Business Cloud Server Hosting
What are Hosted Cloud Solutions?
Dedicated hosted servers are a scenario in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone else. This contrasts to a “cloud server”, which is virtual server solution where space is shared across multiple tenants (customers).
Using a dedicated hosting service offers the benefits of high performance, security, email stability, and control. Relative to cloud hosting, a dedicated or “private cloud” service is more expensive. This is because customers are paying a premium for the added layer of control, security, and flexibility with regards to how their hosted server is operated.
Which is better? Hosted vs Cloud
Both hosted and cloud are a “managed” service, meaning that the business owner isn’t responsible to patching servers and maintaining uptime. Additionally, both options are going to provide businesses with robust options for remote access by workers.
Yet while the common ground is clear, below is a quick snapshot of how the two options will differ in meeting the needs of your business.
