What is the difference between a VPS and a VM?
Virtual Private Server - A VPS is a virtual server that appears to be a single dedicated server, however instead of the one server instance on a single piece of hardware, a VPS is many "virtual servers", sharing the same resources.
Because of the shared use of resources VPS can be very cost effective, however the trade off is stability and control. Accounts on the same hardware could contend for resources if they were both under load simultaneously, similar to Shared Hosting.
This means that while it might appear to be a cost effective platform for your sites, there is still risk of hardware failure and downtime. VPS are good for fairly simple websites, however unsuitable for heavy load applications.
Ideal for: Cost effective for websites that aren't business critical e.g. Your business blog.
Virtual Machines - Virtual Machines (sometimes called a Cloud Server or Virtual Dedicated Server) are virtually indistinguishable from a Dedicated Server for the user. This type of virtualisation is the next evolution in server technology. Using Hypervisor software to allow multiple operating systems to share hardware configured in clusters, creating isolated accounts with effective dedicated resources.
VM's offer the flexibility of VPS but with controlled resources making them much more stable and powerful. Where VPS runs many user accounts on a single server, all sharing the Host Operating System's resources, VM's run on large multiprocessor and cluster installations, with vast resources available providing reliability that can exceed dedicated hardware.
Ideal For: Most Business and E-commerce websites.
