RESEARCH 》 Grid Hosting vs CDN Hosting

These days web hosting firms are providing a new kind of service called Grid Hosting.

So, what is Grid Hosting? Grid hosting usually means that the web space you rent is not located on one (potentially shared) machine, but is more like a “virtual machine” which is hosted on a cluster of servers (which is a grid). So a service provided of this form is called Grid Hosting. Usually Grid Hosting may cost a little extra than the regular hosting service. Customers who already have regular hosting package can sometimes upgrade to grid hosting package(s), if your web hosting provider offers such services and a scheme for it.

While resources on a single machine are limited and might run out, especially if it’s a shared host and you have to share your resources (memory, bandwidth) with potentially hundreds or thousands of other users who are hosted on the same machine as you, grid hosting is more flexible, as your virtual website could leverage resources from more machines in the cluster if necessary. This of course also increases reliability of the website, as the failure of one grid node doesn’t matter, another server takes over, while the failure of your dedicated or shared host takes your website offline.

Web hosting firms refer single machine hosting commonly as website hosting.

Grid Hosting vs. CDN Services: Hence this is indeed similar to CDN Objectives and CDN like service. But the main difference is CDN vendors usually offer only CDN packages and application data acceleration services. In a way for SOHO and mid-level organizations may use Grid Hosting services, but still any large organization and or any website with huge amount of hits per second has to go for dedicated CDN Service. Sometimes it is also required for security purposes.

Also Grid Hosting will have limitations of number of nodes, unlike CDN. The advantage of CDN is all about how much shared/distributed and how big is its network. So for now when we assume CDN like service, it is far far much bigger and much wide spread network across Internet unlike Grid Hosting scenario. But as a cheap and temporary option, and also for very small websites if there is an option you can opt for Grid Hosting till the time you are not getting huge amount of load/hits to your website.

Why TOFFEE is forked from TrafficSqueezer ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TrafficSqueezer is an open-source WAN Optimization project. TrafficSqueezer is mainly a research project which is started around mid-2006. It is initially started as a research (or prototype) code even before it is officially registered in Sourceforge.net. But this code is just primitive user-space raw socket modules. This is later refined and a pre-alpha version is created. Followed by which Alpha release. This prototype code is moved from user-space to Linux Kernel (Kernel Space) and then the journey begin in terms of making a serious WAN Optimization solution. Once the pre-beta and beta releases are complete the mainstream series is started.

A study on WAN Optimization Techniques ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
There are various techniques with which one can optimize their WAN Network Data. Any long distance communication can be considered as WAN Network. A decade ago any network connecting two countries, considered as a WAN network, and a network within a city as MAN and soon. But these days in general any long distance communication is considered as WAN Network. Such as your Mobile communication networks, Satellite networks, Space Networks (Deep space networks), Trans-Atlantic cable networks, etc.
