In today era, we are commonly hearing small or large organizations are moving their data/storage to cloud. But what you think moving data from local server to cloud server are as simple as copying data from one drive to another? No, it requires skilled hosting providers that setup proper cloud solution for your organization.
But before moving further let’s have a quick look on Cloud Computing. Cloud or Cloud Computing is defined as using various services such as software development platforms, servers, storage, over the Internet.
What is Cloud Hosting?
These days Cloud hosting has become enormously popular and it is a latest form of hosting. The main concept of cloud hosting is “Divide and Rule” as it uses virtual resources from several clustered servers according to the website needs which in turns balance load, increase security and available resources whenever required.
How Cloud Hosting Works?
Next question that arises in our mind is, how cloud hosting will work? Isn’t it? So, each server in cloud has assigned particular set of tasks to carry work. In case if any server has failed or overloaded then other servers used to back up to render the required resources. Also, usage of low quality server hardware can significantly hamper the performance.
Modes of Data Transfer from Cloud
Moreover, there are three different mediums through which you can move your data to cloud. Following are its types:-
- Enterprise to Cloud: In this method information is transferred over the open Internet, from servers in the enterprise to public cloud computing providers. If you have ever noticed the speed difference when you downloading data from a remote website versus an intranet site, you already aware what issues arises in this arena.
- Mobile to Cloud: In this method data which is required for operation is transferred from mobile devices (tablets, smartphones, netbooks and so on) to cloud. Business usually don’t use this approach as they do not save their data on mobile devices. Moving information using this way is quiet easy.
- Cloud to Cloud: In this method data transfer is of two types that is intracloud and intercloud.
Intracloud data-transfer performance is directly related to the size of the cloud service. Normally, intracloud data transfer is between virtual machines or applications, tenants, and data stores. The approaches and technology vary greatly, so organization should run their own benchmarks to plan and implement duplicate scenario.
InterCloud data transfer is even more complex than intracloud. It includes dealing with cloud services that may not like each other exchanging data. Moreover, the open Internet is the typical used for transferring data, so the same issues arise here as with cloud-to-enterprise.
