The Cloud Platform is Liquid Web’s proprietary cloud computing solution based on KVM, Linux’s Kernel-based Virtual Machine. It offers scalable, virtualized resources as a service, purchased on a utility basis.
By definition, cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer. While a local machine can be used to access the cloud, the intent is that the environment is remote thus removing the need for local resources for storage, management, and processing of data.
Next, we want to understand what a virtual private server is and how it works. The VPS is a private, dedicated hosting environment that is on a host, parent server or a cluster of servers through the use of virtualization. We implement a hypervisor or virtual machine manager (computer software, firmware, or hardware that creates and runs virtual machines) to run virtual machines on a host/parent server. Each virtual machine is called a guest instance or child instance, relating a guest to a host and a child to a parent.
Essentially, the VPS is like a physical server that exists as a piece of software running on a host/parent server.
The hypervisor presents to the guest operating systems a virtual operating platform and manages the execution of the guest operating systems. Guest instances that share common operating systems may also share virtualized hardware resources but remain independent of each other.
The Cloud Platform is Liquid Web’s proprietary cloud computing solution based on KVM, Linux’s Kernel-based Virtual Machine. It offers scalable, virtualized resources as a service, purchased on a utility basis. In other words, you pay for what you use. You get dynamic provisioning in a scalable, virtual environment. Resources needed for most projects are available in minutes, giving near-instant access on a new server. Best of all: you can do this without the need of migrating your data or changing your server settings.
The main difference between a VPS and cloud VPS is a true cloud VPS will have higher redundancy and availability. Our cloud VPS replicates your data in real-time to another server in the cloud. If the server your data is located on has problems due to hardware issues, your website will continue operating normally through automatic failover.
