I've observed or been a part of buying decisions for a few thousand server customers, from small-business owners getting a website online for the first time to established platforms with tens of millions of visits every day. While each of those purchasers had different requirements and priorities for a cloud server, a few key deciding factors were consistent across those decisions:
Cloud hosting sometimes gets confused with a virtual private server, or VPS. Both configurations rely on the virtualization of physical server resources. Although a cloud server can be called a VPS, a VPS is not a cloud server. One of the key differences, aside from the infrastructure configurations, is the payment model — the automation and vast network associated with cloud hosting enables providers to offer cheaper, pay-as-you-go solutions that can be scaled up or down at a moment’s notice.

Next, we want to understand what a virtual private server is and how it works. The VPS is a private, dedicated hosting environment that is on a host, parent server, or a cluster of servers through the use of virtualization. We implement a hypervisor or virtual machine manager (computer software, firmware, or hardware that creates and runs virtual machines) to run virtual machines on a host/parent server. Each virtual machine is called a guest instance or child instance, relating a guest to a host and a child to a parent.
Easily deploy VPS instances inside our control panel. Choose from any of the most popular operating system flavors. Such as Centos, Ubuntu, and Debian. Windows VPS is also available on our Hyper-V or KVM platform. Move on to selecting the amount of power you need by increasing the number of slices. And finally select any additional options such as the control panel you would like installed.
The security of VPS hosting is almost on par with that of a dedicated physical server. The VPS is independent of any other VPSes on the same physical host, as if it were a separate machine, but poor security measures taken by the owner of one VPS could affect others on the same physical server. However, this possibility is much less likely than with shared hosting. The centralized location of the physical host offers added security to those operations with critical data whose location must be known and restricted to comply with data security regulations.
Customization with cloud hosting expands to include the possibility to tweak network architecture, firewalls, load balancing, and IP addresses. However, the need to distribute functioning across many servers may leave less control over some hosting settings. Both Windows and Linux clouds are readily available, so you will get your choice of OS. Because a cloud environment is more complex, it may require more technical expertise to configure, especially to gain the full advantages of the cloud network.

A hybrid server model also gives companies greater data security. For example, with a SysGen hybrid model, clients can back up their data to an onsite server as well as a cloud solution. SysGen’s backup solution partner, Datto, introduces next-gen backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity solutions.
