Increased Scalability:

The first thing that i am going to discuss is the scalability means how “Elastic” is the service? Will the business grow with it? Will it manage the data according to the growth? These are some questions that almost covers this heading. Many of the merchants have large stores with heavy traffic on various events like new product launching or on any event that fulfills the urgency of short-term demand requires to be managed.
But if you use cloud service instead of any hardware, during the promotional event you can just upgrade the servers and when the event is out you can downgrade it,  that is the big advantage but it is not possible if you use any hardware.

Increased Security with Fewer Risks:

The most important thing is security and less risk issues. The security solutions of a cloud service is higher than any other hosting servers. You don’t want your data to be leaked that is a big concern before choosing the hosting for the Magento store. So cloud hosting is the best possible and available solution for Magento store with increased security.

To see if the company is following all up to date security standards just ask them about their security policy.

Well cloud hosting provide you the backups which will make sure that your data will not get loss and will get restore. The data is stored in different remote locations so people are more relaxed about the loss of their data.

If your store is not speeded enough then your customer will get annoyed and will not enjoy their visit or purchase anything from your store. So cloud hosting for your store has solved these issues. As it gives the cache management from the server side and helps your store to run faster with higher and increased speed by providing you Redis, Memcached, Varnish.

Cost is most important and primary thing for moving the Magento Store to the cloud. Purchasing a hardware and a bandwidth will become costly whether you have made and deployed your store cheaply or not , A cloud based company will allow you to save 80% of the costs associated with the normal and traditional ecommerce rollout.

Manageable

The most important thing is that how easy the server is to manage as the servers of the hardware are more complex to be managed but if we talk about cloud hosting they are more easy to get managed due to web-based console. If a cloud hosting is more automated than the management can be done with greater efficiency without letting you compromise on control.

Reliable and Recoverable

Many of the organization do not take care of DR (Disaster Recovery) for their applications. If you would talk about the hardware hosting, there are less chances of recovering of data but cloud hosting is more reliable and keeps backup of the data and can be recovered whenever needed. To make the backup of the data in cloud you have to clone the virtual machine by doing so the speed is also increased for up to 10x and thus! Saves the time.

Latest PHP version

Cloud companies need to update them selves to support the latest technologies. Magento runs on PHP so you have to make sure that the cloud hosting must provide you the latest version of PHP.
