A managed cloud is centered around a very high availability architecture with redundancy built in across multiple hosts, the storage and the security. This gives failover protection as well as the ability to maintain and update hardware without a maintenance window.
- Network Security
The same security and network environment found in private cloud solutions can be had here too. This is achieved with dedicated and secure VLAN’s, IDS/IPS and firewalls and can be used with any cloud servers.
- Failover and Balancing
Automatic failover and resource balancing can be achieved between hardware hosts which is taken care of at the virtualization level. This lets the servers take full advantage of the high availability characteristics if any hosts were to fail.
Sometimes applications and databases can’t get enough performance from a virtual server and this is the ideal time to use a dedicated, physical server in conjunction with the virtual ones. This creates a really powerful hybrid system with all the benefits of both a physical and virtual server in the same, sleek system.
It’s been shown that managed cloud systems are often just as cost-effective as public ones. While you can’t buy servers per hour this way, longer-term enterprise applications rarely need it anyway.
While it’s true that not all types of applications can take full advantage of managed cloud hosting such as research, development and test servers, many others are prime candidates.
Managed cloud hosting is the ideal solution for small to medium size businesses that need the quality of an enterprise private cloud with high security, availability and redundancy with the added affordability. Managed clouds can be implemented extremely quickly and can be scaled for maximum performance and capacity really efficiently. This allows companies to start out small and quickly scale up really big without any major concerns of costs or upfront investment.
