It’s really a terminology thing in our eyes!
Our Cloud Servers and Virtual Servers are exactly the same. They are Virtual Machines deployed into our high availability node cluster.
A lot of Virtual Server Providers tend to take one Dedicated Server, and then virtualise on the machine. We do the same – however with one big difference. We use many servers to virtualise, load balancing and ensuring that all of the Virtual Servers (or Cloud Servers) have plenty of resources shared amongst them to perform.
In our environment, if there is a network issue or hardware failure, the Virtual Machines running on the node will automatically be migrated in real-time to a server with sufficient resources seconds after the issue occurs.
Storage is another critical difference in our cloud environment. Your Virtual Server has the data replicated 3 times across multiple drives in multiple servers.
Overall we operate many more servers than we need in order to minimise any issues in case of multiple node failure.
