Installing and managing cloud apps can be a hassle without proper customization options. Ideally, apps should be installed in seconds, with the option to do so for several at once. Backing up and restoring apps is also important. An effective VPS gives you the means to do all of these, along with ease of browsing, full installation configuration, and access to hundreds of the best cloud-based applications, including WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Magento, and SugarCRM.

Popular Cloud Apps

It’s no surprise that certain cloud applications have larger clientele bases due to many people working from home or in an online capacity. The following list of cloud apps shows some of the go-to choices that clients from all industries choose.


WordPress is by far one of the most utilized word processing apps on the market, both for professional and casual projects. One reason for its popularity is the interface, which serves to help newbies along with veterans who want to experiment with their site layouts. Importing a blog or movie review was never easier. Users can swap out imagery to give their site a new look or cement certain themes for their clientele.


Open-source web content management systems like Drupal provide a back-end framework for at least 13% of the top 10,000 websites worldwide. Like WordPress, you have your choice of personal blogs and corporate needs. Drupal also works well for government sites. Systems use Drupal for knowledge management and for business collaboration because users can quickly and easily set up a complex and specific product in just a few steps. Drupal’s core release contains basic features such as user account registration and maintenance, menu management, RSS feeds, taxonomy, page layout customization, and system administration. With Drupal, a core installation can serve as a simple website, a single- or multi-user blog, an Internet forum, or a community website providing user-generated content.


Joomla is another CMS that is perfect for publishing web content. Your site can feature discussion forums, photo galleries, and e-commerce possibilities. Developed by a community of volunteers supported with the legal, organizational, and financial resources, Joomla is written in PHP, uses object-oriented programming techniques and software design patterns, and stores data in a MySQL database. Look no further for page caching, RSS feeds, blogs, search, and support for language internationalization. According to Wikipedia, Joomla was estimated to be “the third most used CMS on the Internet, after WordPress and Shopify.”


An e-commerce platform built on open source technology, Magento provides online merchants with a versatile shopping cart system that makes purchases easy for customers. This cloud application gives you control over the appearance, content, and functionality of an online store so it will reach its full potential. Magento offers powerful marketing, search engine optimization, and catalog-management tools. For creative types, Magento has a variety of plug-ins and themes to enhance any customer’s online experience. Known for custom functionality, Magento is designed to be utilized as an application by someone who does not have a whole lot of experience as a developer.


SugarCRM started as a game-changing open-source, but this freemium CRM product has turned into a highly popular, AI-driven cloud platform that keeps businesses heading into the future. This CRM platform delivers a high-definition customer experience without relying on high-maintenance CRMs that require too much manual entry. Developers of SugarCRM say that the platform does the work for you, so you don’t have to do all the heavy lifting of building your products from the ground up.
