    cloud hosting is a utility where a cloud service vendor provides a virtual machine instance that does not have fixed computing attributes. While there may be a minimum or maximum size configuration for the server, the virtual machine computing configuration can grow or shrink dynamically dependent on the resources requested by the application. The billing method for the resources is based on usage over a period of time for the CPU, RAM, HD, and Network.
    VPS or managed virtual servers are delivered as a traditional managed server although running as a virtual server, typically in a multi-tenant environment. The customer will order the server with fixed attributes and alter those attributes manually, when necessary. Vendors will typically price this service as individual components associated with the machine or as a service bundle and the resources are guaranteed to be available.

    Both VPS and cloud hosting are designed in such a way to make hosting affordable and easy to scale, but there are some obvious differences between VPS and cloud hosting.

    In VPS hosting, a single dedicated server is divided into multiple parts of smaller size using the virtualization technology. So, a VPS server host multiple sites like a shared hosting server, and also provides security and privacy like a dedicated server up to certain extent. A VPS server ensures that websites hosted on the same server do not experience conflicts and also gets enough server resources.

    Whereas, a cloud server on the other hand is a network of multiple different servers connected together and acting a giant single server. The cloud servers are located at multiple locations and your website data files are more secure as they are moved to a different server whenever a server is down and makes sure that your website faces no downtime. Also, the resources are allocated dynamically as and when the need arises depending on the website traffic.

    Cloud refers to an effective network of virtual hosting features and facilities which are hosted as well as managed by a third party. The companies have huge centers for data management. If you ever need hosting of data, you will have to buy or rent hosting service from them. Thus cloud hosting provides more security and ease of access compared to any other traditional VPS hosting services.

    Cloud hosting is an emerging technology that enables the pooling of large number of separate physical computers and servers etc. VPS is also known as virtual private server and VPS hosting services are reliable and efficient.

    There are some small differences between cloud and VPS. VPS can be served via a cluster and is commonly found on a single "beefed up" server. While cloud generally run on a cluster of servers that allow redundancy and fail over. Additionally, you will commonly find that cloud is using other form of Network Storage for its storage space, while most of the VPS use local storage.

    VPS hosting is generally less efficient since it allocates a specified amount of computing resources to each client. Hence, if the requirement increases, the system would not be able to handle the additional inflow. It will simply crash. Same would be the case if the server malfunctions.

    Cloud hosting on the other hand tackles the increase differently. Under the cloud environment, the website is hosted on a pool of unified computing resources. This simply means that if one server is reaching its optimum level, then a second server is ready to function. Similarly, if a server fails, the website will still be running as other server will continue to serve the incoming traffic.

    If you want reliability and powerful functionality, then Cloud hosting is a great choice. The recent price slashes in Cloud infrastructure from Amazon and the likes shows that the market has immense growth potential. Furthermore, it shows that cloud hosting is getting affordable too.

    VPS is made for people who are interested in hosting just a website. While it is powerful, VPS does not guarantee uptime should your website fails due to high traffic or a technical glitch.

    VPS is a virtual machine, one server divided in multiple VPS.

    The Cloud Hosting is more like a cluster, a lot of servers working like a one giant and powerful server. With a Cloud Server you can have the power of 2 or more servers but working like a one.
