I am to start a multi-informational site which should be hosted on a dedicated server, as I planned, but recently I got to know about Virtual Application Server hosting solutions which are caled to be more flexible
Can anybody give any informatin of the services? Is there anything similar to cloud hosting in it?
Actually VAS is not something alike cloud hosting but most ly Software as a service (SaaS) option. However this makes it more flexible than usual VPS or dedi.I got my vps hosting from vpswebserver.com and i would say the staff there is so supportive in every aspects .
Know where your data lives. How can you secure your data if you don’t know where it is? Sure, firewalls and intrusion detection and prevention can keep out most intruders, and data encryption keeps the data safer, but how do you know where your data goes when you terminate your service or when the cloud provider goes out of business? Being able to point to a machine and say your data and only your data is on that machine, goes a long way in the security of your data in the cloud. Dedicated hardware is the key that allows for cloud computing services to pass the most stringent security guidelines.
Cloud is different than normal Virtual hosting. In Normal Virtual hosting, a single Dedicated server is virtualized whereas in Cloud server its done on a cluster of servers which are connected to each other.
Well cloud computing is the way to go in the high tech world...It is like a SaaS service where users can access the whole software program via the cloud.....cloud hosting has many benefits one of the major ones is its flexibility .It is very quick , easy to get up & running, cheaper and offers virtually unlimited storage compared to server and hard drive limits..!
Cloud hosting provides us server clustering i.e. the resources are spread across more than one web server, and are rendered as per need.It also allows us to manage peak loads easily, without facing any bandwidth issues.
Check on the disk space allocation, bandwidth, security features, traffic flow, e-mail storage capacity, and the kind of multiple domain accounts and, then, choose the best option for your specific needs.
Cloud hosting has many advantages over the shared hosting services and sometimes performs better than dedicated hosting solutions. There are different cloud computing technologies and cloud hosting providers offer different cloud service platforms.
