Cloud Hosting Becoming Increasingly Vital
Cloud hosting is a relatively new technology that allows websites to better allocate their bandwidth and to provide better services to their customers. According to a report released by Hosting.com, cloud hosting is becoming increasingly popular and customers are demanding that the cloud hosting services that they purchase do not require them to radically change their current practices.
The 2020 Cloud Industry Trends and Best Practices Report revealed some significant information about the people who are using the service and what they expect out of it. The report was based upon a survey of approximately 600 people who are involved in the IT industry, either as executives or as IT professionals themselves.
One of the most important reasons that businesses are moving over to cloud hosting has to do with reliability. In fact, among those surveyed, this is listed as the top reason that they were considering cloud hosting. Cloud hosting allows resources to be allocated as needed and allows greater reliability, as there is more than one server machine involved in providing the website. In fact, a full 80% of the people surveyed believe that cloud hosting could replace their physical servers. Considering the fact that most large companies either have a physical server housed at a web hosting company or one on the premises of their own business, this is an enormous development.
Businesses, of course, have to take into account the cost of making any major changes to their IT infrastructure. One of the ways that they expect cloud hosting to accommodate this need is by providing a service that can be integrated into their existing services. For the web hosting companies that provide these services, this will, no doubt, become a major concern in their sales models. Generally speaking, the easier the cloud hosting service can be integrated into any company’s existing IT infrastructure the more likely they are to consider it as a serious and necessary option for their future webpage needs.
Almost half of the respondents indicated that cloud hosting was a priority for their businesses. This is really no surprise, considering the fact that websites have consistently become more sophisticated and need to deliver more content to their visitors. To ensure that their customers always have the optimal experience at their website, more and more businesses are considering cloud hosting as an important part of their future on the Internet. There are many different web hosts that offer this service and, if you want to keep your business on the cutting edge, it may be worthwhile to discuss it with yours.
