Virtual Dedicated Servers (VDS) and Dedicated Server Virtual Private Servers (VPS) are usually mentioned in the same breath and in many ways are equivalent, however there are some differences. Hyper-V virtual dedicated servers offer a distinct advantage over traditional virtual private servers in that they are closer to a dedicated server. In other words they allow the client to enjoy the facilities of a completely isolated virtual machine which has the same type of memory and CPU of a dedicated server, while still being logically separated from the actual physical server.
Hyper-V is able to allow the hosting of multiple OS (operating systems). For instance the same server is able to run both Linux and Windows. This essentially means that virtualization by means of a Hyper-V virtual dedicated server is simpler to scale and more secure because of the isolation from hardware or other virtual machines. Each virtual server performs just like a stand-alone server in terms of both users and applications.
A virtual private server may also be found to be slow at times, this is generally due to the fact that many users are be present on a single web hosting. The speed of the service may also be affected by the applications and software present on the actual physical server. This is able to affect memory allocation and bandwidth. The Hyper-V virtual dedicated server has a new and more efficient design, and the monitoring services provided ensure that the application runs reliably at all times. This makes it a strong choice for both production and development environments, as disaster recovery and server consolidation are supremely efficient. In the event that anything at all goes wrong the support staff is notified immediately to rectify the problem, which is managed remotely.
Some advantages of both VPS and VDS have over dedicated servers are cost, ease of migration, backup, and offline management. Due to the nature of virtual dedicated or private servers, one can very easily migrate from a virtual private or dedicated server to a dedicated server, backup the VDS or VPS server, or even reboot it. A VPS or VDS is suitable to any organization or individual who does not require control over physical hardwareHyper-V virtual dedicated server has many advantages over Shared hosting. In the case of Hyper-V virtual dedicated server hosting, we find that a server is split into separate virtual entities. Each of these entities acts as a server independent of each other. Each Virtual dedicated server has its own unique environment with disk space, bandwidth, applications, the web server, software and other related tools. Hyper-V virtual dedicated server places the client at a great advantage, the reasons being that if any of the other virtual dedicated servers on the same physical server become corrupted, it has absolutely no affect on your server. The result of this is that your data and website are safe.
Shared hosting on the other hand provides services which are very unlike Hyper-V virtual dedicated servers. You have many different shared hosting accounts sharing the same physical server, however they also share the same applications, directories and software. This means that they are all susceptible to the same level of security and performance, and unlike VDS, this can cause problems. The service provider is offering pages for many websites, but each has its own domain name. It is a cost effective solution for a company to create a web presence, however it is not suitable for websites that receive a great deal of traffic. For websites which receive high traffic numbers it is essential to have a dedicated web server and this is where Hyper-V virtual dedicated servers have the advantage.
Because Hyper-V virtual dedicated server is like a dedicated hosting service it is able to perform many functions independently, unlike shared hosting. This also means that these functions can be performed in a cost effective and efficient manner. Users of Hyper-V virtual machines are able to install their own software as well as make use of all the additional features such as FTP and mail servers.
The advantages of VDS hosting provides stability, control, reliability, flexibility and security. So virtually all the “abilities” are covered, with very few “disabilities” for the client to concern themselves with. One of the strongest advantages is “root” level access to the virtual server. This allows the user to delete, install, or change coding or software, set permissions, create various different accounts and many other features. Again we have to reiterate that all these features are available at a considerably lower cost than they would be on a dedicated physical serverHigh end virtual dedicated server hosting providers are generally multi-homed which provides for redundancy in the event a server should go down. This includes events such as natural disasters such as floods, perhaps in the instance of a hurricane. In an instance such as this a data center at a different location will automatically kick-in meaning absolutely no downtime.
Perhaps the single largest benefit to any company making use of Hyper-V virtual dedicated servers is the cost efficiency factor. It is far more cost effective to build multiple virtual dedicated servers than it is to build physical dedicated servers. IT departments in any business are able to maintain the same performance levels, security and reliability at a far reduced cost. At the same time each virtual server is loaded with its own OS and software.
