Migrate to a New WordPress Host in 5 Steps With No Downtime

Kent Roberts October 15, 2013 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

Some of us are experts at moving sites from one web host or server to another. For those of us who are not in that category, it’s often a task that gets procrastinated.

For good reason, too. Once everything gets set up and is functioning correctly on our site, it’s natural to be concerned that switching over to the servers of a different hosting service could cause downtime, glitches, and other headaches. The advice on WordPress itself, furthermore, is comprehensive but complicated.

1TB Transfer Speed – How Much Is 1TB of Bandwidth?

Joel June 17, 2013 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

Early last month, Atlantic.Net officially announced that all  cloud servers received an upgrade that provides an increased outbound data transfer capacity of 1 terabyte (TB), absolutely free. This gives our customers the ability to send 1,000 times more outbound data from their  cloud servers than previously available. This essentially eliminates bandwidth costs, ultimately saving you more money. But, what does the phrase “1TB of outbound data transfer” actually mean?

To start things off here is a great blog which describes various facets of cloud computing: All those definitions you never really wanted to understand.

The Basics of Cloud Computing and Is your IT department up to speed?

From www.proformablog.com – May 17, 3:04 AM

Commonly mentioned in both the technology and marketing business sectors, the cloud is a concept that was originated in the 1960’s.

Juliana Payson‘s insight:

Briefly mentioned above are Iaas, PaaS, and Saas. These are the three most important aaS options but by no means are these the limit of this space. Additional aaS options include Network (NaaS), Storage (STaaS), Security (SEaaS), Data (DaaS), Database (DBaaS), Test Environment (TEaaS) and so on.

However, software development, networking and infrastructure are changing all the time, for example, Adobe’s recent announcement of focusing their whole business model moving forward onto the cloud. The lines between these various services hosted in the cloud  are beginning to blur.

Cloud-based infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is for renting storage and compute capacity from a service provider, delivered via an Internet connection.

Juliana Payson‘s insight:

But recently, Gartner researcher John Rymer, who closely tracks the PaaS market, says the lines between IaaS, SaaS and PaaS are beginning to blur. You have platforms (PaaS) like WordPress, who are also Hosting on their infrastructure (IaaS), like WordPress.com and that would be a simple example. Creative suites and SaaS will soon adopt streaming services which will also bring them into the web hosting world.

The great thing about Software as a Service, or (SaaS) is its ability to free up your individual processing capability so that you can focus on the management side of your project. Whether it’s a business, or a sideline, paying for usage of cloud computing services is undeniably the efficient way to move forward wherever you can adopt these workflows. However, a recent article suggests that IT individuals may not necessarily be aligned with the business focus, and their personal fear of remote services may conflict with what could be good for the business.

IT’s Attitude Problem


IT's Attitude Problem -- InformationWeek | How to Grow Your Business Online | Scoop.it

From www.informationweek.com – May 17, 12:04 AM

Few of our 446 respondents will change their IT strategies as a result of the cloud. That spells lost opportunity.

Juliana Payson‘s insight:

This means IT is either inept at communicating why it does what it does (including resisting the cloud) or fundamentally misaligned with the needs and priorities of the organization. Especially with attitudes like “I don’t trust the cloud, why should I put it in place for anyone else” and similarly bizarre statements. This brings up an interesting question for your IT resources: Are they really up to speed on advances in cloud hosting?

Managed VPS vs Unmanaged VPS: What’s the Difference?

Adnan Raja November 30, 2012 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

To break things down a bit, cloud VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting is when a web hosting provider takes one massive server and partitions it up so that it can have several servers on it, each of which can run its own operating system and can be re-booted independently.  Sounds simple enough.  So what is the difference between managed VPS and unmanaged VPS?
