Running a business in a digital world is no easy feat. With technology constantly evolving, companies need to continually find better and more cost-effective ways of operating and growing to reach their goals. But keeping up with advances in technology often means spending more and more time and money in setting up, running and maintaining infrastructure.
Thankfully running on-premises hardware for your technology is not the only option available. Cloud hosting on Virtual Private Servers offers your business the opportunity to diversify your systems, upgrade your servers, and make use of world-class technology, all without needing to manage or maintain your own infrastructure. It’s a modern, effective, and economical solution for businesses of all sizes.
Think of your existing infrastructure – physical machines and servers with memory, CPU, storage space, and all of your software installed on them. Now imagine being able to easily access that software and storage securely from any machine, anywhere in the world. And, as an added bonus, imagine that the hardware for your servers does not even need to be stored on-premises. This is cloud hosting.
With cloud server hosting, your business software, apps, data and website can be stored on a Virtual Private Server (VPS), managed and maintained by a cloud service provider like GRIAM. You don’t need to worry about setup, upkeep and maintenance – it is all handled on your behalf.
Instead of relying on a single physical server in your office to manage your business operations, your data will be stored on multiple interconnected cloud servers spread around the country to ensure that your services remain online even in the event of an outage, or a singular server failure. Since your RAM, CPU, backups, and other critical data are hosted on the cloud, when an outage does occur, new cloud hosting servers can be activated, and backups can be restored in a few minutes — ensuring almost zero downtime.
While cloud hosting services can be accessed from any machine, the components that your VPS uses are entirely separate from your device’s memory and processing capacity. This makes cloud hosting perfect for testing new apps and systems without disturbing your existing hardware or processes.
