Dedicated Cloud Hosting and Virtual Private Server (VPS)
Like many other Business Owners, you have decided to migrate your Company’s data to the cloud, but are now faced with the difficult decisions surrounding Cloud Hosting and the different hosting services offered. Must you choose Virtual Private Server or Dedicated Cloud Server? Should it be a managed or unmanaged solution?
Virtual Private Server is also known as VPS, cloud server, cloud hosting server, cloud platform, cloud computing or just cloud. However, Dedicated cloud server is also known as dedicated cloud hosting, dedicated server, dedicated hosting or dedicated virtual server.
Virtual Private Cloud (VPS)
Due to the vulnerability, unreliability, and costs of traditional on-site servers and the maintenance thereof, there is a continuous strong move to Virtual Computing by migrating clients’ data to virtual machines. This virtual machine (virtual private server) is then hosted by a hosting provider. Each VPS operates independently from each other on isolated networks.
Virtual Private Servers (VPS) are very reliable hosting services with resources reserved for each virtual private server’s usage. This then results into guaranteed reliable, fast, secure, and customizable hosting. Each virtual private server runs using an independent operating system.
Virtual Private Server (VPS) - Unmanaged
With full root access that usually comes with an unmanaged VPS hosting option, you can install and customize any software that you require to optimize your hosting experience. This flexibility is especially valuable when clients need to install a custom OS. Clients are however responsible for the security and maintenance of their own VPS.
In your organisation, you might have a great team of experts who could manage, operate, and control the daily upkeep of your Virtual Private Server (VPS). The only responsibility channeled to your VPS Provider, is to ensure that your server is connected with a guaranteed uptime of 99.95% and a stable network connection.
