You may be wondering just what you can host in the cloud. Practically speaking, anything you can host on a normal web server, or your computer’s hard drive, can be hosted in the cloud.
- Static websites can be hosted in the cloud
- Dynamic web pages
- Web applications
- Data you want stored long term
- Back up data or information
- Recovery files
- Images and graphics
- Videos, podcasts and other multimedia
Anything that can be stored and transferred digitally can be hosted or transported via the cloud, or a cloud – private or public. The only limitations to cloud computing are those that you place on yourself. And the beauty of it is you can scale up or down as you need to.
