to match demand by hosting the website on multiple servers.

Typically, a hardware and/or service upgrade is necessary when a website reaches a shared or dedicated server’s capacity, or when the server crashes due to some sort of failure. Unfortunately, it takes a lot of time and money to implement these upgrades and the website will most likely experience downtime.

 

The result:

 

1) Bulky equipment does not need to be installed to enhance performance, power and reliability.

Resources are pooled from the multiple servers to handle any load or demand spikes. When the additional resources are no longer needed, it is then relieve back to the cloud.

 

 

2) Hosting on multiple servers provide significant redundancy against downtime. In case of failure of a server in the cloud, failover hardware kick-in as a backup to render the required resources.
