Cloud servers utilize multiple servers connected together in a cluster which is backed by SAN storage. Customers utilizing a cloud platform will benefit from the multiple servers because they will receive unlimited storage, maximum bandwidth, managed load balancing and no ties to a specific piece of hardware.

Cloud vs VPS

by urolimesmm In reply to Cloud VS VPS

Virtual Private Server (VPS) is the concept in which a physical server exists and it is divided into various virtual servers. Each virtual server act as an independent server whereas in the cloud instead of a single physical server, there exists multiple physical servers.
VPS tend to be less reliable because if the physical server fails then all the VPS using that server will also fail and compared to the cloud, VPS is less secure.
Cloud, on the other hand, is flexible, more reliable. Since the cloud uses multiple servers, more resources are available for use.
