The main differences are:
- Clouds are usually accesible via an API allowing you for dynamic reosurce provisioning
- Clouds have a pay-as-you-go model, while VPS usually has a fixed monthly price that includes certain bandwidth
- VPS is focused on the server/compute with hard disk local storage while clouds usually provide more services such as database, load balancing, networking, etc.

In a VPS server, if a system fails, your VPS will go down causing downtime until the problem is fixed. In case of Cloud if any failure accurs, the system is re-routed to another available physical resource causing minimum downtime. With cloud you have separeted hardware resources as with VPS you share your resources with others. Other thing is OS. With vps you get one as for cloud you could have as many as there are offered.

Hosting providers sell Cloud hosting in many different ways. In easy terms a VPS is hosted on a single host node server whereas Cloud Server is hosted on a cluster of servers and you server will move around that cluster. If one of those nodes fail your Cloud Server should move to another node seamlessly. There's other benefits as well but this really depends on the benefits offers by the specific provider.

Hi,

Cloud VPS will give you more uptime compared to the normal VPS.
Cloud VPS will give you flexibility to upgrade or downgrade online, which is not possible to provision on a normal VPS that requires a reboot.

In a condition where the underlying hardware fails, a normal VPS will also suffer, but when it is a part of cloud, the VPS goes to a different server without you knowing and affecting any of your data..

Virtual Private Server:
-Is typically less expensive than cloud servers
-Storage is based on physical server limitations. In other words, when you meet your max VPS capacity, you have to buy more space.
-Only one operating system can be utilized by each physical server.


Cloud Servers:
-Each customer on the cloud can select their specific operating system
-the system is highly scalable and offers easy access to resources from anywhere.

It really depend tho, the cloud things to me is just a ''rebrand'' to indicate a virtual server.

You can have VPS running on a high availability SAN or LUN and you get whats called ''cloud''

As you said cloud usually refer to an hourly billed machine for the set of resource you chose more then a fixed amount of resource billed monthly but the difference is mostly there the virtualisation technology to archive its pretty much the same.
