Why Your eCommerce Needs Cloud Hosting & Cloud Monitoring
Cloud hosting and cloud monitoring is a hot topic these days. See why you should considering it for your eCommerce store today.
Over the last decade, the way businesses operate has changed dramatically. Businesses that once operated entirely on-premise with large capital investments in their technology infrastructure now outsource those headaches to datacenters. In 2021, 74% of enterprises worldwide report using cloud hosting and infrastructure services.
Cloud hosting services are useful to many organizations, but they are not devoid of challenges. In fact, among surveyed managers, technical executives, and cloud technology users, security challenges are cited as the greatest concern, followed by cloud management, resources, expertise, and cost. To address these concerns, cloud monitoring is needed.
What is cloud hosting and cloud monitoring?
Cloud hosting is an online solution for uniting applications, data, programs, and websites in a virtual server. With cloud hosting, data is no longer bound to a specific device or location. Because servers are virtualized and secured in highly specialized datacenters, cloud hosting outstrides the capabilities of a centralized approach with increased availability, scalability, agile load response, and improved security. Many enterprises and endeavors can benefit from cloud hosting.
Cloud monitoring is a reviewing and managing service that oversees cloud processes. To verify that a cloud is operational, the monitoring services can follow manual or automated inspections. Cloud monitoring includes reviewing data across multiple locations, systematically conducting audits to ensure security standards are met, eliminating potential violations, and merging cloud monitoring tools provided by different entities.
Why is cloud monitoring essential in an eCommerce environment?
Cloud monitoring is important for any business hosting their technology in the cloud, but it’s critical in an eCommerce scenario. If the servers go down, so does your entire storefront. Cloud monitoring is also responsible for maintaining cloud hosting quality standards and ensuring your eCommerce customer experiences are fast and fluid.
Plus, data breaches are on the rise. Cybersecurity breaches can compromise both businesses and customers. Cloud monitoring simplifies the process of risk detection, automatically scanning for security gaps and possible vulnerabilities. If a concern is identified, the cloud monitoring system alerts the network so that safety measures can be taken.
Cloud monitoring offers comprehensive evaluations of the cloud hosting platform, the content, and itself. The quality control processes are also self-reflective so that the likelihood of leaks is reduced, and the usage bandwidth is responsive to the traffic. When cloud usage changes, the cloud space can adjust as well. This ensures that the cloud utilization is optimized to be as cost-effective as possible.
