What is the fundamental difference cloud hosting and VPS?

No, I know about the difference but I'm confused about the financial issue
For example, I have a VPS for a very specified in the contract monthly cost with some clear hardware capabilities and limitations, relatively speaking (for example) he can handle 100 pax/h, and in case of exceeding the just will fall or will give error 500 series
In the case of cloud hosting for blurred tariff plan I get the rubber server capabilities - but then I get quite a rubber bill for services..
What ask the question - what is the feature of cloud hosting? And that would not fly.
Or is it the next step when the project grows out of the capabilities of a VPS?

and what is the feature of cloud hosting?


As always in money.
For example, the website gives 1 € each visitor profits.
The site is visited by 100 people a day.
But I gave a TV ad and the website came 1 million people in one day.
And brought me 1 million rubles, Yes some of the money I gave to Amazon cloud.
But the website did not lie at the peak load, and worked quietly.
You don't occur to you that this is not a lemon of users went to a competitor you zakazl and lemon instead of money you will receive a bill in the lemon? This is a field for the violations and abuses and even 100% with the financial setup.... - Micheal_Murphy commented on March 19th 20 at 09:21
@Micheal_MurphyI think that the question of commercial risk.
There is a risk to advertise and the website is at this moment lying dead on any vps or vds. Visitors will see 500 in the best case and leave. Risk.
There is a risk to get a lot of money at Amazon, and it does not get any exhaust.
As always, money. Life is too risky :)

This is a field for the violations and abuses and even 100% with the financial setup....

IMHO, Amazon specon unlikely to cheat counters. Unlikely. If they are caught by the hand, it will be a scandal to the world. Yes, and they do not need it. Some other cloud providers. I don't know.
It depends on reputation. - gabe.Kutch commented on March 19th 20 at 09:24
If a competitor will order DDOS, then there is cloudflare.
In General, it's just arithmetic.
Spent so much money earned so well, or got so much. - gabe.Kutch commented on March 19th 20 at 09:27
@gabe.Kutch, and I'm not talking about the Scam Amazon, I was talking quite specifically about some of the third parties that would be acceptable as would a million visits and will eat resources of the owner for which he will be forced to pay

I think so, it is a matter of commercial risks.
There is a risk to advertise and the website is at this moment lying dead on any vps or vds. Visitors will see 500 in the best case and leave. Risk.
There is a risk to get a lot of money at Amazon, and it does not get any exhaust.


Is another story, I, as the owner of a business, are well aware how much I'm paying for advertising, and what will be from the exhaust (and visitors too) - with 90% accuracy, which is confirmed not just frustrations on a given topic and quite tangible reports and sales. - Micheal_Murphy commented on March 19th 20 at 09:30
@gabe.Kutch, well... if the dream closer to life and Margolin himself quite so real.. - Micheal_Murphy commented on March 19th 20 at 09:33

When "ragged" non-permanent load - the meaning of cloud hosting is.
The rapid growth of the company/business, when all of the resources to development and no resources for admins/iron.

Important point:
Your server should be designed for the cloud, to be able to horizontal (not just vertical) the zoom, or the meaning of the clouds is not.

The difference in the billing.

Yes physically there is no difference, only in scaling up your rate , that is, no horizontal scaling no
Well, cloud hosting may not exceed VPS - florida.Strosin commented on March 19th 20 at 09:27
@florida.Strosin, in any sense, can exceed? what? - Micheal_Murphy commented on March 19th 20 at 09:30
@Micheal_Murphy, none of the allocated resources - florida.Strosin commented on March 19th 20 at 09:33

On a VPS if the load increases strongly, it can reach the limit and to shut up on the cloud you leave on and will require a lot of power, but it can lead to large
If the administrator is not just stupid, it would limit the daily consumption. - Richie_V commented on March 19th 20 at 09:29
In fact, almost no difference.

For the cloud a little easier autoscaling, because that feature usually have a provider in the portal with a relatively simple configuration.

But before VPS with proper skill you can just as well raise a balancer in the normal dash to pull API on the event to add a new server to the group. If a VPS with hourly billing, it will save because the AWS cloud and the much more expensive - sienna76 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:32
@sienna76, interesting solution, there are some material in a less accessible form? - Micheal_Murphy commented on March 19th 20 at 09:35
@Micheal_Murphy, as an example on Digital Ocean
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/h...
well, or finished script through Terrafrom
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/h...
there is not enough feedback loop for the load - sienna76 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:38
@sienna76, thank you! - Micheal_Murphy commented on March 19th 20 at 09:41
