Cloud Computing as a new concept to new users creates a lot of confusion as to what is the basic difference between cloud based web servers and servers which are not cloud-based ?
Cloud Computing is a wide concept and requires a lot more understanding than any other hosting package. Of course, this definitely means more towards redundancy and reliability of hosting servers along with other functionalities.
Cloud computing runs over many concepts such as Grid Computing and utility computing. Cloud computing implies towards a large network of cluster server envrionment serving ever-growing requirements of hosting users. Cloud-based servers are easily scalable in terms of resources when compared to the hosting packages which are not setup on Cloud. Cloud Computing basically serves “infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), or software as a service (SaaS).
The basic idea of cloud computing is not to increase the investments in terms of physical infrastructure in order to handle difference in the web traffic and at the same time offer thrice as redundancy and reliability over any basic non-cloud hosting package.
In the recent hosting market, there are many hosting providers offering “pay for what you use” service which adds to the advantage that you do not have to pay for what you don’t use.
BODHost Ltd. has aimed to provide services which will include both “pay for what you use” services as well as basic virtual private server hosting services which are setup on cloud computing platform with standard resource allocations to ensure 100% redundancy and reliablity. BOD-Cloud will be setup on various cloud computing platform’s such as VMware and Applogic from 3Tera.
