At the present age, information technology is developing very quickly. That means that the Internet has also grown in proportion to the growth of information technology. Thus, obviously, internet-related services are focused on ensuring security and safety. In particular, Cloud Server and VPS are typical examples. In fact, VPS is a virtual server. And Cloud Server is a server but it is provided with a virtual server similar to VPS. These two are basically two different things. But they all have virtual servers.

Some information about Cloud server and VPS

Cloud server

It is possible that cloud server provides a virtual private server like VPS but is deployed and developed on the basis of cloud computing technology, so cloud server inherits the outstanding advantages of cloud computing technology that will not be obtained when using regular VPS.

VPS

Another kind, VPS (also named Virtual Private Server) is a type of virtual server created by dividing a physical server into many different servers with the same function as a private server. On a VPS there can be multiple Share Hosts (many different websites run at the same time).

Compare Cloud Server and VPS

Cloud Server stores data focused on cloud storage resource management technology, VPS runs on physical server. This shows that the flexibility in upgrading process, as well as data security and maintenance of the cloud server,  is more optimal than VPS.

Because of the connection by cloud computing technology and linking multiple physical servers; when a physical server goes down, the cloud server will avoid downtime. VPSes use the same server, so it is completely dependent on the configuration of that server; VPS is very passive in upgrading and maintaining the system. Besides,  Cloud server is very flexible in upgrading servers.

Infrastructure

When setting up VPS, a dedicated server will be divided into different parts All these server parts are more virtualized. Each such server part can operate as a dedicated server.

With Cloud Server, customers will rent a part of the network created by many devices connected to each other. Its advantage is that customers can always enhance their resources at will and that process can be completed with just a few clicks.

Their availability

For VPS, having a problem with a part or a device can result in the VPS server being inaccessible until the repair process is completed.

As for Cloud Server, whenever a device fails, the system will automatically select an alternative device. From there, customers can minimize the impact of the server which is inaccessible.

Resource allocation

In the cloud server environment, a customer is completely separate from all other customers. Customers will receive all the resources specified in the contract. Another, each server’s data is completely separate from each other. That shows that Cloud Server will be more secure than VPS.

For VPS, each customer will receive a virtual environment with allocated memory and with a certain amount of bandwidth. However, the CPU and memory of the parent server will be divided equally among different VPS layers.

Overall, VPS will be a more economical option than cloud server. But you will have more restrictions when using it. Cloud server has great advantages in safety and security. Besides, Cloud server is very flexible in upgrading servers. Choosing to use VPS or Cloud server depends on your financial condition and using purpose.
