Advantages and Disadvantages of VPS (Virtual Private Server)

Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a software technology that enables the sharing of resources into multiple virtual machines (servers). Each virtual server will have the system running independently. VPS provides full access to the root user, each VPS has a configuration that can be arranged like the physical server (dedicated server).

VPS Advantages

  • Save costs
    If we use a dedicated server of course will require a fairly expensive cost, while our needs quite simple example, only requires a web server, mail server, or for data backup only. This can be done with the VPS in saving costs for datacenter infrastructure.
  • Good Performance
    VPS has a good performance when compared with the shared-hosting, where the shared-hosting sometimes less stable when the load gets high enough (in general have a shared-hosting account that many). For those of you who have a website with traffic and the process is quite high, suitable for your VPS. VPS performance will not be disturbed by any other VPS users.
  • Flexible
    You have the freedom to choose the operating system and software you want to use.
  • Maintenance is simple
    Physical server in-maintenance by VPS hosting providers, so we just manage the virtual server is all we have.

VPS Disadvantages

  • All server hardware is used by users of the VPS, this includes the use of CPU, RAM and hard drive.
  • Must have a special ability in managing the administration server.
