What is Cloud Hosting?
Cloud Hosting is the newest form of web hosting that is gaining great popularity over the recent years. The concept of cloud hosting is principally 'Divide and Rule'. The cluster of servers that work together to meet the resources required for maintaining your website is termed as a cloud.
What is the difference between Cloud Hosting and Shared Hosting?
A website hosted on shared hosting is placed on the same server as many other sites, that could range from a few to hundreds. In this setup, all websites share Storage, RAM and CPU from the same server. On the contrary, our cloud hosting services offers nearly unlimited ability to handle traffic spikes because of a virtualization layer with a separate CEPH storage cluster and upgradable CPU Core and RAM model. In case if one storage instance is rendered inaccessible, the other instances will be able to serve the stored information due to 3N redundancy.
What is Varnish Cache?
Varnish cache is a web application accelerator that can speed up your website by 10k. Varnish is mostly used for content heavy websites. Caching is used by the top 10k websites with high-traffic including Wikipedia and many online news sites such as The New York Times, The Hindu, The Guardian, etc. It is also used by social and content sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, and Tumblr.
What's the reliability of your Cloud Hosting?
PoddarWeb's Cloud Hosting Services offers maximum reliability by automatically distributing three data mirrored copies across multiple devices for data safety. Every website is hosted on a virtual partition of multiple physical servers which draws resources like disk space and bandwidth from these.
What storage architecture is used by your Cloud Hosting Services?
The storage architecture used by our Cloud Hosting is Ceph Storage. It gives a 3N level of redundancy. In regards to computing, it is completely distributed without any point of failure, scalable to the exabyte level and also freely available. It also replicates data and makes it fault-tolerant, and requires no specific hardware support. Ceph is designed in a fashion to result in both self-healing and self-managing, thus aiming to minimize administration time and other costs.
With additional CPU and RAM what's the maximum limit?
Each order of our Cloud Hosting can have a maximum of up to 8 GB RAM and 8 cores.
