Cloud hosting is a boon for small and medium businesses. You do not need to invest in any additional hardware or software for cloud computing implementation. Cloud hosting organizations charge their users based on the number of computing power used i.e. its pay-per-use.
You experience complete versatility with dynamic and precise allocation of all computing resources as per your specifications. It is the advantage of scalability that makes cloud hosting successful. Enhanced scalability assures users to access extra computing resources to meet improved application loads.
Cloud hosting services make hardware upgrades, load balancing, and maintenance sessions across servers secure. Cloud servers are very safe. But as these servers are shared by various users they may slow down in comparison to a dedicated server that is available only by users of your company.
