VPS, Cloud VPS and Cloud Server are currently the three most modern methods for data storage as well as other jobs. All three methods are commonly used. However, there are a number of different advantages and disadvantages in these three methods. Depending on the needs and conditions, customers will have different options. The following article is only for comparing good and bad points between these three methods.
VPS VPS, Cloud VPS and Cloud Server?
VPS is the main combination of shared hosting and dedicated hosting. While you are sharing the server with the visitors, you still have a portion of the server resources dedicated to your needs. The rest of the server is shared according to the needs of the site. VPS is essentially a small dedicated server. A VPS can be useful for sites that have large shared servers, but don’t have a separate operating system installed.
VPS is a server that is very familiar to web developers, web designers, webmasters, game developers, programmers
Cloud VPS can be understood as Share Web Hosting. Usually, anyone who has ever used Share Web Hosting understands basically about Cloud VPS. Cloud VPS is jointly used on a server. This server is called a virtual server. Cloud VPS can share and use together from one server but has very low resource limits.
Cloud Server is a virtual server, developed on a cloud computing platform. Basically, Cloud Server and Cloud VPS have many similarities.
At work, Cloud server brings a lot of benefits to users
Should we choose VPS, Cloud VPS or Cloud Server?
|Characteristics||VPS||Cloud VPS||Cloud server|
|Stabilization||VPS only works on 1 server. When the server crashes, all the clients are affected.||Cloud VPS still depends on the server, so the operation process is sometimes not stable. It is possible to hang up when traffic suddenly surges during peak hours. If there are problems, the clients will automatically switch to another server in the same system.||Cloud Server works very independently. Because of the nature of combining multiple physical server clusters together, when a problem occurs, host services will be relocated to another cluster of physical servers.|
|Management capabilities||Customers only have admin accounts and can access them remotely. Customers will have to send requests to the service provider when they want to start or install the tricks on them. The management and administration of customers will have certain limitations.||Cloud VPS allows customers to install some simple tricks. The use is more comfortable and proactive.||With cloud computing technology, you can manage your Cloud Server anywhere, just have the Internet. Not only that, all administrative operations are simplified, do not require administrators have extensive knowledge of IT.|
|Ability of extension||No scalability. If you want to expand, you must buy more. Upgrading or transferring servers can cost you a lot of time and money.||Cloud VPS offers the option to use on a monthly basis, suitable to adjust according to customer needs. So you only need to pay for the part of the service you used.||Unlimited scalability. You just need to press the button to have a new storage space with unlimited capacity. How much you use, you pay that money.|
|Upgrade Ability||The ability to upgrade depends on the resources of the server. In the case of an upgrade where the server runs out of resources, the upgrade will also be automatically stopped. Expensive upgrade costs.||Cloud VPS can be upgraded comfortably. If you are upgrading, but the server runs out of resources, the upgrade process will automatically switch to another server with full resources. However, the resources are limited because of the amount of RAM separately. The cost is quite expensive if you want to upgrade.||Due to the large amount of resources, the traffic is always guaranteed and easy to upgrade when required.|
|Security level||Because of the shared server, when there is any service that shares non-secure resources, there is a risk of affecting other stakeholders on the system.||Data of customers are stored independently so Cloud VPS has higher security.||Because of the clear separation of storage space, if other services on the same cloud server are infected with malicious code or hacked, your cloud server will not be affected.|
As you can see, Cloud Server compared to VPS or Cloud VPS has many outstanding advantages. Just only a disadvantage about its cost. However, if you refer to the current cost of cloud server services, you will realize that the cost is not really much more expensive than the other two services and the real benefits. Your choice depends on you!
