This month we are looking at Cloud Hosting.

How does it really work?

Cloud server hosting is best described as keeping a server at a data centre, which is stored offsite and yet accessible remotely from anywhere.

Cloud Server Hosting - QuickBooks

What is a Data Centre?

This is a centralized, physical or virtual repository that stores, manages and disseminates information organized around a particular body of knowledge or pertaining to a specific business.

Typically, it involves storing, processing and serving large amounts of mission-critical data to users in client-server architecture. Moreover, the data centre has extensive redundant or backup:

  • Cooling systems
  • Networking connections
  • Policy-based security systems
  • Power supply systems

Together, these can run all of the enterprise’s core applications.
