Fonctionnement serveur VPS

But how exactly does a VPS server work? And how is it different from a dedicated server or shared hosting? This article aims to demystify the concept of VPS, explaining how it works;

What is a VPS server ?

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a hosting solution that combines the advantages of a dedicated server with those of shared hosting. To understand how it works, it is essential to know that a VPS runs on a physical machine, also called "dedicated server", which is partitioned into several independent virtual servers. Thanks to virtualization technology, each VPS server acts as an independent server with its own resources and operating system.

The advantages of the VPS server

Isolation and dedicated resources

Each VPS is isolated from the others and has its own CPU, RAM, and disk resources, which ensures that the activities of one VPS do not affect others. Unlike shared hosting, where resources are shared among all users, a VPS provides more stable and predictable performance.

Flexibility and control

VPS users have complete administrative control over their hosted environment, allowing the installation of specific software and the management of configuration settings. This freedom is similar to that of a dedicated server, but at a lower cost.

Enhanced security

Because virtual servers are isolated, cross-functional security risks are significantly reduced. Users can also implement their own security measures according to their needs, without depending on the security configurations of other users.

How does virtualization work ?

Virtualization is at the heart of how VPS servers work. It allows to divide a physical server into several autonomous virtual servers thanks to virtualization software. Each VPS server runs its own operating system and applications, operating independently of other hosted units on the same physical machine.
