The biggest difference between the two server environments is scale. If you’re looking to launch as quickly as possible and don’t care about scale, then a VPS server can be a great starting point. However, if you demand a flexible hosting setup and a high level of site performance and storage then it’s worth checking out a cloud hosting environment.
Cloud Hosting is a new form of web hosting that has gained great popularity in recent years. The fundamental idea behind Cloud Hosting is 'Divide and Rule' - a virtualization layer allows for separation of resources required by the server across instances and/or devices and this connected entity is known as a ‘Cloud’. This design allows Cloud to scale & offers greater protection from isolated device failures.
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 common pricing model in cloud hosting is to pay as you go without large upfront costs. Be wary of any plan or hosting company that seems to buck this trend. Inquire about the security of the datacenters that house the servers. One study found that one third of data breaches involved some compromise of physical security. The decentralized nature of cloud hosting makes data security more complicated. Be sure that the network you will be using is compliant with regulations such as PCI DSS and HIPAA. Look for third-party audits to confirm this.
Rather than being hosted on one single instances of a physical server, hosting is delivered on a virtual partition which draws its resource, such as disk space, from an extensive network of underlying physical servers. If one server goes offline it will have no effect on availability, as the virtual servers will continue to pull resource from the remaining network of servers.
