Which Cloud Computing company should I choose?

28 Sep

This is a very good question, as there are numerous cloud computing companies out there and by it’s very nature many cloud companies across the globe will be trying to sell you their cloud claiming that geographic location no longer matters when it comes to the Cloud. So you’ll have everyone from the US to Australia to China offering you Cloud services.

But is that really true? Does it really matter where your data is if it is in the Cloud? Well it’s not just about where your data is, its more about the level of support you will get. Very simple things like time zones play a part in getting what you really need. Again many cloud companies will offer 24/7 support, but is their technical talent really available 24/7 or are you getting a call centre?

Don’t just be lead by the price, you only pay for what you get. Many Cloud companies have their ‘lost leaders’ by way of very cheap storage and resources often priced by the minute, this is just to get you through the door and to buy and then all the extras start adding up. Once you’re all set up its a real pain to start moving away and that’s when the extra costs start being piled on. Make sure you know exactly what you’re getting for your money.

So less of the negative stuff, there are some great cloud computing companies out there, here are a few we came across:

Cloud Computing Solutions UK –
Cloud Computing Solutions Ireland –
Cloud Computing Solutions UK –

Should I be thinking of using Cloud Hosting?

18 Sep

We all want to use the latest technology, but should I be using the Cloud. Chances are you are already using some form of Cloud Computing as most of the household names that we use every day are utilising the Cloud. However, you may be thinking should I be using the Cloud for my business or for hosting my website? Well the answer depends on a number of factors:

1. Does my current hosting provider already utilise cloud computing technology? If so you may already be benefiting from the cloud without you even knowing it.
2. Do you have an ecommerce site or a portfolio/brochure site? If an ecommerce site then a cloud hosting package maybe of benefit. If a portfolio or brochure site then shared hosting should be fine.
3. What is the usage profile like for your site? Are your visitor volume, conversions and purchases seasonal? If so the flexibility of a cloud server may be right for you.
4. Is your business in start-up? The cloud can definitely help here if you are expecting a ramp up in growth and usage.

We’re not suggesting that you’re missing out by not being in the Cloud, but its well worth your while speaking with a trusting Cloud Hosting provider to see if you can avail of improved service levels and of course and improvement in your bottom line.

There are three things you should have in mind when considering if a Cloud Computing hosting platform is right for you:

1. Are you getting more flexibility and scalability?
2. Do you have improved uptime and backup for your date?
3. Are you getting value for money?
