Is VPS a better choice than Cloud?

28 August 2020

VPS can never be a better choice than cloud. However there are some pros of purchasing a VPS server.

Mainly a VPS server is less expensive than a cloud server.

There is no file or data which occurs between VPS clients on the shared server. They are kept seperate.

If it is needed one VPS can be rebooted without affecting other VPS on the shared hosting server.

Some of the drawbacks of VPS server when compared to a cloud server are as follows:

  • A VPS server does not offer a high-availability, if one of the physical server fails then there is a chance that all the VPS server will fail.
  • There can be some security concerns. If the customer on the shared server is not taking the security concern seriously and then gets hacked or gets a virus then a VPS can have a negative impact.
  • Computing resources are being shared between the clients hence RAM, bandwidth and the CPU performance can have an affect if another VPS on the shared server is demanding a higher load.
  • There can be only one operating system which can be utilized by each of the physical server.
  • There can be only one OS which can be utilized by each of the physical server.
  • There is no scalability, here the storage is based on the physical server limitations. Once the VPS capacity is reached, you will either have to buy more space or look for other options. This can take many hours or even days of downtime for migration of the new solution.

Advantages of Cloud Server

  • There is more scalability you will be able to add more servers in moment's notice.
  • Clients will be able to add the custom network architecture, firewalls, load balancing and IP deployment.
  • There is high availability in a cloud server if one of the physical server fails cloud servers are migrated to another physical server without experiencing any type of outage.
  • Cloud is completely secure since you will be having your own server virtually. If the client on the shared cloud gets hacked or gets a virus, then the cloud server will be completely seperated with a no risk to the data.
  • Here each of the customers on the cloud will be able to select their specific operating system.
  • Unlimited storage is provided in a cloud server.
