Explained: hardware servers vs cloud hosting.

As much as your business grows, as much computer power is needed. The separate servers in the datacenters  and VPS’ become inefficient, and slowly loose the battle with the Cloud Hosting.

There will be no more calls about: “Please restart my database server …” – the server is suffering due to the recently started marketing campaign.

There will be no more answers like: “Unfortunately the hardware is not supporting more than 8GB RAM. You have to migrate to a new server.” – migrate to cloud hosting if needed.

There will be no more begging : “My website is under DDoS attack.. my server has lack of resources and the services are dying all the time!!   Please help me solve this problem” – move the slide,  put more power to your server, that’s it! Now calm down.

Please spend a couple of minutes to check this really good Cloud Hosting Explanation:

1. Scalability – as big as you want
2. Instant – you are not waiting for hardware to be assembled
3. Save money – pay as much as you use

Here I will add one not mentioned in the video:

4. More safe for your data – cloud servers use storage resources shared with others set on heavy RAID massive, and even if a hard drive fails, you will not even understand while RAID is rebuilding.

So, no more explanations like: “Your hard drive just died, and the engineers in the datacenter are trying to clone it. Hopefully your data will be save! ” – cross fingers, pray to your Lord, hopefully your data will be save.. to go to cloud server.

Hope this video helped you to understand and decide when you go cloud hosting vs hardware servers
