Traditional VPS Hosting
Traditional VMs are created on a single dedicated server (HyperV server) with local storage. Additionally, the partitioning of a VM is done in a way that each partition acts as a seperate dedicated server. Each VPS is capable to run its own OS and has own Disk, RAM, vCPU and bandwidth.
Cloud VPS Hosting
The functionality of Cloud VM is same, except each Cloud VM is hosted on a separate HyperV cluster (number of HyperVisor servers connected with the control panel). Additionally, Cloud VMs have separate SAN storage rather local storage of traditional VPS hosting. The Cloud cluster is a fully redundant, highly scalable and failover protected platform, so there's no downtime.
Let us take a quick look at some of the key differences between Cloud VPS Hosting and Traditional VPS Hosting.
|Points||Cloud VPS||Traditional VPS|
|Fault Tolerance||Every component in the cloud is redundant. If any component of single node fails, it will automatically switched to the other HyperV node immediately.||In traditional VPS hosting, your VPS is hosted in a single dedicated server. If any component of this server fails, all the VMs of this server will face downtime until the issue is fixed by the Hosting Provider.|
|Storage||Cloud Hosting uses SAN storage.||RAID 10 Enterprise Grade Nimble SAN storage|
|Load Balancing||Cloud hosting can share load of one server with other connected servers.||Since VPS is hosted in single server, it can not provide the load balancing feature.|
