Choosing VPS vs. dedicated: different methods for your global reach.

Choosing VPS vs. dedicated: different methods for your global reach.

Dedicated servers and virtual private servers (VPSs) are two common hosting options for those companies too large or complex for shared hosting. Hosting clients typically wonder about the limitations of a VPS and whether it is worth the reduced cost to choose server virtualization over a dedicated server.

The Truth About the Pay-As-You-Use Model

 

Everywhere, cloud hosting providers are promoting their cloud solutions, using phrases like “the Cloud provides a cost-effective option for hosting your data” but how true is this statement? The main reason companies move to the Cloud is the belief that the switch will save them more money than if they were to go with another solution, such as dedicated hosting or even virtual private server (VPS) hosting. It is important to note, however, that with some cloud hosting plans offered by certain, less-reputable vendors, there’s a catch.

Consider your utility bills—water, electricity, trash and so on. These bills are pretty consistent and stable throughout the year, and you’re only required to pay for what you use. Billing for a cloud hosting solution is very similar: you pay for the data and resources that you use and nothing more.

But what happens if your website suddenly sees a significant increase in traffic due to some sort of viral phenomenon or current event? Usage spikes are hardly predicable and can cost your company a great deal of money.

It is the responsibility of the client to handle resources consumed during times of increased usage, or handling the set up of automatic software tools that take care of the issue. When clients pay little attention to the consumed data or are irresponsible in maintaining the framework, costs begin to skyrocket.

So, as with electricity and water consumption, users need to responsible in keeping costs down. Make sure that your usage is justified, so that you only pay for what is actually needed.

At Atlantic.Net, our comprehensive cloud solutions begin at just $0.007 per hour, so you don’t need to worry excessively about usage—let us take care of that for you. To try it out for yourself, contact us today.

What’s the Difference between VPS and Dedicated Servers?

The most notable difference between VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated servers is that with VPS hosting, you are sharing the physical resources (CPU, RAM, etc.), while enjoying the freedom of a private server.  On the other hand, with a dedicated server, no sharing is required because you have the server all to yourself.
