Everyone is trying to cut down on cost. Storing data, specifically, requires a lot of money, management, and resources but thankfully there is a new way to start storing data. Cloud Computing is the use of a remote server hosted on the internet to store, manage, and process data with high scalability.
There are many benefits to using cloud computing. You simply get more of everything.
Scalability is the capacity to be changed in size or in scale. Having the ability to scale your remote servers is the first major benefit to using cloud computing. There are different types of scalability, and we can help you to choose which one is right for you!
Vertical Scaling is the ability to increase the capacity of the existing server in order to accommodate increasing workload volumes. It can be done easily and requires no changes to any of the existing code! However, with vertical scaling, it is limited to only being as big as the capacity of the server.
Horizontal Scaling has the ability to scale wider in order to deal with more traffic. This means adding more servers to the already existing amount of servers. It cannot be as easily done as vertical scaling.
With the best of both worlds, Diagonal scaling combines vertical and horizontal scaling. Diagonal scaling delivers flexibility for workloads that require additional storage resources for different instances of time. An example of diagonal scaling would be setting up diagonal scaling for when website traffic increases and remove diagonal scaling when traffic decreases.
Managing data on physical servers can be time-consuming with the constant need to troubleshoot them. Cloud computing, on the other hand, is self contained and can take care of itself.
Not having to buy physical servers with all the racks and wires that go with it saves money but also power since servers must be stored in a cool place to prevent overheating. These savings on physical devices can be reinvested into the company and be used to help grow your business even more.
