Cloud hosting services are designed to provide reliability that isn’t available with other web hosting services, with uptime guarantees of 100% available with some cloud hosting plans. Even though there is the possibility of network or hardware failure occurring in the cloud, the design of Bodhost’s cloud infrastructure ensures that there is no single point of failure so that is there is network or server failure somewhere within the cloud, there is no noticeable impact on the performance of operation of the cloud as a whole.
When compared to a dedicated server, a cloud virtual machine represents a much more manageable solution because our eNlight Cloud Hosting Services are controlled through a web-based control panel; dedicated servers often lack this level of control, instead many tasks have to be done directly by data center staff that have physical access to the server. Other benefits of choosing the cloud over a dedicated server include:
Larger businesses are going to require the use of a private cloud hosting solution, as this will give them complete control over their hosting infrastructure along with the resources necessary when wanting to consolidate a large number of dedicated servers into the cloud. Although shared cloud hosting is available for businesses of any size, there is a point at which a business’s demands for resources will begin to outstrip what the shared cloud can offer, therefore leaving the only sensible option to be private cloud hosting. Bodhost can provide a private cloud based around your own distinct needs with the number of servers in the cloud depending on the specific resources demanded or the number of dedicated servers that you wish to migrate into the cloud.
As part of our private cloud solutions, Bodhost will provide you with your own eNlight-based cloud hosting cluster that you can then configure as you wish. The eNlight platform can offer you the following benefits:
A private cloud infrastructure requires significant investment because of the number of servers and other physical hardware that will form the cloud. One way in which you can save money is opting to use Bodhost’s 24×7 support team for the management of your cloud as opposed to your own in-house support team; as eNlight is a platform that has been developed by our staff, our support team have full knowledge of the workings of the application meaning that they can rectify issues in no time at all and can work with you to provide customization where required – it will be more beneficial for your business for you to focus your own IT staff on internal matters.
Choosing a private cloud solution from Bodhost will provide your business with a reliable platform on which expansion can be achieved easily and dynamically. There are cost savings to be had from choosing a private cloud over dedicated server hosting or on-site server hosting, releasing money that can be used elsewhere to improve your business’s IT infrastructure or your website.
