It’s been months in the making, but as of today, March 3, all websites produced and managed by Deckard & Company are hosted on servers utilizing Google Cloud. What does this mean? In short: speed, security and efficiency.
“The cloud” has been around for years now. Generically, when people discuss “the cloud,” they mean the internet. Sometimes marketers refer to “the cloud” just to insert a bit of techno-babble into their copy, but it has come to mean the coordination of online solutions to further the potential of…well, just about anything we do on computers.
Cloud-based solutions have become popular alternatives for the “old-school” method of storing everything on a physical computer. That means that storage and performance don’t get bogged down by the limitations of a single machine. The cloud allows you to crowd-source (or “cloud-source,” if you like puns) processing.
When it comes to website hosting, the cloud allows your website to do all the stuff it does wherever people access it.
Specifically, we use Google Cloud because Google already has a massive global infrastructure: The company has lots of computers working everywhere. With countless Google servers supporting your website’s functions, you can rest assured that people everywhere will be able to experience your website the way it’s meant to be experienced.
Now back to your regularly scheduled work week.
