A cloud server is a virtual server and is created, hosted and offered via a cloud computing platform. They behave in a similar manner as a physical server in terms of different functionalities as well as capabilities. Functions of cloud services can be accessed from various locations with the help of a cloud service provider. Cloud servers are also known as virtual servers. A cloud server can be virtual or physical depending on the way its functionalities are delivered. A cloud server is considered to be logical when it is delivered through a server virtualisation. In this delivery model they physical server is logically distributed into two or more logical servers each of which has a separate operating system, user interface and apps, although they share physical components from the underlying physical server.
Benefits of using a cloud server
- Internet based computing: In the past, people would run applications and programs from software downloaded on a physical computer or server in their building, cloud computing offers people access to the same kinds of applications through the internet. When you update your Facebook status you are using cloud computing as you are when checking your bank balance from your phone.
- Increased efficiency and flexibility: Cloud computing increases efficiency as well as flexibility as your cloud capacity expands with your demands. You can back up all important data to the cloud and if the worst happens and your computers crash, the data is still available for recovery.
