Cloud servers are increasingly being adopted by individual users and organizations to run their core software, store and process data. Corporations or organizations are increasingly getting to the point where they have to make decision on whether to adopt cloud services, how to do it, and which service providers to look to manage their cloud operations. This calls for the management and all decision makers to understand what are cloud servers, what they entail, and what benefit they bring to the firm or organization. CloudPap offers cloud servers to firms all over the world, and is an established and leading provider of cloud computing services. In this article, CloudPap explains what it means to have a cloud server, the difference between cloud and onsite servers, and the technology that is powering CloudPap’s cloud servers.
The term ‘cloud server’ is used to describe a service that allows one to access computing power and storage over the internet, as opposed to using a local computer that is physically accessible. It means that the server that you are using is defined more on the services that you get, rather than a collection of hardware assembled together. CloudPap’s cloud server involve a collection of multiple computers or servers working together to ensure that the service that you need is available and accessible, and are not limited to a single CloudPap server. The main advantage of this set up is that the user does not have to be concerned with hardware failure or any other hitch, as the service is always available on multiple redundant location. CloudPap’s server are built on Open stack technology, which allows for at least 3 servers in different data centers to provide the same services, with one extra redundant server to ensure that in case of one server failure, it will be replaced by the standby server. This is what makes the CloudPap Cloud service robust, agile and reliable.
