There are many different aspects to cloud computing, not least concerning virtualisation and security. It is often the case that these different areas are such vast fields in their own right that no one company can provide all of the solutions, so in this case, partnering with the best in the industry will be required. Of course, most cloud servers will make use of pre-existing technology but bringing all of this technology together, harmonising it with software and creating a computing solution that works in concert will be the domain of the cloud hosting company. One of the options open to them is VMware hosting which is a piece of software offering virtualisation that can apportion cloud resources better, as well as offer scaling solutions for particular users. With powerful software such as this, there is massive scope for not only keeping every user equipped with all of the resources they need, but it also enables an unprecedented level of control.
VMware hosting can offer so much in terms of virtualisation, but it all means nothing without the proper security measures being in place when it comes to data transfer. SFTP hosting (Secure File Transfer) can provide peace of mind for those who are sending sensitive information from remote locations. A hosting company that implements this solution will be able to offer secure and reliable transfers of potential large amounts of data to any location in the world. There are compliances that should be met by the cloud company when offering SFTP hosting such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, ISO and FIPS standards. Ultimately however, SFTP should provide you not only with a more secure environment, but also a faster one. It should not increase complexity, but work to offer a smoother, more trustworthy method that shouldn’t cost an exorbitant amount of money.
