What is “The Cloud”?
Simply put, the cloud refers to a web server or a network of web servers whose common goal is to serve up particular web services to users via merely their web browser. Applications in the cloud are simply internet based applications ready to scale and are typically setup in such a manner that upgrades and patches are done quicker and are available application wide to all users instantly.
Cloud computing differs from the classic in-house-server model by providing web based applications from a server that are executed and managed by a client’s web browser. This requires no installation of software and gives cloud service providers complete control over the versions of the browser-based applications provided to clients. Version upgrades and license management is a thing of the past and there is much less incompatibility with individual client computing devices. The term “software as a service” (SaaS) is sometimes used to describe application programs offered through “The Cloud”.
What is Cloud Hosting?
Cloud technologies applied in the hosting environment are designed to be able to scale much quicker as setup, destruction, and configuration of servers may be done on the fly and in virtually a fraction of the time that they used to be done. In short, its web hosting that can be controlled via a web browser instead of being super manual as it has been in the past. Typical cloud hosting providers provide users with more capability to scale than any other solution.
