Tech Observations #5: Cloud servers

From the research that I’ve done and from what we’ve learned in class, I feel like – out of all the options out there – cloud hosting will be the best bet for my site. Here’s why:

* The main reason is that cloud computing will allow my site to adapt to my traffic fluctuation. While breaking news happens every day somewhere around the world, there are definitely breaking news that will attract more viewers than others. I need servers that can handle low traffic on some days and extremely high traffic in others.

* It’s more for my buck. With cloud computing, you basically pay for what you use. Were I to host this all on my own, it’d mean hundreds of dollars in servers — and I still might crash with high traffic.

* I don’t need my own IT guys. The service provider will answer all my questions. Awesome.
