VPS(Virtual Private Servers) vs Cloud Computing

Businesses have long recognized virtual private servers as a way to cut IT costs and improve operating performance. Below is the key difference between VPS vs Cloud Computing.

What is VPS (Virtual Private Servers) ?

VPS offers high levels of privacy, security, and control by isolating applications and programs within a single virtual server dedicated solely to you. VPS, on the other hand, saves money on hardware and allows you to run multiple operating systems or sets of programs on a single server at the same time, but it doesn’t scale well.

What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing, on the other hand, is similar to purchasing a much broader ecosystem with the ability to scale up and down. In a cloud environment, you can add more resources to your servers more quickly, such as RAM, processors, or even cloned copies of your private cloud server for data backup.

Cloud computing and virtual private servers are not mutually exclusive. Your VPS can be hosted in a virtualized environment. This enables you to split a physical server into several virtual machines, each of which functions as a separate physical device for running IT resources and web applications in a flexible, cost-effective, and scalable manner.
