1. Flexibility
Cloud-based services are ideal for businesses with growing or fluctuating bandwidth demands. If your needs increase it’s easy to scale up your cloud capacity, drawing on the service’s remote servers. Likewise, if you need to scale down again, the flexibility is baked into the service. This level of agility can give businesses using cloud computing a real advantage over competitors – it’s not surprising that CIOs and IT Directors rank ‘operational agility’ as a top driver for cloud adoption.
2. Disaster recovery
Businesses of all sizes should be investing in robust disaster recovery, but for smaller businesses that lack the required cash and expertise, this is often more an ideal than the reality. Cloud is now helping more organisations buck that trend. According to Aberdeen Group, small businesses are twice as likely as larger companies to have implemented cloud-based backup and recovery solutions that save time, avoid large up-front investment and roll up third-party expertise as part of the deal.

3. Automatic software updates
The beauty of cloud computing is that the servers are off-premise, out of sight and out of your hair. Suppliers take care of them for you and roll out regular software updates – including security updates – so you don’t have to worry about wasting time maintaining the system yourself. Leaving you free to focus on the things that matter, like growing your business.
4. Capital-expenditure Free
Cloud computing cuts out the high cost of hardware. You simply pay as you go and enjoy a subscription-based model that’s kind to your cash flow. Add to that the ease of setup and management and suddenly your scary, hairy IT project looks at lot friendlier. It’s never been easier to take the first step to cloud adoption.
5. Increased collaboration
When your teams can access, edit and share documents anytime, from anywhere, they’re able to do more together, and do it better. Cloud-based workflow and file sharing apps help them make updates in real time and gives them full visibility of their collaborations.

6. Work from anywhere
With cloud computing, if you’ve got an internet connection you can be at work. And with most serious cloud services offering mobile apps, you’re not restricted by which device you’ve got to hand.

The result? Businesses can offer more flexible working perks to employees so they can enjoy the work-life balance that suits them – without productivity taking a hit. One study reported that 42% of workers would swap a portion of their pay for the ability to telecommute. On average they’d be willing to take a 6% pay cut.

7. Document control
The more employees and partners collaborate on documents, the greater the need for watertight document control. Before the cloud, workers had to send files back and forth as email attachments to be worked on by one user at a time. Sooner or later – usually sooner – you end up with a mess of conflicting file content, formats and titles.

And as even the smallest companies become more global, the scope for complication rises. According to one study, "73% of knowledge workers collaborate with people in different time zones and regions at least monthly".

When you make the move to cloud computing, all files are stored centrally and everyone sees one version of the truth. Greater visibility means improved collaboration, which ultimately means better work and a healthier bottom line. If you’re still relying on the old way, it could be time to try something a little more streamlined.

8. Security
Lost laptops are a billion dollar business problem. And potentially greater than the loss of an expensive piece of kit is the loss of the sensitive data inside it. Cloud computing gives you greater security when this happens. Because your data is stored in the cloud, you can access it no matter what happens to your machine. And you can even remotely wipe data from lost laptops so it doesn’t get into the wrong hands.

9. Competitiveness
Wish there was a simple step you could take to become more competitive? Moving to the cloud gives access to enterprise-class technology, for everyone. It also allows smaller businesses to act faster than big, established competitors. Pay-as-you-go service and cloud business applications mean small outfits can run with the big boys, and disrupt the market, while remaining lean and nimble. David now packs a Goliath-sized punch.

10. Environmentally friendly
While the above points spell out the benefits of cloud computing for your business, moving to the cloud isn’t an entirely selfish act. The environment gets a little love too. When your cloud needs fluctuate, your server capacity scales up and down to fit. So you only use the energy you need and you don’t leave oversized carbon footprints. This is something close to our hearts at Salesforce, where we try our best to create sustainable solutions with minimal environmental impact.

I was used to 3-5 day turn around for even the most simple of questions with previous hosts. Cloudarion.com (http://www.Cloudarion.com) not only answers support requests and questions the same day but often in the same HOUR that questions are submitted. All in all, it has the best customer support department around.

Pay for what you use
In most of the hosting types, you pay a monthly cost whether you use all the resources or not. But in cloud hosting, you only pay for what you utilize. Choose your cloud hosting provider wisely.

High scalability
In cloud hosting scaling your server resources couldn’t be simple for that you’ll have access to an intuitive site management dashboard so that you can view your site’s performance in real time.

Superfluous Server Environment
Cloud hosting is redundant, as your site backup will take over your existing site within seconds and you’ll have a concurrent live version of your website that your host can load instantly.

Uptime and Availability
Cloud hosting has high uptime built into its structure, as your site will be virtually using the resources of multiple servers, you can simply be transferred to another server if one goes offline or is experiencing technical problems.

Fast Server Setup Process
You can install your cloud hosting server in a fraction of seconds. Unless you’re signing up for a beginner shared hosting package, it may require some time to deploy your web server.

