					                      What is Cloud Computing?
The cloud is more popular than ever and now most of us, including my grandmother, is
information that is hosted somewhere in the clouds. As a consumer Gmail, Facebook,
Twitter messages, or photos on Flickr think - just some of the common name of cloud
services.

But for my company, Cloud Computing really means what? What are the benefits? And
how can I apply for a hosting company Cloud?

Currently the most common technology called hosting Shared hosting. Cloud property,
the next generation of shared hosting, where instead of sharing by multiple customers,
applications and websites are viewed on a single physical machine, hosted customer
information across multiple websites and applications that are part of a large physical
server "farm" of machines are connected by the works called virtualization technology.

Benefits of Cloud Hosting

With this approach, multiple clients can be filled with fewer servers, less material, energy
and materials handling. This in turn reduces the price of accommodation and will likely
continue to fall. In addition, pay as you go. Yes, if the gas, water, electricity ... To
increase or you can reduce the capacity as the traffic moves up and down (Benefit # 1, it
is more convenient).

Because the data can be easily added and removed from the network from one server to
another, and the machine, it means that your sites, applications and data is always online
and do not suffer from the closures and maintenance incidents. The Hosting Cloud, you
can expect 99.9%, 100%, but let's be careful! (Availability of Benefit No. 2, the better).

With cloud technologies that use resources more efficiently and faster, which means that
they feed on demand, or peak of the activity or growth requirements of regular use. With
cloud hosting, you avoid the risk of the traffic over your limit (measure 3, the scalability
and flexibility).

stored in the public, the center of the cloud data, the data in multiple copies on multiple
servers as one server fails, applications and data are always safe and available. In fact, not
even notice that something has gone wrong, even at a time! (Order No. 4, reliability)

What are the disadvantages?

Cloud perceived disadvantages of social housing are security risks and loss of control.
Some companies tend to think that if their applications and data outside its scope, they
are not safe or risk losing control. could without too much detail, we believe that this is a
widespread perception wrong and the vast majority of hosting companies offer a security
level of a cloud, which is usually afford most companies.
Another problem is the loss of control and confidentiality. Many companies do not have
to worry if the information is sensitive and / or work in a highly regulated environment.
In these cases, you should consider a private cloud of respect for the achievement of the
confidentiality and integrity of data easier. This is especially important if you meet legal
requirements such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and PCI DSS to need to name a few.

Another way of thinking is a hybrid of public and private clouds, but there may be some
issues related to interoperability and portability that are outside of this post increase.

How to choose a hosting company Cloud?

In most scenarios, the benefits of choosing a much larger cloud hosting Sorry, but you
need accommodation to choose a reputable company. The most popular choices are the
giants such as Amazon Web Services and Rackspace NetDepot, but you should also
smaller companies in a position to provide a personal service and are often cheaper.

What are some things that you in the eye before you have your choice should be:

Make a team of technical support and customer service. Call customer service to
understand how to manage their activities. See how quickly and skillfully respond to
them (check # 1, Customer Service).

You need an open platform and flexible to your individual needs. Open standards not
only provide an easy migration from traditional solutions (such as dedicated hosting), but
neither the blocks (open Check # 2) You or your data in the cloud.

The market is highly competitive and aggressive suppliers for new customers. Both sets
of declaration and registration should be available with a minimum billing period, only a
few minutes (check # 3, compare the price).

Most companies offer high availability and performance of the SLA. Your servers and
modern infrastructure, a high degree of redundancy and a service level agreement of
99.9% should be given (# 4 Check SLA).

You should be able to shadow the server via a web interface that a full API access to a
smooth transition if you decide later to ensure supplier management changes. Security
and guarantees data integrity and confidentiality must also be a part of your checklist (see
# 5, security and a way out!).
