If you are considering moving to cloud hosting for some or all of your infrastructure needs, you are not alone. It is estimated that 67% of businesses have at least some of their applications in the cloud or will be making a move soon.
Greater Flexibility - Creating new cloud environments can happen in a matter of minutes versus weeks or months with dedicated servers. Additionally, companies can more cost-effectively manage seasonal peaks, as you can simply scale computing resources on the fly when the need arises. When the peak ends, simply scale back down.
Quicker Deployments - Instantly deploy replicated server instances within your cloud environment, each with the security and compliance standards determined by your company administrator. No waiting on purchased equipment to arrive and configure.
Fewer Servers - Cloud hosting lets you do more on less servers. This saves companies money since they are no longer having to power, cool and staff to maintain those servers. If you need more computing resources, simply power on a new server and share in its available resources.
Paying Only for What You Use - Unlike dedicated servers that you pay to power 24/7, in the gBlock Cloud, you have the option to power down resources when they are not being utilized. This can be done manually or even programmatically. Utilizing the vCloud API, you can tell your servers to power up or shut down when you determine. Whether it be triggered by time of day or useage, you have the control over what you actually utilize.
