Cloud Hosting Services

Modern, effective and economical cloud solutions

The infrastructure you need, securely accessible from the devices you’re using, set up and maintained by experienced and certified IT Pros.

What is Cloud Hosting?

Think of your existing infrastructure – physical machines and servers with memory, CPU, storage space, and all of your software installed on them. Now imagine being able to easily access that software and storage securely from any machine, anywhere in the world. And, as an added bonus, imagine that the hardware for your servers does not even need to be stored on-premises. This is cloud hosting.

With cloud server hosting, your business software, apps, data and website can be stored on a Virtual Private Server (VPS), managed and maintained by a cloud service provider like Solid Systems. You don’t need to worry about setup, upkeep and maintenance – it is all handled on your behalf.

And because your VPS components are entirely separate from your device’s memory and processing capacity, cloud hosting is perfect for testing new apps and systems without disrupting your workflow or impacting your existing hardware and processes.

How does Cloud Hosting work and why do you need it?

Running a business in a digital world is no easy feat. With technology constantly evolving, companies need to continually find better and more cost-effective ways of operating and growing to reach their goals. But keeping up with advances in technology often means spending more and more time and money in setting up, running and maintaining infrastructure.

Thankfully running on-premises hardware for your technology is not the only option available. Cloud hosting on Virtual Private Servers offers your business the opportunity to diversify your systems, upgrade your servers, and make use of world-class technology, all without needing to manage or maintain your own infrastructure.

When you choose to invest in cloud-based server hosting and use a VPS, you are paying for components such as memory, CPU, and disk space on a server in a data centre. Your services will run alongside other virtual machines that companies have commissioned on the same server.

You have complete authority as a business to assign your VPS the resources that you need and can quickly and easily upgrade your components as your business demands increase. Once you deploy a VPS, you will be able to access it securely from anywhere in the world, using any device.

With our cloud hosting, every website or business is isolated. Your VPS may be on the same physical server as another business’, but there will not be any interference from other resources or data hosted on the same platform.

    Frequently asked questions

    What is the difference between Cloud Hosting and Azure Virtual Machine?

    While cloud hosting and Microsoft Azure Virtual Machine offer very similar solutions, they are not one and the same. Solid Systems’ cloud hosting solutions are run on local and independent servers which gives us more control over the resources that are made available, ensuring that you get the best possible server configuration including SSD drives and that there is no overselling.

    However, if you’re looking for a solution which includes access to global servers, you may want to consider Azure VM as an alternative.

    • Pastel Partner
    • Sage VIP
