Cloud servers are built for high availability and scalability. Providing separation between storage and compute, they allow servers to float between physical hardware locations, enabling them to be used to scale resources or maintain availability if there is a failure elsewhere in the network. This makes them ideal for clients hosting mission-critical websites or applications.
HostFaddy’s Hyperslice cloud servers are the ideal solution for when uptime, performance, scalability and support are critical for your enterprise.
VPS are hosted on individual physical servers with local storage that are not clustered, while the individual servers have a very high level of redundancy (dual PSU, ECC memory, RAID disks, dual network ports), if the server does fail then the VPS will go offline.
Cloud Servers are hosted in a clustered environment where storage is decentralised, physical servers act as compute only and not storage, as a result if a single, or even multiple physical servers fail there are always other physical servers within the cluster that can take over, as a result cloud servers are considered a high availability platform. The higher cost of cloud server comes from the fact that additional capacity needs to be maintained through more psychical servers so that if there is failure there is enough available capacity for the remaining servers to take over without any loss of performance.
In additional to high availability our cloud server platform is designed for enterprise class applications and as result we maintain a much Lower contention ratio per physical server meaning greater CPU and IO performance.
