Cloud servers never go down as in case of any issue, one of the multiple nodes takes over the workload of the failed node automatically and this ensures zero downtime and maximum network uptime for your website and application.
With dedicated servers, there’s risk of downtime and hardware failure as they do not have multiple nodes to share the load.
2. Scalability of resources
Increase or decrease of allotted resources – computing cores, RAM, and storage, as per workloads, is very easy and simple with cloud server. ZNetLive’s cloud servers have scalable RAM, CPU, storage and strong technical resources to boost your website performance.
When it comes to dedicated server, rigid specifications are there and scaling of resources is a bit difficult and time consuming task.
3. Safety and security
With cloud servers, you have to trust your provider for the services and for taking adequate measures for security. Cloud service providers ensure data safety through dedicated IT support, secure and encrypted solutions, firewalls, and facilitate backup recoveries.
But in dedicated servers, you yourself need to take essential measures from monitoring server resources to upgrading your dedicated server to secure your sensitive and confidential business information.
Hourly resource-based billing is among big benefits of cloud server hosting is typically pay as you go, that means you pay only for the computing resources that you actually use. With cloud servers, bandwidth, SQL storage and disk space offered are bit expensive, but they are relatively cheaper and abundant with dedicated servers.
5. Level of control
In cloud server, one does not have complete control and is limited to offerings provided by the service provider.
However, a dedicated server offers complete control over the server as one can add applications, programs and performance enhancing measures to the machine.
