Information security is one of the most important means of VPS. This hosting has several advantages over cloud hosting. In particular, all your data is stored on one server, and not distributed across several. Root access provides extensive security configuration options. But if the site undergoes a DDoS attack, it will affect the remaining VPS on the same host.

With cloud hosting, securing security can be more difficult as the data and resources are distributed across different servers and sites. Most cloud hosting providers provide root access to clients, but you need to understand that data can be physically stored in several places. But in a cloud environment, one client is completely isolated from the files of another - from this point of view, the environment is more secure.

The biggest difference between the two server environments is scale. If you’re looking to launch as quickly as possible and don’t care about scale, then a VPS server can be a great starting point. However, if you demand a flexible hosting setup and a high level of site performance and storage then it’s worth checking out a cloud hosting environment.

  • VPS hosting is normally less efficient since it allocates us a specific amount of computing resources to each client. Hence, at some point, if requirement increases then the system would not able to handle the additional flow while in Cloud hosting tackles the increase in a different way because under the environment of cloud, the website is hosted on a pool unified computing system.
  • VPS is not much Scalable as it can’t able to add more server power while in Cloud hosting it is more scalable as it can add more server power at a moment

The key difference is that instead of having a single server that's dedicated to your site (as is the case with VPS), the resources are spread out amongst a bunch of different physical machines. With cloud hosting, you have a network of potentially unlimited virtual machines.

Cloud servers have high sensitivity and can withstand high hardware loss compared to VPS
