Many people still do not know or are confused when speaking of the major differences between Cloud Server Hosting, Virtual Private Servers (VPS) and Dedicated Servers. Starting with the most basic, you know what to serve?
Quite simply, all the three technologies are used to store data, host websites and structures of e- mail, besides running various applications and softwares. So if they serve for the same thing because they are different?
Each has a different characteristic, let us understand :
It is a physical machine, usually allocated on a fully equipped data center and is totally dedicated to one customer who requires high reliability and high performance hardware ( processing, memory , etc.)… If the client needs more resources, you must purchase more hardware and manually install or exchange server. Its main advantage is the high performance and flexibility and its disadvantage is the high price and inability to upgrade / downgrade immediately. This is one of the best flexible solution than shared web hosting, as because the owner gets a total control over the hosting environment and every aspects of the dedicated hosting, which includes the selection of operating system, server hardware, etc… Some web hosting providers may provide the server administration for free, but usually, the client has to manage the server administration and management tasks.
Cloud Server Hosting (Cloud Computing)
Already Cloud Server is a fractionation of a number of resources available to multiple servers and storage arrays. Through an intelligent architecture, you can allocate these resources allows scalability without losing performance. Besides the economy and flexibility, there are numerous advantages to this technology.
Virtual Private Servers (VPS)
It is the fractionation of resources from one physical server, this fractionation being allocated to a single client. VPS is an ideal choice for businesses that requires same flexibility, reliability, security, root access, stability, etc… at much affordable rates that a dedicated server offers. In this technology there is no guarantee of processing and in case of hardware failures, client applications that depend on it will also fail, as there is integration servers like the Cloud.
We simplify the concepts so that everyone can understand, of course there are many other details, but overall this is it!
