Cloud Servers in South Africa

What better place to host your website, software, or platform than on a cloud server? You not only get to enjoy the reliability and scalability that comes with the cloud; you get great performace as well. There are a number of cloud server providers in South Africa but first, let’s get to the basics.

What’s a cloud server?

A cloud server is a virtualized server created from resources spread out across multiple physical machines. Instead of having a single server that is dedicated to your site, you get to benefit from the use of many servers.

How does it work?

If one server has more traffic, your site is automatically routed to the idle cloud. In that case you will hardly experience any downtime. The cloud servers use large Storage Area Network (SAN) or clustered file systems like Ceph to allocate storage resources.

How do you pay?

With cloud hosting, you have the option to pay as you go. That means you are billed per hour or day based on the resources you require. Cloud companies will usually have varying rates for every resource. You can use a cost calculator to find the total price.

There are also monthly package options for those who utilize standard resources 24/7/365. The resources are bundled up into a package that you pay upfront and enjoy  whole month. These packages normally come at a discounted price. Here’s a list of companies providing cloud servers in South Africa and their starter monthly packages:
