The Difference Between Dedicated Hosting & Virtual Servers


In a nutshell, one of the major differences between dedicated server and virtual server is that resources of a virtual server are split between different websites or hosting account while a dedicated server is literally dedicated to your own personal use. You have rights to all of the resources of the machine, and you can configure the hosting environment anyway you wish.


Dedicated Servers

Interoute’s Dedicated Hosting Services provide business critical applications a platform with the stability and performance they demand, and are suited to organisations where regulations and compliance deem it necessary to use dedicated devices. These servers are built using standardised industry leading equipment; however, Interoute also provides options for bespoke hardware where necessary.

Virtual Servers

Interoute provides a variety of managed virtualisation options which are available within a shared or private infrastructure of resources, or a combination of both. Our virtual server hosting offerings include:
  • Managed Virtual Servers – Provisioned by allocating resources from an “in the cloud” shared infrastructure of processors, memory and storage.  This service typically provides a very economic hosting option allowing customers to provision virtual servers, firewalls and storage from one of the virtual hosting platforms on Interoute’s pan-European network. All virtual devices are configured for high availability, so in the event of a hardware failure the service will automatically restart on an alternative device, meaning near zero downtime whatever the application.
  • Managed Private Cloud – For solutions where a dedicated VMware infrastructure is a requirement for additional security and reliability, Interoute can provide a Managed Private Cloud. This service provides the greatest technical flexibility and performance for services. Interoute provides a dedicated cluster of virtual server hosts and enterprise storage, which can scale out as required. Onto this cluster, virtual machines can be deployed in any configuration within the limitations of the infrastructure and software.
  • Integrated Dedicated Hosting & Virtual Servers – Our dedicated servers and virtual servers offer the option to integrate managed dedicated and virtual services into a single solution to benefit from the best of both infrastructures. This enables organisations to take advantage of virtualisation technology benefits such as reduced CAPEX, simplified upgrades and expansion, and dynamic performance for these types of servers, whilst also providing stable performance and supportable infrastructure for those functions where Dedicated Server hosting is more suitable.

Dedicated servers are most often the fastest and most powerful choices available, although some of the high-end VPS options can give the lower performing dedicated servers a run for their money.Virtual private servers has its benefits, although, they are a little harder to get one’s head around than dedicated servers, mainly because dedicated servers are something that nearly everyone can identify with: a computer.  Virtual private servers are different from dedicated servers in that instead of running one hosting account on one computer/server, virtual private servers share a single server.
