SolaDrive Hybrid vs VPS

Standard VPS

It can be difficult to decide whether you need to upgrade from a shared or reseller hosting account to a VPS, or even a Hybrid VPS. This is why we have laid out the details on this page, giving you a brief insight into both services, and letting you decide which is best for your needs.

For most people, a standard VPS will be all they need. It offers a great amount of flexibility, freedom, reliability, and performance over a standard shared hosting account. It gives people the ability to have the features of a dedicated server without leaving a hole in their wallets. In most cases, a good VPS will also offer more reliability and performance than a low-end dedicated server would!

Both standard VPS and Hybrid VPS have their favorable features and benefits, but they are in two different worlds in terms of the service they provide; it's up to you to decide what you and your site or application really needs.

Hybrid VPS

While a standard VPS will meet most people's needs, a Hybrid VPS offers even more power and performance for people who run high traffic sites and need more than a standard VPS can provide.

With only a few other customers on the server, depending on the plan you pick, and being isolated by the XEN virtualization we use, you can be rest assured that you will have the raw power of the plan you pick to power your site or application, all the while being housed on a very high-end node that is completely redundant on many levels to provide the reliability that a standard dedicated server cannot.
