Questions tagged [cloud-hosting]

Cloud hosting is hosting a service, commonly a website, on multiple distributed servers. Like a server farm, this provides greater performance (through load balancing) and availability than using a single server, but the distributed nature of the cloud means requests can be serviced closer to the client and makes it more tolerant of network failures.
