My biggest problem with "Cloud" hosting providers, is how many of them offer regular shared hosting, and call it cloud hosting!

"What do you really expect from a cloud service?"
I expect it to be truly cloud based hosting. Converged infrastructure, spread across multiple machines, in multiple locations.

Well said, some company in Taiwan even named vps as cloud hosting.

It's pretty common unfortunately that people name their services wrong..

The true meaning of the term refers to the concept of accessing data and applications over the web/internet instead of on the desktop. When I first started hosting and offered Office 2003 over the web it was known as ASP - Application Service Provider. It didn't gain much traction due to most people were using dialup to access internet. But I was the only host offering FrontPage as an online site builder

There are many things and it all depends on end user. According to my experience, most of the cloud users give high-priority to auto-scalability and elastic storage.

What does it mean to me? It means true scalability and next to no downtime. I have found a lot of providers offer products where you can't edit disk space without deleting a virtual machine....can't truly scale depending on our needs.

Lots of gotchas still in the cloud arena, if you ask me....You don't find out about it until you try and edit the disk space, and can't.

Some allow you to edit the disk space in Linux but not Windows, for example. How does that make sense?

I think increase should be fine but not if you want to decrease size since it will cause data loss.

According to me all the features are important for a customer who is looking for cloud VPS,, priority wise he can go either price, network features, dedicated resources, scalability & simplicity.

Hi,

There is a lot of misconception on this. When someone say Cloud, they refer the data should be accessed from anywhere anytime as needed, and having stick to it, some of them say, my website has data and it can be accessed from anywhere anytime, so its a cloud.

The term cloud is a very huge and has many meanings defined by everyone in their own way. To me Cloud, would not be focused only on one service. One part of it is, deployment of application in a cloud where it can be utilized and accessed anytime, anywhere as per need, like a services deployed in the Cloud (IaaS, PaaS, etc.).

I expect it to be what the definition of cloud hosting says it is. There are too many providers manipulating with the name and features of cloud hosting nowadays.

Well said. Riding on the ignorance of the customers to full them into buying regular shared hosting believing its a cloud service is spread all over the Internet these days.

I expect it to be truly cloud based hosting. Converged infrastructure, spread across multiple machines, in multiple locations.
However, "Converged infrastructure, spread across multiple machines, in multiple locations" has been around long before "cloud hosting." In that sense it is as "true cloud" as a vps. Your configuration hasn't been as commoditized as vps and thus the illusion its something new and different and is "true cloud." Prior the the new pacakaging, it was called "redundancy," "mirroring," etc and other general and technical terms -- in other words it was called what it really is. haha

Problem is some hosts do not have any "mirror" etc as you call it but continue to say they are selling Cloud hosting. That's the "untrue cloud" being referred to hahahah
