We have already discussed about Virtual Private Server, Cloud Computing and Cloud Server. If you have noticed Github’s (a repository for the developers) logo near the footer, you will see its saying Github is hosted on Dedicated Cloud Server of Rackspace.
You must have noticed the behavior of Github, the site responds as if it is a local file. Because simply, the server is driven by power of Cloud Computing.
When one can think of Cloud Computing based solution like Dedicated Cloud Hosting ?
Dedicated hosting or virtualized solution? This question depends heavily on the application used and the way the programming done to run the website or application. Not everything will fit for a virtualized environment. There are many reasons, one of them is Database Cluster.
If you thinking to run WordPress based CMS on Cloud computing based platform, it will definitely give a better performance, keeping in mind that the Cloud Computing based hosting providers are using UNIX based system along with it is optimized to run wordPress.
Virtual Dedicated is no doubt a less costly option than Dedicated Cloud Hosting based on Cloud Computing.
Unmanaged Hosting and managed hosting in Cloud Computing based hosting solution
In unmanaged hosting, Servers are either rented from the carrier on a monthly or annual contract basis, which root with full privileges are provided.
When all components of a Cloud Computing based hosting platform like the servers, storage, firewalls, load balancers, etc. are monitored and optimized by the Hosting company’s experts, its managed.
Shared Virtual Hosting in cloud computing scenario
In the world of virtualized platforms, cloud computing separates itself into two main areas. First, in the private cloud computing solution – a dedicated, managed platform with a virtualization layer (like VMware, XEN etc). The other variant is the shared cloud computing solution – a large virtualized platform on which multiple clients are connected.
Example of shared cloud is Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon S3.
As with unmanaged hosting whether it is based on Cloud Computing or not, the customer has no service managers and technicians with whom he can discuss his problems or to plan its growth and design.
As we have said ago on other article on Cloud Computing; Private Cloud Computing has enhanced security. Go for Dedicated Cloud Computing Hosting solution if you need the speed and performance.
