By now most everyone has heard of “the cloud,” but that doesn’t mean everyone understands what it is or how it works and how it compares to Cloud Windows Hosting. It’s really not as complicated as you might think. It’s important to understand this concept because it’s not a passing trend, and it can offer your business many advantages.
Some people think the cloud is just the Internet, but this is a misconception. Basically the cloud consists of tools, infrastructure and software. It allows these things to be contained in a remote place and accessed from anywhere that Internet service is available. It allows users to access data from social networking, webmail services, and most anywhere imaginable on the web.
So what is Cloud Windows hosting? This is also known as Virtual Private Server hosting, and it takes cloud hosting to a whole new level. By combining resources and sharing them over the web, businesses can save money and provide desktop-like performance to users. Dynamic provisioning allows the system to adjust as traffic increases, so that demands are met without impact to function. It saves additional money because there is usually no need to purchase additional hardware to use a cloud server.
In a nutshell, these are the benefits you can expect with Windows Cloud hosting:
- No additional hardware expense
- Daily backups of all applications and data
- Round the clock support services
- Affordable fees on a schedule you can choose: monthly, quarterly, annually
- Virtual desktop performance indistinguishable from actual desktop performance
