Do you need Managed Cloud Hosting

May 25th 2015 at 2:32 AM

Managed Cloud Hosting is the buzz word nowadays. Every other business is moving to the cloud and why should you stay behind. As per one of the Cisco Whitepaper, about 80% of the businesses would be on the cloud hosting platform by 2017.


While all the sounds great and pushed you to move to clouds, next question you should first answer - Do you need Managed Cloud Hosting? Rather, what actually is Managed Cloud Hosting and how can it benefit your business.


Well, to be frank, there is no such thing as Unmanaged Hosting. Yes, you read that right. Either you manage your hosting or offload the tasks to an agency. Your server deserve to be managed. Period!


So the actual question now is that, should you handle and manage it yourself or should you offload it? Well, personally as per my experience of 7+ years, you should offload it, if this is not your major part of the business. If your business is e-commerce, then other than managing operations, sales, support & your website, why would you take extra burdon of managing your server too?


However, if your core business is about managing servers or your data is so sensitive that you cannot let any other person have a look at it, then you should simply stick to - manage it yourself. Although you can enter into Non-Disclosure Agreements (legal) with the managed service provider but it totally depends on your specific requirements.


While there are many options available out there who offer Managed Cloud Hosting, you should consider following factors before finalizing:

- Managed Service providers country of origin (try a provider from your own country)

- SLA & services covered while managing the server

- Modes available for support

- Time taken to setup the server

- Finally cost


If you are from India and looking for such a service provider, then Servopia Cloud is one of the growing Managed Cloud Hosting provider. They offer Managed cloud Hosting on DigitalOcean VPS. The reliability of the DigitalOcean Cloud VPS comes packed with ready to use proprietory server configuration by Servopia cloud that makes it extremely easy to configure, setup & start! I've personally verified their claim to setup a sever in 60s and my server was setup within 52s.


So the next time you buy a Cloud VPS Hosting, first think about the factors given above. All the best! Happy Hosting!
