Virtual Private Server vs Dedicated Server

Virtual Private Server vs Dedicated Server

In our last posting on dedicated virtual server hosting, we talked about the differences between dynamic dedicated servers and virtual private servers. We covered everything from the difference in price points between VPS hosting solutions and dedicated server solutions, the scalability of VDS VPS hosting compared to the scalability of dedicated web hosting and the Cloud as seen from VPS vs. dedicated servers. In today’s posting we want to continue talking about this subject however we want to zone in on the benefits of virtualization over straight dedicated server hosting.

Virtual Dedicated Server Web Hosting

First things first, here at Solar VPS, we use Xen virtualization technology for all our server virtualization needs. While there are different forms of virtualization – VDS VMWare, VPS OpenVZ, KVM and Xen – Solar VPS utilizes Xen for our dedicated virtual server tech because our clients love Xen the most. We have nothing against VDS VMWare, VPS OpenVZ or KVM. They are all excellent virtualization solutions however for us and for our clients, Solar VPS provides Xen virtualization services. Secondly, as a virtual dedicated host, we are proud to offer the web hosting world with a multitude of virtual operating systems. Supplying both virtual Linux and virtual Windows operating systems, Solar VPS allows clients who versed in the major Linux and Windows OS’s to comfortably operate their virtual dedicated servers. Thirdly, we have to mention scalability. The main benefit of virtual private server vs. dedicated server solutions is scalability. Scalability is the ability of both the consumer and the VPS provider to utilize/provide resources which are needed at the moment. As a consumer, virtual dedicated server hosting means you only pay for what you use and need. If you need more resources, you pay for more resources and your virtual server provider supplies those resources. Scalability is instant provisioning to meet the consumers virtual dedicated server needs. We don’t have to say it but dynamic dedicated server web hosting does not offer the level of scalability that virtual server web hosting does. With this said, all of the aforementioned information equates to one major selling point: price. Virtual server hosting is cheaper and more cost effective than dedicated server web hosting. You can cut it anyway you want, virtual private server vs. dedicated server hosting comes down to price. VPS hosting is more cost friendly than its dedicated server counterpart.
