Inside Asia – Cloud Hosting
Unlike traditional web hosting methods of storing a website or app on a single data center server, cloud hosting spreads the data across multiple connected servers.
Cloud hosting is said to offer greater flexibility and speed in scalability as well as reliable uptime to keep your services live even if a server goes down.
Driven by the gaining momentum of cloud hosting, rapid internet penetration and digitalisation, the Southeast Asia web hosting market is expected to reach US$4.7 billion by 2025, with many startups and global giants like Google, AWS and Alibaba Cloud setting up in the region.
The demand for cloud hosting is likely to continue, particularly from large enterprises who cater to huge customer bases that process growing data loads and experience large traffic surges.
But there are many questions you should ask yourself before adopting cloud hosting:
- Should I choose a cloud hosting where my IT team sits or where my target audience is based?
- Is it worth migrating from my traditional web hosting server?
- Is it suitably connected where there is low latency?
- Will it keep my data safe?
- Will I break any data localisation laws if my files and client data are stored in a remote cloud hosting provider?
- How do I avoid paying for what I am not utilising?
Not only this, but you will need to consider the many types of cloud hosting subscription models for your business. And with greater choice in the type of cloud hosting providers, beyond AWS, Google Cloud and Azure, are these options truly worth considering?
