Computers may not rule the world, but with the space some server rooms take up– it sure seems like they rule the work space!
Fortunately, the computer world keeps evolving. That means that you can put an end to those server rooms and the energy that they drain. The newest cloud computing development is cloud VPS hosting, and it is ready to bring the sun to your day.
What is the Cloud?
If you haven’t heard of “the cloud” you’ll be forgiven for thinking that it is the name of Marvel’s newest superhero!
Cloud computing offers users the opportunity to store information off site on a server by a company that specializes in server management. These companies make sure that the data is backed up, and that means that the information stored on the cloud should be accessible for the foreseeable future. It also means that there is no expense in upgrading servers and no worry if a server goes down.
Cloud VPS Hosting
While cloud computing can deal with individual users and their programs, cloud VPS hosting is when a company has their server system hosted by another company. “VPS” stands for “virtual private servers.” These servers are held private for the company that pays for them. That means that there are no other companies on the same server and so there is less of a chance of someone hacking into them. Because the digital assets are hosted by a company with security experience, a VPS hosting system is probably more secure than a company’s own server protection can be.
Back to the Future
For some companies, moving to a cloud VPS hosting system can cause butterflies in the stomachs and flutters in the hearts of senior management. It is always hard to let go of control, especially when you aren’t exactly sure what it is that you are letting go. That loss of power coupled with the loss of control over specific company secrets may cause even the hardiest of CEOs to blanch. It is important to do the research on the company that will be hosting the server service and pay close attention to your cloud computing SLA.
There may also be a problem with your company’s current servers. It can be difficult to take all of that information from those servers and move them into the cloud. A close study of the time that it would take to move that information will give a clear view of the financial cost of such a move. Companies may be able to make their own cloud, but it is complex and not as secure as an offsite manager.
Cloud VPS hosting can solve a multitude of company issues that are centered around computing problems, storage, and data safety. A server stored off site will ensure that the data survives if something happens to the place of business. Upgrades and new servers also become much cheaper when someone else is in charge of taking care of the system.
