Cloud Server Hosting or Dedicated Server Hosting

bodHOST" | Cloud. Down to earth. CLOUD SERVER HOSTING DEDICATED SERVER HOSTING VS Looking at multiple hosting services, you might get confused on which one is the perfect for your business. Significantly, there are two major options. One of them is a traditional one, Dedicated Server Hosting and other is a just born, Cloud Server Hosting. Again, the question arises that which one would be better? Here's an infographic representing the differences be- tween the two depending on the qualities they own. DEFINITION In Cloud Server Hosting, the server is outsourced and is run on virtualized software, leading to production of many instances of virtual servers converting one server into many. Dedicated Server Hosting is a traditional way where- in a simple protocol is followed in which the user buys a server from a provider and pays a monthly charges. PERFORMANCE Resources like CPU, servers, storage and network connections are shared in cloud server hosting and so there isn't a guaranteed uptime 24*7. The CPU, disk IO and network connections of a server are dedicated to a single user and therefore, there is guaranteed uptime 24*7. SCALABILITY The user can upgrade and downgrade the servers. Migration of cloud server on physical server is possi- ble without any downtime through hot swapping. In order to migrate to other physical server, either re- booting is essential where there might be downtime. Or if there are load balanced servers, one doesn't need to reboot the system. RELIABILITY High-availability solution is easy and less expensive on a cloud server. While it's hard to get high-availability solution and is quite expensive on a dedicated server. COSTS Pay-as-you-use model payment. User needs to pay the fixed monthly usage rate even when 100% of the available resources aren't used.
