Cloud hosting is all the rave?!

Postby martin_five » Mon May 23, 2011 6:28 pm

It seems that cloud hosting was always around, just not many were using it I suppose. Now when you browse the web every ad you see will have something about cloud hosting or grid hosting in the ad. Why the sudden popularity?

See, let me put it in very simple terms to help you up with understanding, it is clearly not just always around thing which you said. It was a lot to do with PRICE, as we are moving ahead there are things which previously were available but wasn’t into used was mainly to do it being available for big players and had high tag of price. However, now we can witness a lot of freebies and actually quality hosting at cheap and affordable rates, so now there is better awareness but also better DEALS, it is why many people have it.

In fact, as per latest trend and actually need too, it is CDN that’s most wanted. I too have BitsNGo which really works as an all-rounder for me due to ensuring better security while with a lot of traffic coming from the A-Tier locations like North America and Europe, it has really cut down the load time and boosted site, and it’s all at highly affordable rates. More importantly, it’s with Pay for what we use with 100% Transparency and No Commitments or Hidden setup!

I think it is because there was new software developed for cloud hosting, OpenNebula, OpenStack and many others.
And cloud hosting have its big advantages, mainly redundancy and high uptime i think. Drawback is a bit higher cost i think.

In some way, I agree, based on personal experience of use, but I will say that in the future it may be good ideas, but now of course not. If we are interested in the speed of data processing and the work of the sites, then it is better to use hosting with SSD-based powers like
