Cloud Hosting is technology which seems to have a great scope in the future of hosting.
Cloud hosting means the delivery of hosting resources over the internet. These resources are online storage, social networking and online business and much more. We can say that whatsoever we are doing on the internet, it is all possible through cloud hosting.
Here the third party plays a major role. This third party may provide the client with his desired product. The main advantage of cloud hosting is that it provides a shared pool of resources which include space for data storage, computer processing power and many types of applications.
The various points to be considered in cloud hosting are:
-Cloud provides the service on demand. Here we can say that on the demand of client, the information is provided.
-Cloud provides the broad network access. Here many people all around the world can share the data present on cloud at the same time.
-Resources are pooled in cloud-hosting.
-There is a rapid elasticity and the client gets the services which are of great scale
-The service is measured in the way that the client has to pay for what he uses and for how much time he uses it.
Cloud hosting makes use of three types of service models:
-Software as a service as a model: Here the service in the form of software is provided to the user. Also this software can be in any form like general use softwares and the utilities related to our system.
-Platform as a service as a model: It provides platform to run certain applications and these applications can be in the form of web applications or other.
-Infrastructure as a service as a model: The user cannot afford to buy costly hardware for his use and therefore takes the help of hardware present at remote side to perform his work.
Also there are various types of deployment models concerned in it:
-Private cloud as a deployment controls the cloud and provides the services to the customer.
-Community cloud as a deployment model is developed especially for the community.
-Public cloud as a deployment model is available to whole public and it includes social sites and mail etc.
The different benefits of cloud hosting are:
-It is highly scalable
-It is reliable.
-It is efficient to the great extent.
Of course with many advantages there are disadvantages too. The main disadvantage includes the security. The data which is present on the cloud or some server can be hacked and tampered too. Also the data the client will save on remote location may get subjected to some abnormal predicaments.
Moreover if we look into the scenario deeper than we would find that there are not many countries that support the technology of the cloud and also there is a great cost involved in setting up of servers and to manage them.
On the whole we can say that the cloud hosting has the bright future and saves the cost of both hardware and software. Cloud hosting has the potential of making the life more easier and people will get a great benefit using the services of cloud hosting
