When To Upgrade Your Dedicated Server to Public Cloud?

With the changing trends of the industry, businesses hosted on a high performing hosting solution like dedicated hosting needs upgradation to become more efficient with the new technology – Public Cloud.

Public cloud is the most identifiable form of cloud computing in which public cloud provider renders services like servers, application, infrastructure, storage and other resources to companies in virtualized environment over the internet. An adoption of public cloud is accelerating and is considered the best solution for certain cases, when a need arises for decreased hardware costs, immediate scalability of resources and increased accessibility.

The 5 key reasons indicative of an upgradation from dedicated server hosting to cloud hosting are as follows:

  • Utmost utilization of resources with decreased costs

Dedicated server is an ideal hosting solution; where you have to pay a consistent and high amount for its resources and benefits irrespective of the actual utilization. You don’t have to bear high capital costs as it is flexible having resource based billing and you are billed for the resources which you actually procure.

Public cloud servers eliminate the need of upgradation as you get the most out of your existing IT system. It is a multi-tenant environment offering multiple users to share computing resources and thus making it cost efficient as infrastructure costs are shared among all the users.

  • Easy adaption to the evolving business scenario

If you want your company to  grow in real terms, then the key to success is its ability to accommodate substantial efflux and influx of traffic or else it would crash and burn. Dedicated server hosting provides you to scale as per your business need and has some rigid specification which makes scaling a complex and time consuming task.

Public cloud can prepare your business to quickly upscale and downscale resources like computing, network capabilities and storage without breaking the bank for costly upgrades to an existing IT infrastructure. Thus, this benefit model tied with scalability and it is more effective hosting solution than dedicated hosting.

  • Automatic failover environment

A few elements like power equipment, physical disks and memory units can give up sometimes, resulting in the downtime of your site thereby hindering the success of your business with considerable loss in the revenue.

By understanding the importance of uptime of five nines (99.999%) your business needs to customize to public cloud because you had experienced downtime in the previous servers due to disk space or hardware failures.

The public cloud structure is built inherently with fail-first mentality like redundancy and fault tolerance ensures your site and applications are available even in the event of a failure. It has multiple elements to share the load of failed components and you can add CPU power and disk space while server is running.

  • Globally accessible

Public cloud service makes your business accessible from any location via an internet connection and has a set of interconnected servers. This allows remote access to your IT infrastructure online document collaboration.

  • Maintains privacy and backup of all critical data:

Cloud services facilitate easy storage and upload of important files, data, documents, videos where you can access from anywhere around the world. Data is backed  up mechanically by public cloud which facilitates easy maintenance of backup and privacy of all critical data. Therefore, you don’t want to deploy and maintain costly data storage applications.
