The major functionalities that may interest you are the ones that affect the operation of your web pages. By being on a cloud, you have the ability to scale your usage by how much space, memory or power that you actually need at any given time. When presented with a spike in usage, you do not need to physically move to another server as the hosting system sees that and does it for you. The added up times in a cloud hosting system are very good as the downed servers’ information is transferred and that server is brought back up on line, usually without you knowing it.
The integration of dissimilar technologies is one of the very best things that you have in the cloud system. When you want to use programs or languages that don’t work really well together on one server, the other server that can do the job will step in and takes that process over so you do not lose the functionality of that mix. The gathering clouds, in this case, are good for you.