Faster Website Speed and Performance
Most cloud servers can offer you fast loading speeds. In addition, to enhance your site’s capacity, cloud hosting offers for easier load balancing between multiple server environments, which can help to put much less strain on a single server’s resources.

Scalable Traffic
If your site traffic is up and down, then it’s going to be hard to find a host that provides the best hosting service. In cloud hosting, you have the capacity to scale your resources up and down regarding your needs.

Simple Server Management Dashboard
Today’s cloud hosting can easily keep track of your hosting and scale it on demand via server management dashboard. You don’t need to have a technical skill just to run your cloud server.

Minimize Your Entire Environmental Impact
When you opt for cloud hosting, you’re utilizing less number of overall datacenters and are only using the server resources you actually require at the moment. By streamlining your resource and data use you’re creating less of an environmental impact.

Benefits of Cloud Hosting
1. Flexible Pricing Structure
In most other styles of hosting you pay a monthly rate regardless of whether to not you utilize all of the server resources. With cloud hosting, you only pay for what you use.
So, if you’re expecting a post to go viral, or your site is receiving an unusually large amount of traffic, you don’t have to completely upgrade your package. All you have to do is scale your resources up during the traffic surge and down once traffic levels return to normal. Instead of having to pay for high hosting fee across the board your pricing matches the total amount of server resources you’re using.

2. Very Easy to Scale Server Resources
With cloud hosting scaling your server resources couldn’t be easier. For most cloud servers you’ll have access to an intuitive site management dashboard that lets you view your site’s performance in real time. You can scale server resources up or down on the spot without having to wait for approval from your hosting provider.

3. Redundant Server Environment
With most types of hosting your site lives on a single server. If something were to happen to that server, then your site would go offline and you wouldn’t be able to get back online until that server is fixed. When your hosting is redundant a site backup will take over your existing site within seconds. However, not all redundancy is created equal. With cloud hosting, you’ll have a concurrent live version of your website that your host can load immediately.

4. High Uptime and Availability
If you’re using any kind of traditional hosting your site’s uptime depends upon the physical server environment. If it goes offline, then so does your site. Unless you’re utilizing a CDN, which can help to reduce your site’s overall downtime.
Cloud hosting has high uptime built into its structure. Since your site will be virtually using the resources of multiple servers, you can simply be transferred to another server if one goes offline or is experiencing technical issues. Plus, with your ability to scale server resources on demand your site won’t go offline from an unexpected traffic surge.

5. Speedy Server Setup Process
You can deploy a cloud hosting server in record time. Unless you’re signing up for a beginner shared hosting package, it might take some time to deploy your web server. This can be a hassle if you need your site online quickly, or you’re doing a host migration and you’re stuck waiting for the server to be ready.

6. Safety From Server Hardware Issues
With cloud hosting your site is isolated from any physical server issues including hacking, hardware failure, or system overload. When a physical server is compromised or experiencing an issue, you can simply utilize the physical resources of another server – all without having any downtime.

Hi, here are the benefits of cloud hosting below:

On-demand resources: With cloud servers, you’re free to request resources on the fly and, in general, pay on time.

High availability: Unlike on-premises physical servers, virtual machines transfer data to another machine without downtime in the event of a hardware failure. The stability of cloud servers is unmatched in the field of web hosting.

Scalability: With more resources and faster access to them, cloud hosts offer incredible scalability for customers. This is why these types of servers are used for other cloud-based services, collectively known as cloud hosting.

Cloud is a new concept of hosting (https://www.hostneverdie.com). Instead of using a single server for the infrastructure like the traditional one, the technology uses a fail-over clusters of servers working together in harmony. Your website is virtually using the resources of multiple servers. When a sever is offline it won't affect your website. Therefore, cloud hosting is more redundant and has higher uptime and higher availability than a traditional hosting. Other advantages are scalability (pay as you go pricing), more flexibility, pay only for what you utilize, faster setup, ease of use, and many more.

Following are some Cloud hosting Advantages

Scalability
The key advantage of cloud hosting over the technologies that preceded it and the current alternatives is the ease of scalability. Hosting in the cloud opens up the possibility for your infrastructure to encompass multiple servers to provide extra capacity. This allows for the flexibility to scale up quickly to deal with unexpected traffic surges, but also to create an infrastructure that can grow with your requirements over a longer period.

Better performance
For the reasons mentioned above that cloud hosting offers greater scalability, it also offers better performance. That’s because in addition to the increased capacity leading to increased availability for your customers, it also allows for load balancing across multiple servers. The end result is less strain on any one server and better user experience for everyone.

Reduced costs
Cloud hosting can remove the need for you to buy, house and maintain your own hardware, which reduces capital expenditure. And the ease with which you can scale up or down means you don’t have to pay for unused capacity.

Disaster recovery
Another cloud hosting advantage is that is makes disaster recovery much easier, especially if you're already using a multi-server hosting architecture.

I hope this information will be helpful!
