Difference Between VPS SSD and VPS Cloud

In this article, we’ll go over what VPS SSD and VPS Cloud are, how to choose between the two, and which is ideal for your website.


VPS SSD stands for Virtual Private Server with Solid State Drive (SSD). The hosting provider employs a physical SSD disc on their physical server in this sort of hosting. The benefit of using an SSD is that it uses less power while also increasing website speed and performance.

VPS Cloud

Your server is set up over a cloud in VPS Cloud, as the name implies. Your hosting service provider would use VPS Cloud to combine the availability of VPS with the scalability of the cloud. The benefit of using the cloud with a VPS is that your load is divided evenly among the several servers, resulting in improved performance and website speed.

Pros and Cons of VPS SSD vs VPS Cloud

Pros of VPS SSD Pros of VPS Cloud
Powered by high-capacity SSD drives.
Powered by a cloud architecture that is scalable.
Because SSDs have no moving parts, they have a reduced chance of mechanical failure.
Everything is saved in the cloud and can be accessible even if one server is down, thus there is no mechanical failure.
When compared to VPS Cloud, the server boot time is faster here.
VPS Cloud is instantaneously scalable, despite the server's relatively delayed boot time.
As the hosting provider, it comes with cPanel and is completely managed.
Unmanaged hosting is available, allowing you to adapt it to your own requirements.
Cons of VPS SSD Cons of VPS Cloud
VPS SSD is more expensive than VPS Cloud.
Although VPS Cloud is less expensive, it sacrifices booting speed and time.
Although the read speed of the VPS SSD is fast, the write speed is slower.
In comparison, the read and write speeds are slower.
Even though VPS SSD has a longer lifespan than other VPS hosting plans, it does not provide a warning when it is going to fail. As a result, if a real-time backup isn't enabled, you risk losing your data.
Add-on for cPanel is required, and very limited assistance is provided.

Which is best for your website?

When compared to the traditional/classic VPS, which used an HDD drive for the physical server, both VPS SSD and VPS Cloud are excellent. Furthermore, they each have their own set of benefits and drawbacks. If your website traffic is growing at a rapid rate, VPS Cloud is the best option; however, if you need additional performance, VPS SSD is the best option.
