Why Smart Server instead of a VPS?

Why Smart Server instead of a VPS?

Smart Servers are very much a buzz word, but it’s a buzz word that works. I’d like to first explain what a Smart Server is while citing some of what we provide on our Smart Servers page:

Smart Server is a dedicated server with a Smart Management Layer on top. This allows us to sub-divide a bare-metal server into smaller increments while still offering dedicated resources, resulting in lower prices for consumers.

Why Smart Server instead of a VPS

The primary benefit most users will get out of a Smart Server versus a Virtual Private Server is guaranteed specifications. With a VPS you will either get shared space and be able to use the specifications on demand, or you get a caged grouping which still can be affected by other tenants on the server. A Smart Server will never be affected by other users on the same hardware and there’s typically only 2-4 others on a given system.

Cost comparison between the two is also marginal, so it can sometimes provide a nice transition from a VPS but not yet to a dedicated server when you need that extra kick in resource availability. Stop allowing neighbors on a VPS plan slow your system down!

You can find a cost comparison base on specifications below, which show a comparison between both a standard SATA hard drive plan, but a SSD plan of each tier as well.
