What is a Cloud Server?

The term cloud server refers to a type of server that runs in a cloud computing environment. Providing cloud server hosting, these servers are built and run online, and can be easily accessed remotely – with no need for teams to visit a physical server location. This provides a wide range of benefits to busy IT teams who need a server they can rely on. Cloud server hosting tends to be reliable, stable and secure, and the service offered is lightning quick. They’re also cost-effective to run, and fully scalable for complete future-proofing.

Cloud Server FAQs

How to choose a cloud server?

Before you choose a cloud server, there are a few different factors you’ll want to consider. While there may be a number of different cloud server options available that meet your needs, it’s worth doing your research to find the best one. As you examine the options, think about issues like uptime, customer support, pricing, private server capabilities, infrastructure design and the setup of any relevant backup data centers. Our team of experts can help you choose the best cloud server to fit your needs.

Is a cloud server secure?

Cloud servers are well known for their security and stability, but that doesn’t mean that you can be complacent when using one. Like any server, a cloud server is vulnerable if it is not managed and monitored correctly, with our expert-driven team you can count on your cloud server’s security.

When should a cloud server be used?

Cloud servers should be used in specific circumstances, in order to gain the best benefits from these resources. We recommend using cloud servers to divide physical servers, such as bare metal servers, into a number of different virtual options. This expands the capabilities of the bare metal server and enables faster processing of information as and when needed. Doing so also enables remote access of many key server functions.

How is a cloud server different from dedicated servers?

A cloud server is quite different from more traditional options such as dedicated servers. Cloud servers are, by their very nature, virtual, whereas dedicated servers are not. This means that cloud servers can be scaled more easily than dedicated servers. However, dedicated servers tend to offer better security provision than cloud-based counterparts. There is no sharing of resources with a dedicated server, however if a business needs to expand its provision quickly, cloud-based servers are often preferable.
