Managed cloud hosting is a process in which organizations share and access resources, including databases, hardware and software tools, across a remote network via multiple servers in another location.
In managed cloud hosting, servers are purchased in slices or as a virtual server. However, before considering costs, the key focus of managed cloud hosting is on security and consistent availability. In contrast to servers that are acquired on an hourly basis, managed cloud hosting is delivered in the form of monthly (or longer) contracts for businesses, which run enterprise-critical apps over long periods.
Managed cloud hosting is also known as managed cloud computing.
