Frequently asked questions

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing describes the delivery of on-demand computing services like applications, processing power, and storage from a state of the art data center. So when you sign up for cloud computing services, you rent enterprise computing infrastructure to power your physical and virtual business operations.

What is managed cloud hosting?

A managed cloud hosting services provider offers the use of virtual hardware, network, storage, and composite solutions from their state of the art data center. cloud computing services like this enable untapped flexibility and on-demand hosted resources at scale. This cloud services model may combine the capacity of several servers to provide a single cloud-hosted server to ensure low latency.

What are the different types of cloud computing?

There are three main cloud computing services models. But for the most part, it comes down to a pay-as-you-use model or a fixed-term pricing model that allows you to add/ remove resources and manage data usages and accounts through dashboards or applications.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is the basic layer of cloud computing and allows you to set up virtual servers and storage in a data centre.

Platform as a Service (PaaS) is a set of tools and services which make it easier for businesses to develop, run and manage applications without building and maintaining the infrastructure typically needed.

Software as a Service (Saas)
is a way of delivering applications over the internet as a service. It is software that is owned, delivered and managed remotely by providers.

Which Cloud service provider should I use?
