Python has evolved to become one of the most popular languages for building complex applications quickly and efficiently. It is versatile, easy to code, and has several forward-looking features, that make it one of the most resilient programming languages even after over thirty years. Today, it is used for cutting edge applications, such as artificial intelligence, data science, Internet of Things (IoT), and web development, many of which require powerful machines with large storage and processing power, that are typically not available on personal computers. In this article, we will delve into the requirements of Python hosting.
What Are the Advantages of Python Hosting?
The key to building faster and better Python applications often lies in the framework and infrastructure. Hosting Python environments in the cloud can help developers in many ways.
- Developers can take advantage of a serverless platform and focus on their code, instead of worrying about the infrastructure.
- Computing resources, such as RAM, storage, and GPU can be scaled on-demand based on the workload.
- The development environment, along with databases can be accessed remotely, using any internet-enabled device, such as tablets, mobiles, and laptops.
- Python workloads can be protected with enterprise-grade security features.
What Are the Considerations for Python Hosting?
The system requirements for Python hosting depends on the area of usage. While backend programming typically has lower system requirements, using Python for machine/ deep learning and other heavy applications requires a GPU-enabled virtual desktop or server with large storage and higher processing power. Here are some of the considerations before opting for Python hosting.
- Programming in Python invariably involves the use of different modules and frameworks. The web host must be able to support commonly used interpreters and modules.
- The host should allow persistent processes to run and must provide Secure Shell (SSH) access.
- The host should be able to support popular relational and non-relational databases.
- The hosting service provider must have sufficiently secure servers to protect against advanced attacks.
- The servers must be fast and should be optimized for high performance.
- There should be support for both web UI and command lines for managing files.
- Users should be able to deploy, manage, and scale their Python apps easily.
- Admins must be able to use tools and dashboards of their choice to monitor CPU, throughput, response time, and memory to diagnose errors.
- There should be regular and automated backups of the server to minimize the chances of data loss.
