    Smile Cloud Vs Dedicated Hosting

    Cloud Vs Dedicated Hosting
    For startups approaches to building an application and the infrastructure to run it on:
    A) Pessimistic - Build it quickly, get it out there, and validate the business before spending the time to engineer it for scaling.
    B) Optimistic - Build it carefully, code for scalability, and launch it with the assumption that it must scale quickly.

    With method A, your primary goal is to get the thing off the ground and hope that scaling becomes a concern. If you start to exhaust the resources on your initial server, you're probably gaining traction in the market. You can buy yourself some time by scaling vertically (adding more RAM, CPU power etc.) while you work on re-engineering your code for horizontal scaling.
    With method B, you're sold on the viability of this product and you know it's going to be a hit. You believe that any hiccups in service would be more damaging than coming to market later. Therefore, you're going to spend the time to code the software for scalability up front and configure your infrastructure for growth.
    Here are some Pros and Cons to each to help with the decision:

    Cloud Pros
    • No hardware to buy/maintain
    • Unlimited instance scaling
    • Unlimited disk scaling
    • Dynamic/Elastic scaling
    • Pay for what you use
    • Resilient and Redundant



    Cloud Cons
    • Bandwidth limited and expensive
    • Disk space expensive
    • SQL storage expensive
    • Lower performance in many cases
    • Lack of control



    Dedicated Server Pros
    • Full control
    • Abundant disk space (to start)
    • Inexpensive disk space
    • Bandwidth is cheap
    • SQL storage is cheap
    • High performance
    • Room to grow



    Dedicated Server Cons
    • Rigid specs
    • Always paying for maximum power
    • Limited physical disk space
    • Physical scaling limit (vertically)
    • Hardware failures
    • Non-resilient
    • Configuration and Management



    A dedicated server in a data centre somewhere is easier, the cost per month for a decent box (Quad core Intel Xeon W3520 RAM 16 GB Hard Drive 2 TB SATA Bandwidth 10 TB @ 250 MBPS DDos Protection) will be around $65/month at Waxspace. In comparison, a far weaker small cloud instance with Microsoft Azure (1.6Ghz CPU, 1.75GB RAM, 100GB storage) would be around $70/month or less than half that of the dedicated.
    So the choice is yours.
    Thank you….!

    The pricing of each of the server options – cloud or dedicated – will depend upon the hosting company you’re using. Generally, dedicated servers are more expensive and you’ll be paying an up-front monthly fee for the server space you’re using.
