Cloud Hosting 101

  1. 1. Cloud Hosting 101<br />Most people these days have heard of cloud hosting, <br />but what does it really mean? <br />To fully comprehend the true meaning of cloud hosting, <br />you first need to define it to understand what cloud computing is. <br /><ul><li>Public
  2. 2. Private
  3. 3. Enterprise</li></li></ul><li>Cloud Hosting 101<br />Public <br />Public cloud is similar to shared hosting in that it is more affordable. <br />However, when you buy a shared hosting plan, you are stuck with the limitations of the plan that you selected. <br />On the other hand, public cloud is scalable so you can start with a little and then expand your resources as you need more.<br />
  4. 4. Cloud Hosting 101<br />Public <br />All the information that you create and/or use within these programs are stored online across multiple servers. <br />You may also get into this data from anywhere around the world that you have internet. <br />It's services may vary from a small application on a public cloud to entire virtual networks running inside a private cloud. <br />The specific characteristics of cloud computing is that the applications and all of the data are spread across multiple servers. <br />In reality, it's a cluster of computers that act as a whole<br />
  5. 5. Cloud Hosting 101<br />Private<br />With a private cloud, any downtime or failing moments on any server won't affect your applications. <br />Not to mention, you're only benefiting from the bandwidth levels and power of processing. <br />This translates into an unlimited amount of bandwidth, storage, or processing power as a result of a system of hosting with a wide spread amount of space capacity.<br />
  6. 6. Cloud Hosting 101<br />Private<br />Given, cloud hosting might sound a little bit like shared hosting, but don't get them confused, for the are completely different, leaving cloud hosting the best way to go. <br />Shared hosting deals with your applications and it's related data on a single big server with tens and maybe even hundreds of separate websites. <br />You are at risk of security and share among many other sites.<br />
  7. 7. Cloud Hosting 101<br />Private<br />But with cloud hosting, all of the sites, applications, and data are uploaded and spread across the entire infrastructure. <br />The hosting provider then makes a decision on what websites need what processor power and bandwidth by identifying how much traffic they are receiving. This type of setup guarantees plenty of space in the system. <br />If your site instantly needs more power and/or bandwidth, the provider adapts by adding what resources are needed.<br />
  8. 8. Cloud Hosting 101<br />Enterprise<br />Enterprise cloud computing is the special case of utilizing cloud computing for competitive advantage through breakout opportunities both for cost savings. <br />More importantly, for business innovation in terms of unprecedented speed and agility with vastly improved collaboration among business partners and customers. <br />What does “cloud computing” mean for the enterprise? <br />More important than the question of “what is it?” is why it matters. <br />
  9. 9. Cloud Hosting 101<br />Enterprise<br />Here are three key points.<br />On the cost side of the equation, many, but not all, IT and data center costs can be reduced and tied directly to usage, up or down as needs go up or down (rapid elasticity). <br />
  10. 10. Cloud Hosting 101<br />Enterprise<br />Here are three key points.<br />2) Risk and startup expenses for innovation initiatives can be cut dramatically, letting companies take more small bets and test out more new ideas. <br />With no upfront capital expense, new projects can be scaled up instantly if they take off, or shut down quickly if they fail. <br />Massive scalability and up-or-down elasticity give companies a whole new sandbox for testing new business ideas and growing them if they take off. <br />
  11. 11. Cloud Hosting 101<br />Enterprise<br />Here are three key points<br />3) Companies don’t work alone, and, on average, over 20 companies make up today’s value chains. <br />Cloud computing allows a company to collaborate in new ways with its trading partners, and collaboration is the key to gaining competitive advantage across the value chain. <br />By establishing shared workspaces in “Community Clouds” employees from multiple companies can work together as a “virtual enterprise network” and function as though they were a single company. <br />They all participate in the same value delivery system, sharing computing, communication and information resources. <br />This is especially important as no one company “owns” the overall value chain. <br />
