VPS vs. Virtual Dedicated Server?
Category: Server Usage
Can anyone tell me the difference, if there is any, between a virtual private server and a virtual dedicated server?
Virtual Private Server (VPS) is the proper wording. I don't believe there is such a thing as a virtual dedicated server- it would be the same thing as the virtual private server. The whole point of a "dedicated" server is that the processor and memory are all yours. In many server farms these days, this may amount to a "blade" or rack mount unit. VPS are basically virtual systems that share the hardware, but the OS is separated (virtually- through the OS) into units with a certain amount of memory (RAM and hard drive space). Multiple VPSs can be on the same server sharing CPU. If you're looking for further information about the VPS and Dedicated server, check out this page, or call into our sales department and they can give you a much clearer definition of our hosting systems:
