Are VPS and VPC i.e. Virtual Private cloud means same? Do they come with same pricing and same set of features?
I thought of throwing some light on the above so people will get more information on this topic.
Let’s first look at Virtual Private Server, also called as VPS. A VPS is the result of splitting one powerful physical server into many virtual servers. The benefits extended by this arrangement include easier management, dynamic resource tuning, and higher reliability than traditional dedicated servers. Actually VPS are also physical servers on bigger host server. One physical server includes number of small VPS. Data stored on these VPS servers is separate from other VPS. We can reboot or restart or terminate one VPS without affecting other VPS or main physical server. If Physical server fails then all VPS on the same server also fail. VPS does not offer high availability. If one VPS is affected by attack like DDOS then all other VPS will also get impact. VPS always share computing resources from physical server and other VPS. Hence RAM, bandwidth and CPU performance can be affected if another VPS on the shared server is demanding a higher load. We need to use only one Operation system by one VPS. There are always limitations like storage which depends on the main physical server which is not scalable.
Now we will look at the Cloud servers. Do this really have cutting edge over VPS? We also call it as Cloud Server or Virtual Private Cloud.
The Cloud Server represents the next evolution in data hosting. The cloud boasts self-healing capabilities, so that if a physical server fails, your virtual cloud moves to a spare. This ensures your server is always accessible. Once can instantly scale Cloud instance up or down to handle periods of increased load. Cloud server further enhances disk performance with Solid State Disk (SSD) accelerated storage. We have more advantages with Virtual Private Cloud as listed below :
- Auto Scaling - As I mentioned above we can scale our server space or any resource like RAM in a moment
- High Availability – If a physical server fails, your virtual cloud moves to a spare. This ensures your server is always accessible
- Resources – No effect of other servers on the cloud like VPS. You will not face any RAM lagging or CPU utilization being impacted
- Operating System – Client can choose operating system as per there will
- Data Space – Cloud works on SAN storage so there is no limit for data storage
- Uptime – We can ensure 100% uptime for our services with cloud storage
- Cloud server have advantage over VPS, if you want something more and you are looking for better service uptime scalability and reliability to stay ahead in competition then Cloud is the Answer. Selecting right Service and hosting is an important decision for any business and if you want to make you presence in IT and IT Infrastructure so there is no option other than Cloud.
What is Cloud computing?
What about you? Are you using a cloud?
What type of cloud will be appropriate for your website requirements?
These questions need to be answered before deciding on the cloud hosting type that you wish to have for your website. Let me provide you with a basic description of cloud computing and its types to help you select the one that is suitable to your website requirements.
Cloud computing deployment models
Public Cloud: is a type of cloud hosting in which the cloud services are delivered over a network which is open for public usage. This model is a true representation of cloud hosting; in this the service provider renders services and infrastructure to various clients. The customers do not have any distinguishability and control over the location of the infrastructure. From the technical viewpoint, there may be slight or no difference between private and public clouds’ structural design except in the level of security offered for various services given to the public cloud subscribers by the cloud hosting providers.
Resources that are non-critical like development and test workloads can be housed in the public cloud that belongs to a third-party provider. While the workloads that are critical or sensitive must be housed internally. Consider an e-commerce website, which is hosted on a private cloud that gives security and scalability, since security is not a prime concern for their brochure site it is hosted on a public cloud which is more economical as compared to a private cloud. Businesses that have more focus on security and demand for their unique presence can implement hybrid cloud as an effective business strategy. When facing demand spikes the additional resources that are required by a particular application can be accessed from the public cloud. This is termed as cloud bursting and is available with the hybrid cloud.
Organisations can use the hybrid cloud model for processing big data. On a private cloud, it can retain sales, business and various data and can initiate analytical queries over the public cloud as the public cloud is effective to meet the demand spikes. Hybrid cloud hosting is enabled with features like scalability, flexibility and security. If one is ready to overlook a few challenges like application program interface incompatibility, network connectivity issues and capital expenditures, then the hybrid cloud would be an appropriate option.
