What's the difference between a dedicated and cloud server?
A dedicated server is a physical server that you can buy or lease from a provider. Paying a monthly charge. When you purchase a dedicated server there is normally a waiting (set-up) time required for delivery and installation. Which can take up several weeks.
A cloud server, is a virtual server that runs on a virtualized environment. A virtualized environment consists of different enterprise servers (hardware nodes). This cluster of hardware nodes produces instances or virtual servers. For the user, it looks like a dedicated server but in reality, there are several different cloud servers running on a hardware cluster. Basically, the same as a dedicated server but the user does not know which hardware his server runs on because it is virtualized. Of course, the user does know where his data is stored and where the server runs. The user can indicate in which region and availability zone he wants to launch his server.
The difference is that with a dedicated server you have all (hardware) resources entirely for yourself on a physical server. A cloud server also has dedicated resources but on a virtualized platform with multiple hardware nodes that you share with others.
In addition to super-fast cloud servers, we also offer redundant storage solutions and advanced networking. In order to optimally organize your platform infrastructure.
