The cloud service doesn’t restrict the user to a specific set of resources due to which the user can dynamically scale up the server based on their requirements and the resources required.
2. Why to use cloud storage?
Cloud computing is known to provide various advantages that include scalability, high availability and cost efficiency. The cloud servers provide the means to easily scale the resources fulfill the demands of the user. This is because the cloud technology is scalable and lets to do upgrades with minimum limitations. Cloud computing enables users to choose the amount of CPU, memory, web space and bandwidth and pay only for the needed resources.
3. What can be hosted using a cloud server?
