Managed AWS solutions

There is no doubt that managed AWS solutions can be extremely powerful and valuable for your business. But with the range of tools and options available to AWS businesses, day-to-day infrastructure management activities of the service can be demanding and complicated, taking significant expertise and resources away from more profitable tasks.

At Wirehive we offer managed AWS solutions that provide you with the opportunity to benefit from agile and DevOps methods without having to rely on your in-house staff for infrastructure management. Our AWS engineers have a great deal of technical knowledge and practical experience which we can bring to your business.

Rather than investing significantly in internal training or hiring staff with a specific AWS background, our managed solutions can make an immediate difference to your setup, allowing you to take advantage of the best products and services of AWS.

Frequently asked questions

Whats is cloud hosting?

Cloud hosting is a different way of hosting websites. Traditionally they would be hosted on a single server in a data centre somewhere. Cloud hosting however places them on a virtual machine that pulls its computing resources from a number of different physical machines in different locations.

Because of this, resources are not fixed, and can be scaled up or down according to the needs of the individual website. Also if a traditional hosting server fails everything on it goes down. If a cloud hosting server fails the slack is picked up by the other servers meaning the websites stay online.

What is the difference between cloud hosting and cloud computing?

In its purest form web hosting is a static process. The files needed to display a website are hosted on a web server. In cloud hosting this server is a virtual machine that draws its resources from a number of physical machines. Cloud computing covers cloud hosting, but also a vast amount of different services as well. Data is sent to a remote network – the cloud – and there it is stored, or processed. All sorts of innovative services can be utilised in cloud computing, from machine learning and artificial intelligence, through to the ability to access and integrate services like maps, or voice recognition.

Which Cloud hosting service is best?

That depends entirely on what you are trying to achieve. If what you are looking for is a simple static web hosting plan then you might look to something like our Public cloud. But if you are looking to develop and integrate innovative practices in your site, or would like to utilise things like auto-scaling then you would be better choosing something Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, of Google Cloud Platform.

Is cloud hosting better than shared hosting?

That depends entirely on what you mean by better. Shared hosting remains one of the cheapest ways of getting a website on the internet, but cheaper does not always equate better. If you are judging on things like site speed, low downtime, or access to innovative services then yes, cloud hosting is better. So our advice is always to pick your hosting plan according to your specific needs, not just your budget.

What is a cloud server?

A traditional server is a physical machine that lives in a single data centre. A cloud server is different. It is a virtual machine that draws its resources from a number of different physical servers in different locations. It is accessed remotely rather than by connecting directly to the machine itself. They are also sometimes called virtual servers.

Is cloud hosting more reliable?

Yes. Because the computing resources are shared between a number of different physical machines in different locations cloud servers are much more robust and resilient to things like power outages, machine failures, and other common causes of outages. If one physical machine fails then the others pick up the slack until the first is brought back online.
