Cloud Computing With UKFast?
Cloud computing (also referred to as cloud hosting) is an easily scalable mode of hosting where virtualised resources are provided as a service over the internet.
The cloud is a centralised resource of RAM, CPUs, storage, bandwidth and software. Your website for instance, sits in a virtual space, isolated from any individual hardware component, but with direct access to the power of this collective resource (technically referred to as clustered servers).
So in a nutshell you share the processing speed, power, memory and hard drives of the cloud and all servers can be easily interchanged. Enabling you to proactively add and remove resources as required.
Cloud computing means your hosting can be quickly and easily tailored as the needs of your business evolve.
Why host using cloud computing?
Because the cloud can quickly scale to make more or less resources available as they are needed, cloud computing customers never need to worry about buying new hardware to meet increasing traffic demands or huge traffic spikes.
Cloud computing is most frequently used to host websites, for online file storage and/or application hosting by companies looking to improve efficiencies, maximise availability whilst remaining cost effective.
