Cloud servers are revolutionizing the entire tech industry, everywhere you go people are talking about the advantages of cloud computing. The fact of the matter is; most people considering switching to cloud servers have to consider two facts:
1. Not all clouds are created equal.
2. Some applications benefit from being converted to cloud more than others.
Any application that runs on a bare-metal server can typically run on a cloud server. The architecture of the server is virtually exactly the same and in most cases cloud applications aren’t even modified to run in a software container. This is great since most application and site owners don’t want to redesign their software every time there is a computing revolution. Because cloud servers can be applied to almost any computing application the real question is: Should I use a cloud server for my application? The answer is if your cloud server requires flexible resource allocation and maximum uptime then a cloud environment is a perfect fit for your application. E-Commerce websites absolutely require both of these features for a great hosting experience. In fact, it’s difficult to think of an application that would benefit more from being run on cloud servers, it’s almost as if cloud computing was the revolution E-Commerce site owners were waiting for.
The cloud computing revolution also means you must pick a cloud provider who has customized their cloud to your needs. At Simple Helix, we specialize in E-Commerce sites and that’s exactly how we built and tuned our cloud. We encourage our customers to compare their cloud hosting experience with other providers to see how we compare.
