Virtual Private Server (VPS) or virtual dedicated server is a virtual server that appears as a dedicated server to users, but installed on a system serving multiple websites. There can be multiple VPSs hosted on a single system. Each VPS has its dedicated OS, Random-Access Memory (RAM), Central Processing Unit (CPU), storage, transfer limit, and network. VPS stands as the hybrid of shared and dedicated server hosting, as the resources of the main server are shared between VPSs and every Virtual Private Server Software has its own resources too. The clients get the root-/administrative-level access to the VPS. The Virtual Private Server Software (VPS) enables its clients to have control over servers and accounts.

VISIONARY LEADERS

Visionary leaders are the leading market players in terms of new developments such as product launches, innovative technologies, and the adoption of growth strategies. These players have a broad product offering that caters to most of the regions globally. Visionary leaders primarily focus on acquiring the leading market position through their strong financial capabilities and their well-established brand equity.

INNOVATORS

Innovators in the competitive leadership mapping are vendors that have demonstrated substantial product innovations as compared to their competitors. The companies have focused on product portfolios. However, they do not have very strong growth strategies for their overall business, when compared with the visionary leaders.

DYNAMIC DIFFERENTIATORS

Dynamic Differentiators are established players with very strong business strategies. However, they have a weaker product portfolio compared to the visionary leaders. They generally focus only on a specific type of technology related to the product.

EMERGING COMPANIES

Emerging companies have niche product and service offerings. Their business strategies are not as strong as that of the established vendors. The emerging vendors include the new entrants in the market, emerging in terms of product portfolio and geographic reach, and require time to gain significant traction in the market.

Operating System
The VPS market has been segmented on the basis of OS into Windows and Linux. Cloud deployment options, such as public, private, and hybrid, are available to organizations if they choose to move their infrastructure on the cloud. Hence, there are various parameters, such as cost, security, flexibility, scalability, and compliance, related to the movement of the IT infrastructure of an organization on the cloud. Though private cloud is the most secure among all the cloud deployment options, it is also the most expensive deployment model. Organizations, therefore, choose to deploy services on the other cloud deployment models, such as public and hybrid. The deployment options are chosen by organizations depending on the size and business requirements. This, in turn, enables enterprises to reduce the hardware costs and enhance reliability, scalability, and interoperability. Depending on the costs and value-added features, enterprises can choose from the 2 above-mentioned OS

Windows VPS hosting gives users more control over the settings on the Windows installation, i.e., full administrator access is provided.

LINUX

Linux VPS hosting can be defined as a website which is hosted on a VPS and uses Linux servers. A Linux VPS can be defined as one of the best options if a user wants more control over the things that have been installed on the server where the website has been hosted. Linux VPS provides with a multi-tenancy feature, which means allocation of resources, such as email accounts or disk space can be done easily. Linux VPS is easy to install, and it is viable to deploy tools and add-ons as per user’s requirement. Linux VPS hosting
