Cloud Hosting offers the level of market ableness which Traditional Hosting can’t. Cloud Hosting companies provide essential space on an on-demand. Instead of paying for a set amount of space direct on a single server. The users will pay as they go for what they actually use.
With the help of Cloud Hosting, the load is balanced across a cluster of multiple servers. The application and information contained on those servers are mirrored across the whole cluster, meaning that if an individual server goes down, there is no lost information. Because of repetition, Cloud Hosting is much more strong and elastic. Problem with one website or application is unlikely to affect your performance or bandwidth.
Cloud hosting companies provide IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-service). They will run and maintain all the necessary hardware and the customer pays for the resource they use, similar to how we pay for utilities like electricity.
IT departments don’t need to invest in-house server hardware. The customer does not need to pay for upfront for processing capacity or extra storage that they don’t use. Cloud Hosting is more quickly expandable than Traditional Hosting. If an application or website receive more or less traffic, the cloud server scale up and down automatically. With the help of Cloud Hosting, there is no need to manually add or remove server space as there is in shared hosting.
