    Cloud Vs. VPS Hosting Performance

    In terms of Scalability, Availability and Pricing Cloud is always ahead of virtual private servers. However, I would like to know that, how do you measure the performance of cloud versus vps hosting? What you have to say about the performance of cloud vs. vps?

    If a customer requires additional server resources, the customer can be switched in moments to another server having sufficient amount of server resources, where the customer can max out the complete server if required. On cloud, a customer is never limited on resources and any issue can be resolved with greater flexibility of the solution.

    The most common issue with vps is that it doesn't have any centralized storage, due to which is can be very incalculable in terms of performance, because you really don't have any idea with whom you are sharing a server.

      In addition to that, if another customer decides to utilize all of the CPU on that server, there is no way to switch you to another server without taking your whole website down and moving your over a new server. With cloud servers, you can easily make decisions and move your website to another server without effecting your websites uptime.

        SeanyG is right on whenever you want to move your website to another server cloud hosting will be way much better than VPS. Thanks for adding that info.

          Performance can be judged based on 2 basic criterion, namely CPU resource and RAM. VPS offers guaranteed RAM and created VPSs equally share the CPU resources of the physical server. Whereas, Cloud server is setup on a High Availability cluster and is known for its Scalability, Availability and Reliability. Cloud server provides guaranteed CPU as well as RAM, unlike VPS, which offers only guaranteed RAM. Keeping individual resource scalability feature in mind Cloud Server wins hands down!! :smile:

            Don't forget storage when you're talking about performance. This is often underestimated. It's definitely not only CPU and RAM anymore. Our cloud servers are running on an enterprise storage platform which is often faster than the hard disks in most dedicated servers are capable of. This includes eNlight but also VMware and HyperV based cloud services.

            In the end the difference between VPS and cloud hosting services is the level of redundancy. As said centralized storage along with some other technologies are making sure the servers hosted with us don't suffer from hardware failure. A normal VPS in most situations doesn't offer that level of redundancy. That doesn't mean a VPS has no redundancy though. These nodes are still equipped with redundant components.

              Cloud Vs. VPS Hosting Performance

              Cloud Computing is very impacting small business models of IT organizations already established. In the short term will likely see the implementations of solutions in Cloud complementing the existing solutions in the traditional model.

                I have experienced the opposite when my VM was down for almost 4 hours. Support said that it was because there was some issue on the main node server of the eNlight.

                That was it and anything I was left with!
                Im very disappointed with such false statements.

                  Cloud computing has better performance than VPS. Cloud computing provisions convenient, on-demand network access to a pool of computing resources, such as, servers, storage space, etc, that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. Cloud computing is much more advanced than VPS hosting and is based robust infrastructure and fault-tolerant design. As data is stored on multiple servers at multiple locations, no problem arises due to a serverís failure. There is always a server available to carry on your work in case of failure of the original server. Any amount of data can be stored on cloud. There is ample bandwidth, almost infinite computing power, high reliability, extremely high uptime, option to scale up infinitely in the case of more traffic, broad network access, resource pooling, and enhanced 24 by 7 security. Cloud computing is an extremely effective and efficient computing process. Cloud model promotes availability and rapid elasticity. Cloud computing allows you to set up or upgrade a server very quickly and automatically. Cloud computing is industry-favorite, as its dynamic solutions offer users the convenience of on-demand, fully scalable computing and data storage services at lower costs yet with very high performance.

                    With cloud hosting, performance can constantly be maximized depending on usage. This is due to having multiple servers available at all times to address the need for more speed. Cloud hosting is also helpful when one server fails; the file and the functionality can be shifted automatically without downtime or significant delay.

                    In VPS hosting, performance is guaranteed with respect to having many machines that are running concurrently. It is important to consider that VPS hosting servers are physical machines and failure of hosting machines will result in outages for the entire server. However, VPS hosting can often be moved to cloud hosting in such an event and until repairs are completed.
