cloud vs vps

Post by newltoso » 2016/11/14 10:16:23

Hi, I am very confused about cloud and VPs, I have searched internet for this and found that cloud can be a VPs but VPs can or cannot be cloud. From what I understood from internet is that cloud means combining the resources of lot of hardware or virtual machines into one. Like 5x 3ghz , 5x24gb ram, 5x150gb HDD will make a single big server with 15ghz, 120gb ram, and 750 GB HDD. And we can even sub divide that into vps's . Now if the above definition is true I want to know which software can be used to combine hardware resources into a single hardware and if this definition is not true then what is the right definition. Please do mention if you yourself has combined the resources of multiple machines into one.
Thanx for taking the time to read my post

I've moved your post to the Social forum as it doesn't appear to be CentOS specific.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
