Look for These Features While Investing in a Cloud Hosting Company

by Hussain S. Web Hosting Service

Various businesses, companies, and organisations often require storing and managing huge amounts of data and maintaining a robust IT infrastructure. Not only does this involve expenditure of a lot of money but it also prevents people from focusing on their core businesses. Thus, it is wise, in these cases, to hand over data management tasks to a third party provider of cloud services. These are the companies which take care of data management for an organisation mainly through cloud computing. Entrusting such a company with data management is a wise and safe move as it places data in professional hands which know the best way to efficiently manage it. However, before investing in the services of such a company, one must look for certain important features for the best results. Whether one is looking for cloud hosting in UAE or in India, it is important to check if these features are there, some of which have been discussed below.

· Data centres: It is important to learn about the data centres used by the cloud hosting company. The data centres should be designed and maintained in a way that data stays secure and is managed well. The centres should be air-conditioned and measures must be taken to prevent overheating of machines. 24×7 security should be provided to keep the machines and data physically secure. Dual power sources and generators, connected servers, and well-maintained IT components must be available to ensure there is no data loss and high changes of retrieval in case there is a loss.

· Uptime and bandwidth: It is important that the uptime be high, around 99.95%. The bandwidth should also be large or such that suits the business operations of the particular business concerned. This helps to ensure that data can be uploaded, accessed, and downloaded by the clients any time. This is an important feature to look for in a cloud hosting company.

· Service-specific payment: It is futile to pay for a general package of services when only a small number of them will be used. Thus, while choosing a cloud hosting company, it is important to look for one that allows payment for only the services and products used and has the provision for credit-based service-level agreements. This ensures that no extra money is spent on services on a general scale but payment is made for only the services the client has signed up for.

· A variety of cloud computing options: One must look for a company that enables one to choose from among a variety of cloud computing options. There should be provisions for using public, private and hybrid clouds depending on the needs and preferences of the clients. This feature helps various businesses opt for clouds and servers which suit their business interests and strategies.

Thus, if you need the services of a provider of cloud hosting services in the UAE or in Africa or anywhere else, make sure you choose one with features including the above for efficient and secure data management.
