What is a Hosting Server?
Hosting servers have become incredibly popular over the past couple of years. Server providers offer different options for hosting; shared or dedicated hosting of services to clients. It leverages the power of several interconnected hosting servers spread over a cluster to run your website and applications.
The three main hosting servers available are: Shared web hosting where a number of websites are hosted on the same server, Dedicated web hosting where an entire server is leased and reserved for a single Web site and Virtual Private Server hosting, a combination of the first two options in which a Web site is hosted on its own virtual server so that it won’t be affected by the Web sites of other customers.
What are the hosted services?
Hosted services are technology services offered by a provider hosting physical servers that are removed from the customer’s premise. Hosted applications are typically purchased and owned by your business, installed on a remote server and accessed over a secure network connection using client software installed on the user’s device. These applications are not typically web-enabled and require network infrastructure capable of running a virtual private network (VPN) and enabling software such as Remote Desktop/Terminal Services or Citrix. This requires the software client to be installed on a workstation and is accessed through a client workstation link such as remote desktop, etc.
What are the Cloud services?
Cloud applications are web-enabled, meaning, instead of being based on physical hardware, they are based in a shared virtual environment managed by a cloud-hosting provider. The cloud hosting server model deploys virtualization technology that prevents data from leaking from one user to the other. Besides, the physical servers underlying the virtualized server are placed in well- guarded data centers; these data centers are equipped with a range of physical security and cyber security measures to keep your data safeguarded from the unsolicited intrusion of any kind. To avoid risks of data loss, cloud backups are created over several bare metal servers.
How to decide which is the best server?
Both dedicated and cloud servers comprise different sets of features and facilities. Cloud hosting provides scalability at a vast scale as compared to hosting servers. This is a treat for those users who have customers with demands changing on a daily basis. So basically one can scale up or down easily with cloud hosting and meet the flexibility in their demands. The best part of cloud hosting is the low initial investment as one just needs to pay for what they are using and nothing extra. Such flexibility and resilience at such low investment is the real deal. The major difference between cloud and server is that in the cloud you will be sharing the computing power while in a hosting server a server will be completely dedicated to you.
What is Hosted ERP?
Hosted ERP software applications are off site and typically a business own as an asset. For Hosted ERP software applications you are required to purchase the software licenses, but they are hosted by the software provider.. Hosted ERP software is accessed through a VPN (Virtual Private Network) and remote desktop or terminal services.
