As a Cloud Hosting Provider (CHP), we often get asked about cloud hosting and what it really means. In simple terms, cloud hosting refers to the hosting of your data and/or applications on servers that are located in a remote data centre, rather than on-site at your own premises.
The responsibility of a CHP
The cloud hosting provider (us in this case) is responsible for maintaining and securing the servers, as well as providing the necessary resources such as processing power, storage, backup and bandwidth. This means that you don’t need to worry about investing in expensive on-site hardware and the IT staff required to manage it.
Why is cloud different to on-site?
So, why is cloud hosting different to on-site hosting? Well, firstly, cloud hosting is typically a more flexible and scalable solution. With on-site hosting, you are limited by the physical capacity of your hardware, whereas with cloud hosting, you can easily upgrade or downgrade your resources depending on your needs. This means that you can quickly adapt to changes in demand and only pay for what you use.
Cloud hosting can also offer greater reliability and resilience than on-site hosting. For example, the Quadris Cloud platform operates over multiple servers in different locations across the UK, so if one server fails, your data and applications will automatically be available on another server. This means that you can be confident that your data is always available and protected, even in the event of a disaster.
Finally, cloud hosting offers greater security than on-site hosting. As a cloud hosting provider, we have strict security measures in place, such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and regular security audits. This means that your data is protected from cyber threats, and you can be confident that the necessary steps are in place to keep your data safe.
