  • Is Cloud Hosting still "hype" or do you prefer it over other services now?

    I had Cloud VPS hosting services with several different providers in the past and didn't always get the 100% uptime like the provider claimed they offered. Instead, I would get better uptime with other providers using standard Web, Reseller and VPS hosting services and so always preferred to use them.

    While OVH Cloud VPS may have better uptime (they have an excellent network) I find their SSD VPS range is much faster and so prefer to use that range instead.

    Also, many providers claim they offer Cloud hosting when they do not offer TRUE 100% Cloud hosting. Do you know of any big name providers who offer proper Cloud hosting?

    Having a Real Cloud Hosting requires proper requirements.

    So far I've never come Across. A Real Cloud Hosting does not even need to offer Backup Service.

    We would be offering soon.

      Azure with HA and everything. I haven't tried Amazon or Google.

        l believe the term cloud is way over used, not just in hosting, its everywhere and mostly just hype! There a few exceptions out there though.

          I think its starting to become a bit more of the norm over the past few years,but was over-hyped when they first started to introduce it.

            Enterprises not ready for cloud migration

            Another part of the problem is many firms fail to appreciate how much preparatory work they need to do to make their cloud migration projects a success.

            “Initially, people thought they were just going to be able to magically upload their code, things would run and they wouldn’t have to worry about anything, but not all companies are really shaped in a way that lets them take advantage of the cloud,” said Padilla.

            “They might not be set up to cope with the variable and dynamic costs of cloud, and their procurement departments might not be ready to run platforms on a bunch of different environments.”

            Some users are labouring under the misconception that moving to the cloud needs to happen all at once, he added – even if not all their apps and workloads are ready to go off-premise yet. No place for PaaS.

            The survey also shed some light on the types of cloud environments ICT decision makers prefer to run their most important apps on, with private infrastructure as a service (private IaaS) emerging as the most popular among those surveyed with 33% of the vote.
            This was followed by software as a service (SaaS) (19%); managed hosting (18%); public IaaS (15%); platform as a service (PaaS) (10%); and co-location (5%).

            The report highlighted a lack of support for PaaS, with the authors hailing it as proof that it has so far failed to capture the imagination of ICT decision-makers when considering where best to run their apps.

            “As the appetite for mobility and big data insights grows, the picture could change. However, at least for now, our results suggest that PaaS providers still have a long way to go to build confidence in this platform in the enterprise,” the NTT Communications report states. Legacy puts up obstacles to cloud adoption.

            PaaS can be difficult for long-established companies to adopt as they have so much legacy technology still in use. This makes the cloud a better fit for startups.

            But for enterprises keen to rid themselves of the hassle of building and maintaining their own app deployment infrastructure, the PaaS approach has a number of benefits.

            “It means they can focus on whatever the business problem is at hand, and stop thinking about managing installations of the run-time and having to care for and feed their own application servers,” said Padilla.

            “There is a lot to be gained from this approach, but it does require a very different mindset – the enterprise will need to get used to not having the same level of control as it may be used to.”
