The modern technological landscape has been improving on a daily basis. It is true that there is room for progress and innovation in the hosting hemisphere. But this industry has not yet reached its pinnacle of success. So we can solely depend on the future to know where cloud computing and web hosting will stand.
Adopting Cloud Hosting
Enterprises across the globe are speedily transitioning to the Cloud. This has overshadowed the demand for traditional shared server hosting environments. As a matter of fact, shared and dedicated hosting is insufficient to cater to the growing data demands. As a result, clients end up paying through their noses for expandable web space on the server. On the other hand, an increasing number of companies are transferring workloads and applications onto the cloud.
According to a report published by Gartner, by 2015, at least 20% of all cloud services will be consumed via internal or external cloud service brokerages, rather than directly, up from less than 5% today. Another report by research firm MarketsandMarkets revealed that the rapid overall growth of cloud hosting has led the industry to expect a valuation of about $121 billion dollars by the end of 2015. Besides, businesses will experience further objectivity in both software and hardware technologies and small businesses need to incorporate new technologies to begin the shift to the Cloud.
How Can Bare Metal Cloud Beat Virtualisation for A Web Host
The amalgamation of virtualization and cloud has led to many technological developments. On the other hand, Web hosting necessitates performance, stability, availability and most important of all, predictability. This makes a virtualized cloud the best platform for your business. It is scalable and helps you to achieve a perfect web hosting environment. Such bare metal clouds also enable a flexible implementation of the traditional server cluster model. So your business can deploy and scale dedicated server clusters.
This shift also presents some problems such as follows:
- Multiple bare metal servers (in thousands) cannot be deployed in a click
- Cloud platforms rely on virtualization but are not as cost-effective yet as the already established Web Hosting models
- A server without the hypervisor, guest operating systems and with just the server OS & services is nothing but a component of a bare metal cloud
- This server performs better any day
Web hosting scenarios do not need second to second billing and elasticity for rapid scaling atop short timescales
Honestly speaking, bare metal clouds are optimal for businesses depending on web hosting scenarios. An issue which remains is that web hosts require the infrastructure to be efficiently used. Only then the set up can render the best possible performance in terms of reliability for predictable scaling. So, one has to pay a certain price to avail the benefits of a virtualized cloud platforms.
