Well the major difference between the two are the location of the node points of the server. In shared cloud servers, all the server nodes are present in a shared environment where everyone utilizes the server resources from a single location. As a result, the resources are commonly distributed among the nodes. Whereas, when you’ve launched your website in a vps (virtual private server), your node is present in a shared environment which is the cloud network but you’ve a dedicated space & hence, dedicated server resources. In shared cloud servers, when traffic increases on one of the websites, you experience a degradation of your website performance. It’s because somebody else starts cashing up on your server resources. Whereas, when you have a vps server, you don’t have to worry about such concerns. It’s because in a VPS server environment, you get dedicated space & resources to handle the load.
