Cloud servers are virtual infrastructures built to perform information and application processing storage. These servers are a part of a physical server which has been divided into multiple virtual servers using a virtualisation software. The business model for companies offering cloud services is known as infrastructure-as-a-service or IaaS, and under this model, a company offers information processing and storage services through an online interface.
The features of a cloud server
To start, it’s important to mention that cloud servers have all the capabilities of an on-premises server. They can be either physical, virtual, or a mix of the two, and they are meant to offer companies the capability to process and store a large volume of information. An API is used to access the automated services of the cloud on demand, and organisations can choose between two different payment models: as-you-go or monthly. There is also the option of a shared hosting plan, which scales according to your budgets and needs.
