I'm an owner of a dedicated server, and today me and my workmate started to talk about the future for our business, and started to wondering, what we should do, when we need a better server.
And then I have some questions, you maybe can answer, 'cloud hosting' is getting bigger and bigger - But the prices for cloud hosting is, when you calculate ressources, cloud computing somehow may be more expensive than a dedicated server, but really, what's the difference in performance?
I'm thinking like, a dedicated server, if you're running on that, you can have a great amount of processor-power and RAM and disk space. If you get a peak you'll be limited to that dedicated server.
Here at my host, we have something called Express and Premium Cloud hosting.
Processor: 2.0Ghz 4 Cores
Disk space: 160GB SATA RAID 6
Uplink: 1000Mbps Full-Duplex
Processor: 2.8Ghz Dual Core
Disk Space: 2x 250GB SATA2 (No raid)
Uplink: 100Mbps Full-Duplex
I normally use cpanel/WHM to manage my server, and softaculous for application installs.
Will that run on cloud hosting? Why Should I choose cloud hosting before dedicated..
I'm living in europe, my customers are in Europe, what cloud hosts can you recommend, what is the general price, will it be scalable?
Should our next server be cloud or a dedicated?
