Cloud Hosting

QuickBlox software can be deployed in a dedicated cloud managed by QuickBlox, or in your own virtual cloud managed by yourself and hosted by a cloud provider of your choosing. Both options come with various benefits including data security, DevOps support, GDPR compliance, HIPAA compliance, and more.

More choice & control with your own preferred Cloud provider

Key features


Choose where to host

At QuickBlox we don’t restrict where you host your data. Choose the best location for your dedicated server among several providers. This flexibility allows you to get close to your customer base while adhering to the specific data regulations in a given geographical area.


Public, Private, or Hybrid cloud hosting

Your budget, technical needs, and security requirements determine who you host with, not our company policy. Whether you choose a public or private cloud provider, or opt for a hybrid hosting environment, QuickBlox can support you.


Better visibility of used resources inside your cloud provider

By deploying software within your own cloud environment you enjoy more transparency of resources running your services. Maximise server resources to your advantage. QuickBlox can work with you to determine the most efficient means to process traffic and data consumption to save hosting costs especially in high bandwidth use cases.


Flexible levels of monitoring and access

As a default QuickBlox manages servers in your environment so that you are not required to provide any technical involvement. But if you have security compliance needs we can work with your DevOps and info security teams to determine the appropriate level of QuickBlox access and management of your infrastructure.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cloud Hosting?

Cloud hosting means that you run your application (and store & process customer data related to that application) in a cloud account provided by a third-party cloud hosting provider. Cloud hosting consists of a network of connected virtual and physical cloud servers, granting you access to important computing resources like storage, bandwidth, and RAM.

When you use QuickBlox software, you can host your chat application on QuickBlox’s own managed cloud account, or you can opt to set up your own cloud account directly with a cloud provider, giving you more control, but with QuickBlox still providing a fully managed service.

What are the benefits of cloud hosting?

Cloud hosting saves you significant costs associated with setting up and maintaining an on premises infrastructure. Cloud hosting is very flexible, letting you scale up and down to match your changing needs for bandwidth, storage, and memory.

What is cloud video conferencing?

Cloud video conferencing means your cloud video conferencing solution is hosted in the cloud as opposed to on your company’s own servers. This enables you to host high definition video meetings with anyone who has access to the internet.

QuickBlox supports cloud based video conferencing, whether it’s hosted on our owned managed cloud or on your own private cloud or public cloud account.

Which is the best cloud hosting provider to use?

The best cloud hosting provider depends on your particular needs for performance, location, pricing model, security, regulatory (HIPAA) compliance etc. We have experience working with a wide variety of global cloud providers including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Alibaba cloud and more. Please see our reviews:

Is cloud hosting secure?

Cloud Hosting is generally a secure option. QuickBlox has taken additional steps to enhance cloud security by offering the following:

  • Data encryption
  • The option for our customers to set up and manage their cloud account directly with the cloud provider (rather than requiring them to run their application on our server, which many other as-a-service providers do)
  • Additional security add-ons, like intrusion detection, extensive monitoring, High Availability and Disaster recovery, and virus scanning etc.
