Many hosting providers are beginning to offer web-based software distribution models through virtual server hosting. These methods of deploying the cloud allow businesses to leverage SaaS enterprise resource planning applications through virtual private servers at a third-party data center.
According to the ERP Cloud News, web-based hosted cloud software can provide organizations with scalability, flexibility and pay-per-use economic models, while removing the need for client software, on-premise IT infrastructure and extended deployment cycles.
By eliminating the IT infrastructure associated with on-premise computing, and delivering resources in a pay-per-use model, cloud computing in virtual server hosting environments can provide significant economic savings, according to the news source.
Overall, hosted cloud services, which are frequently deployed through a VPS server, are successful in enterprise resource planning because organizations often need to respond to changing conditions in the consumer market. With a cloud computing solution, companies can adapt their software and hardware deployment easily, allowing them to flexibly address new issues in the enterprise.
A recent report from the Economist explained VPS server environments have added a new level of reliability and performance to virtual server hosting environments. By using a VPS server, organizations can leverage many of the benefits of dedicated server environments. Furthermore, VPS hosting can match on-premise hardware as a tenth of the cost, the report said.
