"Cloud" Hosting Question
Posted on 2012-03-21
'k - might be a boneheaded question - but I don't really feel like doing a ton of research on the matter right now (too many things on my plate) - so a quick discussion is probably easiest.
Right now I've got a couple of companies woo'ing my company about new hosting solutions. I keep getting pitched on the idea of "cloud hosting". FYI - I've always opted for dedicated hosting plans.
When I search around at various hosting companies - it seems to me a lot of them are no longer proposing "shared hosting" plans - yet I see a ton of cloud hosting options.
Is "cloud hosting" simply the new euphemism for shared hosting (dressing up a pig in a wedding dress) - where if I were to sign on to such a plan I'd be riddled with all sorts of the things that plague shared hosting consumers (bandwidth throttling, denial of service due to bandwidth consumption, etc)?
