From small to medium, all businesses are getting attracted to Cloud. But it may take some time to investigate a perfect Cloud Hosting provider in India once you have decided to move your business to the cloud. So, here are some factors that will help you to find an affordable and reliable cloud platform-
- Company’s Standard- Look out for the company’s size because it may translate to easier assistance if you face any issue. Make sure to check their presale and post-sale dealing behavior. Also check the experience of that company in its sector to ensure its long term viability.
- Who are their customers and what they say? – All companies, including cloud service providers’ reputation is based upon their clientele and their reviews. Mostly all companies claim to offer the best services but to well set your future, you must evaluate their history via review sites and their social media pages. If you do not find anything favorable, you’re free to move to the next ;)
- Which clouds they deal with- In my opinion, a good cloud provider is one who is able to provide all kinds of cloud services whether it is Microsoft Cloud, Google or Amazon Web Services. The reason behind this suggestion is that there will be an increase in the number of options and thus the increased probability of you choosing the cloud that fulfills all your requirements (if they don’t get fulfilled with Google, go for AWS or Microsoft).
- Pricing Structure- Although price doesn’t matter when you’re searching for quality but why to spend more when there are suitable packages available that are affordable and of high-quality at the same time. There are different types of cloud hosting providers available, some charge on hourly basis for data usage, some charge per minutes, so choose such kinds of plans according to your needs. Also make sure there are no hidden charges.
Technical support- To avoid networking problems in future, you should ensure that the cloud provider provides good quality support on an ongoing basis. Take some time to explore that how much efforts the cloud provider puts in to keep your servers running and to educate you regarding problems. Check out the ways to contact them (chat, mail, phone etc.) and their working hours too. If they’re able to meet all your requirements, take a smart decision and let them work for you
