Virtual Private Servers (VPS) – What to Consider?
There is differences between virtualization technologies, which result in the way different types of VPS work. For example, if you need to use burstable memory (RAM) you should choose OpenVZ based VPS. If you need your VPS to be fully isolated from the underlying physical infrastructure, get a Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM VPS). Few more things to consider.
One virtual CPU core is equivalent to 1 physical CPU core. You can add virtual CPU cores to any VPS plan when you need processing power. On some occasions you might need to upgrade the VPS plan itself.
Some of VPS use storage on stand-alone servers, some use Storage Area Network (SAN). Choose storage type in the VPS order customization page. Chose between enterprise SSD, SAS or SATA storage.
Bandwidth or Data Transfer
It is important to understand how data transfer work. Choose a certain bandwidth commitment in Mbps or go for metered data transfer.
