There is a number of benefits of cloud computing; the main one is elasticity, and by elasticity I mean the ability to scale up and down, use more capacity when you need it and turn down the dial again to drive down the cost. What the cloud provides more than anything is ease of scale and rapid provisioning.
Using the right cloud hosting provider is important, at My Server Guy we choose to use AWS who provides us with the building blocks on where we can build your infrastructure, of all cloud hosting providers AWS is the biggest, AWS was the first in the game and are now 13x larger than all other cloud providers together.
The sheer scale of AWS means they can provide capacity instantly all around the globe 24 hours a day. If you have customers in Europe, in the UK, in Asia or in America, you should be hosting your data in proximity of your customers, this will not only mean you are compliant by law but also mean faster speed and lower latency for your clients for accessing their applications.
Lastly Cloud computing also provides other benefits that allows to cater even more for scalability, this includes scalable database instances that grows automatically with your usage patterns, it includes load balancers to distribute load over more servers to ensure uptime and extra capacity during peak traffic, and also CDN (Content Delivery Network) which is a network of proxy servers that allows you to host content in one place (local to you) and distribute it with easy all over the world with low latency, ideal usage for this is static content like images.
These are some of the benefits that most people would benefit greatly from using, however there is unlimited opportunities to turn the cloud into a real gold mine for your business and lots of other products to help you take advantage and reap the benefits of cloud computing.
