A An Analysis Of Cloud Hosting Against Dedicated Server Hosting


With all the talk amongst the business and IT world about cloud computing, as an online business owner, chances are you are scratching your head, wondering what on Earth this cloud solution is exactly, and if it is time to say goodbye to your dedicated servers. As a revolutionary way of handling information transmission, data sharing, and network, many tout cloud computing as the way of the future. It is time to start considering how a cloud engine might the needs of your business, even though the dedicated server does have its advantages.

A cloud can basically be referred to as a network of different computers, servers, or other resources tethered together by a shared function, that can share resources and transfer and receive information across the network. Whether you want to own your own business, or just want a stable job opportunity, there are some long-term options available to you with the cloud.

In terms of what a cloud can do for you as a business, the options are nearly limitless and far more versatility than that of a traditional dedicated server. With advanced functionality, cloud software gives you the ability to “virtualize” many of the daily business processes you must run. For the ability of all users to have instant access to the cloud, and thus be able to start up new processes with ease, functionalities like the cloud control panel now offer solutions. Hypervisor technology is becoming more popular within the “realm of the cloud” as it allows for better functionality and efficiency when running multiple applications or programs during the same “instance”, as sessions spent “in the cloud” are referred to. Cloud search engine programs increase the experience and overall use-friendliness of the cloud.

And now, the one thing that still set dedicated servers apart from the cloud – the private nature of the dedicated server – is not longer an issue. For a virtualized, yet very similar experience to that of the dedicated server, cloud VPS, or Virtual Private Server solutions are now available.

As cloud computing continues to become more important to both business and personal needs, business opportunities continue to arise.

This means that by becoming a cloud solution provider, you can get in on the cutting edge of a healthy new career path. The opportunity to become a “cloud reseller” is also a great employment option to look into.

As opposed to the setup costs of a traditional server hosting company, getting started as a cloud seller requires very little financial input. How this works is that you obtain a number of sessions or instances from a pre-existing cloud computing company, you then turn around and resell these instances to customers, while still able to provide them with the professional services of the original company.This is a mutually beneficial relationship as you get a stable career opportunity and the company you partner with gets a lot more exposure than they would by relying on advertising alone.
