When you compare VPS Hosting to Cloud Hosting, Cloud Servers offer all the benefits of VPS and more! They provide full control of your server software backed by dedicated hardware resources.
VPS Hosting is typically offered as a contracted service with static features (CPU, Memory, Hard Drive etc.). As with most VPS offerings, the resources you pay for are not guaranteed and often oversold.
Cloud Hosting allows you only pay for what you use, and can easily scale from 512 MB of RAM and a single processor to 46GB of RAM and multiple processors. We not only guarantee the resources you pay for are available, but you can also burst to use additional resources when they are not in use.
VPS Hosting will run your virtual server on 1 shared host server. If the host server ever needs servicing, has a hard drive error, or simply needs to reboot, then your virtual server will be down.
Cloud Hosting will run your virtual server across many host servers. If the host server ever needs servicing, has a hard drive error, or simply needs to reboot, then your virtual server will be moved to another host server providing you with zero down time.
Typically, the VPS hosting provider will run hundreds of virtual servers on this 1 host server, overselling the actual resources like CPU and Memory. In this case you may never actually get what you pay for because those resources are being used by another customer.
In the GetCloudServices Cloud, resources are guaranteed. If you pay for 1 CPU and 2GB of Memory, then you are guaranteed to have at least that much.
May VPS providers will either use home-grown servers that they have built or may even be reselling someone else's shared servers.
GetCloudServices owns, manages, monitors, and operates all of its own hardware. The Cloud is built using industry standard Dell and Cisco equipment that is configured using industry best practices.
So whether it be industry-leading software virtualization, or cost-effectiveness, our Cloud Servers are a far superior alternative to VPS servers.
