Understanding the mystery of Virtual Private server (VPS Hosting)
So what is a virtual private server?
A VPS simply put is, a server that runs inside another server, it is more than a shared server and less than a dedicated server, the main goal of a virtual server is to provide a individual platform in a cheaper cost by segmenting the resource into few peoples.
A VPS does not share applications or services with other private servers, nor do they share the same file system. Private Servers are invisible to each other and do not share processes. Every VPS server will get an individual platform with specified facilities of RAM, Bandwidth, Dedicated IP, dedicated hard drive space etc.
What do you get in VPS server?
Root access to individual private servers: This allows you to run your own applications and fully manage your private server as you would on a dedicated server. So the main advantage for VPS for user that they can install anything on the server as per their requirement with having full permission.
Enhanced Security: Private servers do not share disk space, TCP/IP stacks or processes so your data will be more secure and protected.
Why do you need it?
As per my point of view user needs their own permission to install applications and scripts on the server but they are not will to pay for a dedicated server. If anyone required 30-40GB hard disk space with full control of server at cheaper cost than VPS server is a great solution for them. So we think bridges the gap between shared hosting and dedicated server hosting giving independence platform. So we would suggest that this is a great solution for small and medium level enterprise.
How does it Work?
A number of virtualization technologies make Virtual Private Servers possible: there are commercial companies, such as VMware, and Microsoft’s own Virtual PC, Open Source offerings such as User Mode Linux, QEMU, and more recently XEN. By using this software’s the resources can be segmented and can create a virtualized environment.
