A cloud provider is a company that provides services and solutions based on cloud computing, using a wide range of virtual computing resources, including virtual servers, storage systems and networks.

For flexible infrastructure management, cloud provider offers customers a tool in the form of a self-service portal, with which you can create, delete, adjust the provided capacities (storage, memory, network), network parameters, and more.

How does a cloud provider differ from a data center

The difference between a cloud provider and a physical data center is significant.

  • Firstly, the data center is a platform for hosting the "cloud", without which no supplier can do. Usually, a "cloud provider" rents the allocated space in several data centers, thereby providing the possibility of emergency switching.
  • Secondly, being a specialized platform for reliable placement and continuous operation, the data center offers a range of services for the storage, transfer and placement of corporate information resources and the organization of backup IT platforms.

The services provided by different data centers may differ.

The most popular services offered by data centers

  • Placement of equipment (Colocation).
  • Backup data center.
  • Maintenance of IT equipment.
  • Technical implementation.
  • Protection against DDoS attacks.
  • Warehouse rental.
  • Renting a DRP office.
  • Renting a section.
  • Renting a dedicated server.

The provision of cloud services is not a profile type of data center services. But sometimes on the data center website you can find information about a "cloud service", which, as a rule, is provided not by the data center itself, but by a trusted partner of the data center in the person of a cloud provider.
