Dedicated server triumphs over Virtual Private Servers(VPS) because of a simple reason that it's allocated exclusively for your use. VPSs are segments of a server that you can rent to host the simplest of applications. However, the total resources of the server are divided into multiple VPSs. This can be useful for small applications but in case of medium-sized or large applications, a dedicated server would be more useful.
However, when we talk about dedicated server, it is a server whose resources are allocated solely for your use. If at any point you feel the need to scale your server up or down due to change in the workload, it can be done quite easily without a fuss.
Here are some of the comparisons of dedicated and virtual private server based on price, performance, and capacity.
It is obvious that the dedicated servers cost a lot more than the virtual private servers. Theoretically, the VPS is a small section of a physical server, the costs are decided by the portion of the server you avail. on the other hand, dedicated servers are provided entirely to you. Hence, you pat as per the specifications of the server(processor, RAM, hard disk etc.).
You would think that dedicated servers would perform much more efficiently than Virtual Private Servers. This is not entirely true. Actually, it depends on the activity you are performing on the servers. If the resources used by the activity or application running on the servers can be accommodated by the VPS, then the VPS and the dedicated servers would have the same performance. Therefore, for applications using minimal resources, people prefer vps over dedicated servers. However, some applications depend on the entire resources available to itself. For such applications, dedicated servers provide optimum performance.
The term scalability refers to the feature of a server where you need to upgrade its specifications in accordance with your requirement. The dedicated servers win hands down in the field of scalability. Since the entire server is provided with you, you can change or replace any of its hardware components as your requirements change. On the other hand, VPS is a part of a server and to change its specifications means to create a new vps entirely. It is not impossible but a very tedious task.
Hence, the choice of dedicated server or VPS completely depends on your requirement and the price vs performance evaluation. It should give you optimum performance but also suit your budget.
