Today many services are being provided by the Web Server. Many of the servers are based on Cloud computing which is popular amongst the researchers, scientists & entrepreneurs.
Cloud Computing is distributed computing over a network, and has the ability to run a program or application on many connected computers at the same time.
It is used, where various computing concepts that involve a large number of computers are connected via real-time communication network such as the Internet.
Various services provided by the Web server are:
1. Cost Efficient
Web server is the most cost efficient method to use, maintain and upgrade. Traditional desktop software costs companies a lot in terms of finance. On the other hand, it is available at much cheaper rates. Besides, there are many one- time-payment, pay-as-you-go and other scalable options available, which makes it very reasonable for the company.
2. Resource Sharing
Web Server has the capability to store unlimited information such as Google Drives, Cloud computing etc. The space where the data can be stored is shared by the other users at the same time like hard disk can be shared on physical network as LAN.
3. Data Sharing
With the help of web servers one can easily access the information from anywhere, where there is an Internet connection using Google docs such as Documents, Excel sheets, Drawings, Powerpoint presentations etc.
4. Backup and Recovery
As all the data now a days is stored on web servers, backing it up and restoring the same is relatively much easier than storing the same on a physical device. Hence, the entire process of backup and recovery much simpler than other traditional methods of data storage.
