Useful Facts About Cloud Computing

Cloud computing, also referred to as “the cloud” is about on-demand access to information, giving users all the capabilities needed to store and process data. It works through shared services, users can achieve a lot more in digital space now than ever before. Cloud Computing gives you access to many utilities over a network, maximising the effectiveness of shared resources. Saving you time and money!

There is a very tainted image of what Cloud computing really is, many users are not even aware that they are using Cloud based solutions on a daily basis. Cloud resources are usually shared by multiple users and dynamically allocates resources as you need them.

With cloud computing, users can access a single server to retrieve and update their data without purchasing licenses for different applications, saving you time and money. Today, 56% of organisation are seeking to hire staff with cloud expertise because the advantages of making this transition is priceless.

Moving to Cloud Services

For example, at Cloudnames when we say “moving to cloud services”, what we are referring to is moving away from a traditional CAPEX model (buying the dedicated hardware) to the OPEX model (using a shared cloud infrastructure and pay as you use it).

Most hosting service providers still offer traditional hosting services. Many customers resort to designing their own web pages or hire a web-designer to do the job. This is why many companies have websites that have not been updated for a long time, or renewed. With Cloudnames you pay as you go when you choose our Managed web design services.

Today, over 67% of IT professionals use cloud services and applications. This tells us that there is huge shift in traditional web services and new Cloud solutions.


Business owners incur substantial costs with traditional ways of going live online, which are a deterrent, especially if other options aren’t considered or made available to them.

Our findings clearly show that 75% of businesses report that service availability improved since moving to the cloud.

The aim of cloud computing

The goal of cloud computing is that it allows users to benefit from all technologies, without the need for deep knowledge or expertise with each one of them.

For example, there are many companies that provide both free and paid hosting services, WordPress is the most common hosting service available.

Just like your computer files at home, websites need somewhere to be stored, or ‘hosted’ before being served on the internet. But because they’re a lot more high maintenance than your home files, they need to be in a specialised environment.

Cloud Hosting Services

Cloud hosting – which is the service we provide at Cloudnames – offers a virtual hosting environment that uses multiple servers at once, rather than one specific, physical centre. Its benefits are wide-ranging; not only is it secure, good value and quick, but it’s also extremely reliable.

Because the technology harnesses multiple servers, if one goes down another will always carry the load. Its multi-server structure also means it’s scalable, which is a big plus if your website has the potential for growth.

Welcome to virtual reality

The key feature of this solution is what we call Virtualisation. Virtualisation software separates a physical computing device into many “virtual” devices. Each of which can be easily used and managed to perform computing tasks, providing the agility required to speed up IT operations, and reduce cost.

Our services at Cloudnames can help your business avoid upfront infrastructure costs. Allowing you to get applications up and running faster, with improved manageability and less maintenance. Enabling you to rapidly adjust resources to meet your spontaneous business demands.

On Demand Cloud Solutions

Most Cloud providers typically use a “pay as you go” model. Be aware that if you are considering Cloud solutions for your online business, you must adapt to the Cloud pricing model to avoid unexpected charges.

In other words, the cloud aims to cut costs, and helps the users focus on their core business instead of being set-back by IT obstacles. Did you know that the US Federal Government saved $5.5 Billion per year by shifting to Cloud Services?
