Well, I have found many of us asking this question either to themselves or to their colleagues that how Cloud Server Hosting is different from Virtual Server Hosting. Let me take this call!!

VPS Hosting
Virtual Server hosting is a technique of partitioning a physical server into multiple servers such that each has the appearance and capabilities of running on its own dedicated server. Each VPS can run its own operating system, and each server can be individualistically booted /rebooted. On the other hand, Cloud Server Hosting is a technique in which robustly scalable and often virtualized resources are delivered as a service over the Internet.
Pros of VPS Hosting
  • Less expensive than cloud servers
  • No sharing occurs between VPS clients on the shared server
  • Can be re-booted independently
Cons of VPS Hosting
  • If physical server fails, all VPS’s on that server fails. Apart from this, VPS are not scalable. Once VPS capacity is reached, you have to look for either other options or have to buy more space, which may take quite some time, and can cause downtime.
  • Computing resources are shared between all the clients (CPU, RAM, and memory), hence performance might get affected. Moreover, you can use only one operating system by each partitioned layer

Cloud Server Hosting
A cloud server utilizes numerous servers connected together in a cluster which is backed by SAN storage.
Pros of Cloud Servers
It offers unlimited storage, managed load balancing, maximum bandwidth, and no limitation to a specific piece of hardware.
  • Highly scalable, which means you can add more server power in no time
  • High availability, if one of the server fails, cloud servers are migrated to other server, with no downtime
  • Zero worries about lagging RAM or CPU power, and security
  • Each client on the cloud can choose their desired operating system.
  • Clients get unlimited storage space as it is based on SAN storage
Cons of Cloud Server
  • A little more expensive than VPS Hosting

That can be a very detailed and long discussion, but I would like to throw light on some pointers, which are given below:

Server Setup- A virtual private server is a single physical server, split up between limited number of users whereas a private cloud uses distributed resources across multiple physical servers.
Location- A virtual private server is generally hosted at an off-site, third-party web server provider while a private cloud is situated on site or at a data center you own.
Scalability- Cloud control panels are built with quick provisioning and deployment in mind. Comparatively, A VPS requires manual upgrade for the requirement of resources.
