  1. Choosing VPS or cloud hosting depends based on your requirements and services you need. Below mentioned are some of the differences between cloud and VPS hosting that will help you to get a clear idea to choose the right one.

    Difference between cloud hosting and VPS hosting

    VPS hosting:

    VPS is an old traditional virtualization technology where one physical server, divided into several smaller server containers that each act as their own virtual server environment.

    Pros:

    • Typically less expensive than cloud servers.
    • If needed one VPS can be rebooted without affecting other VPSs.

    Cons:

    • They do not offer high-availability. If a physical server fails, all VPSs on that server fail.
    • Security concerns. If one container compromised on your node then your VPS could be negatively affected.
    • Computing resources are shared between all server, RAM, bandwidth and CPU performance can be affected if a VPS is demanding a higher load.

    Cloud Hosting

    Cloud Hosting services that are provided to customers is a peace of multiple interconnected servers that comprise a cloud and as opposed to traditional hosting forms such as shared hosting, and dedicated hosting, data is rendered from various servers.

    Pros

    • Custom Infrastructure – clients can include custom network architecture, firewalls, load balancing and IP deployment.
    • Availability and Scalability – if one physical server fails, cloud servers/instance can be moved to another physical server without an outage.
    • Completely secure since you virtually have your own server and completely separated with no risk to your data from amid.

    Cons:

    • Typically, a little more expensive than VPS.

    A Cloud server can be labeled as a VPS server but a VPS container is not a cloud server.

    On the other hand, both cloud and VPS server are using virtualization technology such as KVM, VMWare and HyperV, and OpenStack.
