ACCA guide to... managed server hosting

As internet connections are getting faster and prices have fallen, cloud-based services are fast becoming the norm

Traditionally, if a business required a network server, it would purchase the hardware and have it installed on-site – but cloud solutions are changing requirements. Managed server hosting involves leasing a server that is not physically located on your premises but is accessed online through the internet. You can use it in the same way as a traditional network server – but it’s cheaper to operate and faster to deploy.
