    How Cloud Hosting Differs From Dedicated

    Can any body tell me what is the real difference between cloud hosting and dedicated hosting as I was approached by a web hosting company and was told that I can convert my dedicated server to cloud and the cost will be 1.5 times more. I am curious as why the cloud is so expensive and should I go for it.

    The basic difference, from what I have been able to figure out, is that a dedicated server is just one single piece of physical equipment whereas a cloud hosting service is a virtual entity. A cloud host resides on a whole network of hardware. The main idea behind a cloud host is that data is replicated over many nodes on the network so when any one piece of hardware fails, other parts of the cloud network will move in to fill the gap. Of course this involves a lot more equipment, so the cost of cloud hosting goes up. As to whether you should go for cloud hosting, it depends on your needs. Do you need 100% uptime? And can you afford it?

    Well said Victor, I couldn't say better myself. Cloud's are basically clouds, haha, they're there for guaranteed uptime and amazing speeds, instead of having a server room, you have a single computer that manages a virtual network.

    Cloud hosting has many advantages over the shared hosting services and sometimes performs better than dedicated hosting solutions and Cloud Hosting allow you to create and manage your own cloud based virtual servers with the Cloud Controller.

    Re: How Cloud Hosting Differs From Dedicated

    Cloud hosting is essentially synonymous with the Internet, so like the Internet you can access your data from anywhere in the world. All this at a relatively low cost too, which is typically pay per usage. It’s extremely reliable, because even if one of the connected servers goes down, the other servers will maintain hosting.
    A dedicated server is exactly how it sounds – a server that someone buys or leases to manage all the data. It’s kind of like using your personal computer, but on a much grander scale. This is the most traditional route for hosting.

    Cloud hosting is also referred to as server on-demand hosting, cloud server hosting or cluster server hosting. It can be used for hosting websites, sending and storing emails, and distributing web-based applications and other service whereas Dedicated servers are much safer and offer better performance because the connections are direct.

    Cloud Servers
    These are a great option for businesses that need to optimise IT performance without the huge costs associated with purchasing and managing a fully dedicated infrastructure. For this reason they are a popular choice for small and mid-sized businesses, and those with variable demands and workloads.

    Cloud servers can be configured to provide a similar level of performance, security and control of a dedicated server, but instead of being hosted on physical hardware that’s solely dedicated to you they reside on a shared “virtualised” environment managed by your cloud hosting provider, meaning that you benefit from the economies of scale of sharing hardware with other customers.

    Dedicated servers
    A dedicated server is a physical server that is purchased or rented entirely for your own business needs, making it a great solution for large businesses, those that for regulatory reasons require exceptionally high levels of data security, or organisations that have predictable demand necessitating all of their servers running 24/7/365.Businesses would typically need the IT capacity and expertise to manage the ongoing maintenance..

    Whilst there is much debate as to the value of dedicated servers in the new world of Cloud, the reality is that there is still very much a need for bare metal dedicated hardware as businesses grapple with increased use of I/O-heavy applications such as databases and Big Data platforms.

    Cloud hosting has many advantages, which is why it has become so popular. It’s extremely reliable, because even if one of the connected servers goes down, the other servers will maintain hosting. Because the cloud is run on multiple servers, you can easily add more servers enabling seemingly endless scalability. A dedicated server is exactly how it sounds – a server that someone buys or leases to manage all the data.

    Cloud servers are often designed to supply the same level of performance, security and management of an avid server, however rather than being hosted on physical hardware that’s entirely dedicated to you they reside on a shared “virtualised” atmosphere managed by your cloud hosting supplier, which means that you just enjoy the economies of scale of sharing hardware with different customers.
