Don't be misled by "cloud washing" whereby the word cloud is stuck in front of anything. eg Cloud Linux - while a great product it does not have anything to do with what is known as a cloud platform
If you decide you are going to explore a "cloud hosting" service then be sure and query them about what justifies their naming it "cloud...."
I appreciate your answer.
You want to say that cloud hosting is the part of hosting which has some new features from past hosting and Cloud computing and hosting offers much more flexibility. When, I read this article http://cloudcomputing.sys-con.com/node/1792026
I think,"Cloud computing means that staff can access the files and data that they need even when they're working remotely and/or outside office hours.
As long as they can get on the Internet, staff can access information from home, on the road, from clients' offices or even from a smartphone such as a BlackBerry or iPhone. Staff can also work collaboratively on files and documents, even when they're not physically together. Documents can simultaneously be viewed and edited from multiple locations.
According my opinion, Cloud hosting has new features and new application which keeping software up to date.
But I have also read some disadvantage of cloud hosting: "Businesses that implement cloud computing need to take steps to reduce the risk of any Internet interruption or reduced speeds. However, these risks are comparable with servers or computers being out of action for a period of time, which is just as likely, or perhaps more likely to happen, than the Internet failing."
I want hosting services for personal use, not for business. Which one is best for me between cloud hosting and hosting?
