There’s a shortage of cloud specialists. But have you considered dedicated servers?
With the many benefits offered by cloud computing, many UK businesses are looking to hire workers with adequate cloud skills. However, new research by Softchoice has shown a shortage of cloud specialists, leading to organisations struggling to implement a robust cloud strategy or, worse, hiring someone who doesn’t have the necessary skills.
When you’re thinking about data storage and web hosting, you need to be able to turn to someone who knows about the differences between cloud servers and dedicated servers to help you decide which is best.
In response to the study Craig McQueen, Director of Microsoft Practice at Softchoice, said. a lack of cloud specialists means many UK companies are at risk of “impacted revenue and a loss of market relevance.” He also believes that a shortage in IT-related attributes “could stop many businesses from reaching their full potential in the market.” Knowing the difference between a cloud server and a dedicated server could help you perform more efficiently, protect your data and offer a better service to your customers.

Here at Clouvider, we know that some businesses may be novices regarding the differences between web hosting. We have made it our goal to choose between our web hosting packages as simple and efficient as possible. Whether you opt for hosting via a cloud server, dedicated server or managed dedicated server, we can offer advice. We will help you make the right decision when you don’t know where to turn.
Differences between cloud and dedicated servers
When you use cloud servers for web hosting, your data is stored across several virtual servers which other users share. This could, at times, cause them to run slower, but they’re a cost-effective and secure choice and mean you can access your data from anywhere. By contrast, dedicated servers are physical servers which require backing up. However, they are also dedicated to your business, meaning your server space won’t be shared. It is a good choice if you expect a lot of activity through your website. For example, a high traffic e-commerce website provides a seamless and quick browsing experience for your Customer.
