  • Cloud computing vs VPS

    I am bit confusion regarding the basic diffrence Cloud Computing and VPS , I've been asking for the opinion to several users working with Cloud computing and VPS, and I thought the forum could give me more opinions and viewpoints. I would like to know your opinion about it in a matter of time availability, ease and time scaling, etc.

    What you can think of?

    The "cloud" is just a distributed virtual server. The real cloud computing at enterprise level, the advantage it has is that, the storage can be replicated in data centers closer to the offices of the company, with that you get a great improvement in access times to data.
    The problem is usually guided most of the "publicity" of the VPS of companies that sell "small pieces" of "small servers",the time scale is exactly the same in one than another, real time.

      Re:

      As per me If it was a choice between cloud and vps I would go cloud every time. A cloud is a pool of resources that allows your server to scale up and down whenever you wish. It also offers the redundancy and reliability with high-availability hosting that virtualization does not offer.

        The Basic difference of cloud computing is the general cloud concept is of a system that is highly scalable and not dependent on one physical server, so it's redundant from hardware failure. Where as the Virtual Private Sserver will be a virtualised 'slice' of a physical server. It will act much like it was its own server, with allocated RAM, Disk and CPU. However if that physical server fails, then all the virtual servers on it will be offline until it's repaired. Where as in the cloud hosting sites, which is different as you don't get your private server and operating system - just the ability to host sites on a redundant scalable platform.

          VPS hosts your website on a virtual server that is partitioned to provide resources to every website. Whereas cloud computing refers to hosting your website on a cluster of server. Cloud computing is a highly scalable system that gives you access to a wide range of resources. Moreover you only have to pay for the resources that you actually use. Therefore cloud computing is affordable in comparison with VPS.

            Yes, Cloud hosting is gripping webhosting industry tightly. it's based on high end technology and are most robust and scalable. Cloud servers seems to be cheaper compared to virtual hosting.
            Go with Cloud if you want better hosting environment.

              Nice sharing. The best advantages of cloud hosting is it scalability & that you pay as you use.

                Cloud hosting is a web hosting service delivered from a group of connected servers. The term cloud hosting (also called clustered hosting) is not precisely defined yet. In general, however, a hosting service can be considered cloud hosting when it is delivered from a fully redundant, multi-server system, in which the resources are dynamically scalable and often visualized
                Here are the advantages:
                1. You pay for only the resources you need.
                2. It provides good scalability. You can easily increase or decrease resources without moving sites to other servers.
                3. Servers can be deployed instantly.
                4. It provides better uptime than other types of web hosting.
                5. Traffic spikes aren't a problem; the cloud can handle them.
                6. If the servers are in different datacenters, datacenter problems can be less of a concern.
                7. Different technologies can be used together that can't be used together without cloud hosting. For example, .php and .asp files can work on the same site, even in the same folder, drawing on technologies within the cloud.
                8. You don't need to install hardware or software. Instead, you connect with a cloud that has the hardware or software you need.

                  Maintenance cloud computing applications are easier to maintain, since they don't have to be installed on each user's computer. They are easier to support and to improve since the changes reach the clients instantly.

                    Cloud computing can be better described as a service where virtualization technology is part of a physical infrastructure. Virtual servers are computers that run inside of other computers. There are two common use-cases for virtual servers personal computing and business computing.

                    Personal Computing
                    If you need to run multiple operating systems (OSs), it's often convenient to choose one primary OS, and have your alternative OSs run inside of the primary one.

                    Business Computing
                    If you need separate database, web, file, and Jabber servers. Instead of dedicating an entire computer to each of those services, you can set-up one physical server, and configure it to run multiple computers inside of it. Each of those computers that runs inside of the physical server is called a "virtual server" or "virtual machine". Creating this type of virtual environment has all sorts of benefits, including being very cost-effective, making server deployment and management much easier in large computing environments, etc.

                    Cloud computing refers to a cluster/farm/etc of servers on which virtual servers run.
                    These clouds are usually massive, and allow users to start and stop virtual servers on the fly. This can be quite convenient when additional computing power is needed sporadically.

                      Cloud hosting is more of on-demand scalability and flexibility. You can add more "resources" to your cloud to adapt to your business needs without the need for a full dedicated server, while easily get rid of it when it's not needed. You have full control and only need one point of access even if there are many cloud servers in your account.Yep. It's all virtual for both.

                      And if you go with the VPS its more like the traditional hosting with a physical server such as dedicated hosting. if you need more servers you have to get another one, configure and deploy. this takes time.

                      In cloud hosting, the concept is for you not to worry about where and when to get more servers. it's there. it's on-demand. the infrastructure is already laid out by the hosting company. if you need more servers to meet the growing demands of your business you just add more with a few mouse clicks. within a few minutes you can have more servers to power your website. so less worying of your servers, more time to focus on the business.

                      The major difference between VPS and cloud hosting it the managed it support that comes in as a bundled package along with cloud hosting. We have used cloud hosting with a 2 different vendors . Novellaspect and RTDS. We also had a VPS earlier but managing it was a huge problem . Cloud currently is a buzzword not only for SMBs but major IT comanies are migrating to cloud to save their huge infrastructure cost.

                        Cloud computing is a general term for anything that involves delivering hosted services over the Internet. These services are broadly divided into three categories: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). The name cloud computing was inspired by the cloud symbol that's often used to represent the Internet in flowcharts and diagrams.

                          I have had a look at the Cloud servers and the VPS servers. I do not see any similarity between them. Cloud uses a cluster of servers and VPS uses a single server. The working of both the products is completely different. It's just that both of these offer root or admin access to the server.

                            I would prefer cloud hosting. It is good for dynamic and interactive websites.

                              What is Cloud Computing?

                              When someone asks you what cloud computing or computing in the cloud is, it may seem difficult at first to explain it. First of all, everyone who shops on Amazon or searches on Google or posts on Facebook is using the cloud. These consumer applications are simple examples.
