Cloud web hosting is the ideal solution for those who require more space than you can get from traditional web hosting options. Fast growing businesses will benefit greatly from cloud web hosting as this style of web hosting means that your hosting will grow with the needs of your business. There are less fixed limits of resources. Cloud web hosting is part of a revolution in data storage, with many businesses turning to cloud web hosting as their ideal solution.

It’s the economic option too – you only need to pay for your exact cloud web hosting needs, rather than having to make estimates of what you think you will need.

There are different cloud web hosting options to choose from including public, private and hybrid options. Public web hosting is your traditional general option with resources publicly available across the internet. Private web hosting is a great option for companies, allowing a private network access to cloud hosting space. It is private as it is usually behind a firewall. This gives companies that great, convenient and economical option of cloud web hosting, with all the advantages of a private network.

The hybrid option is a combination of the two – public and private. This option offers regulated use of the hosting services but with the cost effective model of public cloud web hosting.

Whatever your business needs, this is an ideal web hosting choice, maximising the use of resources and utilising cutting edge web hosting technology to help your business grow online.

Evaluating Linux Server http://www.linux-quebec.org/evaluating-linux-server/ http://www.linux-quebec.org/evaluating-linux-server/#respond Sun, 19 Feb 2012 20:21:11 +0000 http://oneclick.i.biz/instances/www.linux-quebec.org/?p=59 As Linux gains acceptance as a desktop operating system, IT professionals in growing numbers are evaluating Linux server applications. How does Linux measure up to Windows server platforms? Is Linux server ready for the data center? Here are seven key areas of comparison between the two that should help the evaluation process.

Performance: Linux server platforms are far less resource-intensive than their Windows counterparts. With the operating system making fewer demands on processor and memory, servers running on Linux typically show a higher level of performance for the crucial apps they host.

Cost: Linux is essentially a free operating system. Even Red Hat, the primary commercial Linux server distro, is comparatively inexpensive. This is especially true when contrasted to Windows server platforms, with expensive per-server and per-seat licensing and costly software assurance packages.

Security: Both Windows and Linux server have their security drawbacks. Most hacks and exploits are written to target Windows servers. On the other hand, Windows server platforms have better user access control right out of the box, while Linux platforms require a separate application to gain a finer level of control over permissions.

Uptime: Everyone who has ever used Windows at home or in the server room has disaster stories. Services hang, apps crash and then there’s the infamous “blue screen of death.” Microsoft has improved Windows’ uptime, but it can’t compare to the lightweight stability offered by Linux server.

Updates: Depending on the choice of Linux server distro, Linux updates may be right on schedule and dependable or they could be spotty and untested. Since Microsoft is the only source of Windows updates, their monthly server OS updates are typically more timely and reliable on the whole.

Skill: Linux server skills are far more specialized, especially with the ability to alter the system kernel inherent in Linux but unavailable in Windows. It may be tougher to find Linux server admins or at least more expensive.

Vmware: Virtualization in the data center is a booming industry and Linux is a big part of it. Linux is so integral to Vmware that a flavor of Linux is packaged with the Vmware server installer. There is simply no reason at all to use Windows server to host a Vmware environment.
