Difference Between VPS Cloud and VPS SSD

Few posts ago, we discussed, how with SSD VPS Hosting, you could improve website speed. Today we will go one step ahead and discuss the difference between VPS Cloud and VPS SSD.

However, before moving ahead, you should know what VPS SSD is?


VPS SSD is a Virtual Private Server supported by a Solid State Drive (SSD). The hosting provider utilizes a physical SSD disk on its physical server in this hosting type. The main advantage of an SSD is that it gives better website speed and performance at lesser power drainage than HDD.

VPS Cloud:

As the name defines, your server is set up across a cloud. The hosting provider combines the scalability of the cloud with VPS to form the VPS cloud. The significant benefit of utilizing the cloud with VPS is that the load is shared between several servers, which guarantees enhanced performance and better website speed.

Pros of VPS Cloud and VPS SSD

VPS cloud is suited for people who look for a cheaper option or want to make configurations as per their choice, but if you are looking for a hosting that gives faster speed, then VPS SSD is perfect.
