Compare Cloud Servers
Cloud servers offer significantly higher performance & scalability compared to typical virtual private servers, while maintaining a similar price level.
Typical virtual private servers also don’t offer all the cloud value-added features such as replicated reliable server snapshots and CPU allocation bursts.
A cloud server is a virtual dedicated server instance powered by Citrix XenServer, managed using OpenStack and run on very powerful & redundant hardware. The cloud server instances offer truly dedicated, isolated and protected resources which are not available with virtual private servers. You generally get a dedicated memory allocation with virtual private servers however you have no guarantee on CPU, Disk & Network I/O allocations.
The majority of VPS providers also offer a limited amount of servers with small resources, typically from 256MB of RAM up to 1-2GB in most cases, and 4GB in very rare cases, where as with cloud servers, you have the ability to go up to 64GB of RAM for a single instance, with all the resources fully dedicated to your server and not shared with any other tenants.
Cloud servers offer you a large amount of additional features as well such as snapshots and the ability for your CPU allocation to burst when there are free CPU cycles on the host machine or when it is heavily underutilized. So often you end up with far more CPU allocation than what you are paying for as the host servers powering cloud servers are never oversold, unlike the VPS platforms which are typically oversold and crash often due to lack of resources.
|Cloud Servers||Typical Virtual Private Server|
|You can create one, five or a hundred cloud instances instantly using our control panel or programmatically using our OpenStack Compute API.||You must purchase each server individually and go through the order process for every server created, without any APIs for automation.|
|You don’t need to worry about finding the correct plan, regardless of what scale you need because of our large range of instance types, from a small test server to a server with large memory and storage.||Most of the time, VPS providers only provide you with a limited set of plans and rarely ever go into offering 4GB of memory. This means that you cannot deal with 1 single provider for all your needs.|
|Near Instant Scaling|
|You can instantly resize your servers either using our management console or using our OpenStack Compute API, the resize is automatically handled by our platform. The system will automatically store a copy of your instance for up to 24 hours if you need to revert the resize at anytime.||VPS providers rarely offer resizing of your service and it tends to be an unsupported option. If they do, they do not have any fail-safe mechanisms in place to handle any possible resizing failures which means that server resizing are an extremely dangerous process.|
|Hourly Billing & Utility Bandwidth|
|With utility billing, you are only charged for each second of computing power that you have used. If you start a server for 15 minutes every month, then you will be charged for that only, nothing more. You will also be charged only for the bandwidth you use each month, nothing more.||In general, VPS companies always charged you per month in advance for your servers, regardless of how much resources you use throughout the month. Also, the large numbers of bundled bandwidth is typically oversold & you’ll often find your server disabled if you come close to it.|
|Snapshots & Cloning|
|You can take a snapshot of your server at anytime (even while it’s running) and it will be compressed and stored on our replicated backup storage. You can then create a server from that snapshot instantly.||VPS providers don’t usually offer backups. If they offer any type of backups, it’s usually a full image of the server and you cannot decide when it's taken or use it to launch a new server.|
