Virtual Private Servers have long been recognized as a way for businesses to reduce IT costs and increase operational efficiency. By isolating applications and programs within one virtual server that’s set aside solely for you, VPS provides high levels of privacy, security and control. But while VPS delivers cost savings on hardware and offers the flexibility to run multiple operating systems or sets of programs on individual servers at the same time, it doesn't scale well.

Cloud hosting is the latest form of hosting that has become extremely popular over the past few years. The main concept of cloud hosting is "Divide and Rule" – the resources required for maintaining your website are spread across a cluster of servers that work together, termed as "the cloud". This greatly reduces chances of any downtimes in case of a server malfunction.
Cloud hosting is an alternative to hosting websites on single servers (either dedicated or shared servers) and can be considered as an extension of the concept of clustered hosting where websites are hosted on multiple servers. With cloud hosting, however, the network of servers that are used is vast and often pulled from different data centres in different locations.
