What is the Cloud?

Before we learn about Windows Cloud, let’s make sure we understand what the cloud can offer users in general. “The cloud” is a term that refers broadly to any non-physical server system. Cloud systems can be accessed globally from anywhere, hence the nickname “cloud systems” for their persistent connections. 

Another way to think about cloud-based systems is as a copycat of regular, managed, and dedicated physical servers. Cloud systems mimic regular servers without having to be established in actual physical servers. 

There are different cloud options. Solar VPS offers both Linux and Windows Cloud for an affordable cost. You can compare these two options easily by visiting our website or speaking with a customer service representative today to find out which is the best investment for your company. 

Overview of Cloud Features 

Many elements work together to create reliable services in Windows Cloud. Software databases work together in a network system to provide service to users. Data centers are also important. They are where the information is stored, because virtual servers still rely on physical databases to store information securely.

When you invest in Windows Cloud with Solar VPS, you will quickly learn about how all cloud features work together with a reliable connection. We optimize your connection, security, quality, and performance because we truly care about your success. Solar VPS Windows Cloud plans come with standard functions and additional add-ons to give you even more ease every day.

How to Choose Between Linux and Windows For Your VPS

While the basic functionality of your Virtual Private Server (VPS) will be similar, there are subtle differences in how Linux Cloud VPS servers and Windows Cloud VPS servers operate. How do you decide? In today’s blog, we’ll look at a few criteria to mull over before deciding on the right operating system for your organization’s VPS.


If you’re one of the decision makers reading this post today, one of your top concerns will be the overall cost of owning and operating your VPS solution. While the Linux VPS software is open source application, which makes it free to own and operate, the Microsoft VPS software does require a licensing fee for your organization to use.


A second concern to consider regarding the choice between Linux and Microsoft VPS products is the overall performance quality of the software. While Linux VPS software operates with more speed and requires less attention to updates, Microsoft VPS requires regular reboots when undergoing maintenance. Microsoft VPS also requires more resources and has been found to be slower to operate.


The third thing to consider when deciding between Linux and Microsoft for your VPS needs is the level of security provided by the operating systems involved. Generally speaking, Linux VPS solutions provide a greater level of security–as system administrators are the only power users who can modify the VPS itself. On the other hand, Windows VPS can be nearly as secure, if installed with the correct safeguards and protocols from the beginning.


A fourth element to keep in mind when choosing between Linux VPS and Microsoft VPS is the level of technical support available in the event that something goes wrong. It should be noted that since Linux is open source, there is a lot of assistance available within the Linux online community but the level of quality help is debatable. On the other hand, Microsoft VPS has constant technical support from the Microsoft IT team.

Compatibility With Other Software

One final criteria to consider when choosing between Linux VPS and Microsoft VPS is the kind of work that your team will be doing. Linux software is more compatible with other open source applications such as PHP/Perl, Java, Python, CGI, and SSH. Microsoft software is more compatible with Windows-based applications such as ASP Classic,, MySQL, and Access.

The Final Answer

When you consider the five criteria above, it’s important to carefully weigh the pros and cons of each VPS solution. Be aware that your choice of VPS hosting options will impact your workflow. When you’re ready to find the right VPS host, consider Solar VPS We provide cloud hosting plans to suit your current and future VPS needs.

Which Operating Systems Should I Choose For My VPS?

A virtual private server (VPS) is a physical server that is partitioned into several virtual ones. When you sign up for a virtual private server, you also need to decide which operating system to choose. Depending on your choice, you will then determine which application software you can install on your virtual server. It will also regulate how long it takes to tune everything and how well your server performs.

Windows or Linux

The two popular operating systems for a VPS are Windows or Linux. A lot of people prefer Linux over Windows because of the open-source nature of Linux. Linux becomes a favored choice since it is integrated with a lot of open-source programming languages. Moreover, Windows also happens to be more expensive compared to Linux. However, depending on your situation, Windows may be a better choice for you. The Windows server environment is highly recommended for ASP/ASP.NET development, and for clients that want to make use of an MS SQL database. Another advantage of choosing a Windows operating system is that it requires very little technical knowledge to utilize effectively. If you have technical knowledge, Linux will work for you. However, if you aren’t technically savvy or you are developing in a language supported directly by Windows, you should opt for a Windows operating system. Evidently, there is no one clear choice and it depends on your needs and requirements.

Advantages of Linux vs. Windows

The Linux operating system is flexible and reliable. Linux VPS servers use fewer resources, which increases website performance and reduces downtime. Additionally, since the Linux platform is open-source, a website owner can change server configurations, perform updates, and install different applications, based on their needs. On the other hand, the Windows operating system provides improved control. Every user is presented with Remote Desktop access, through which a user can control and manage his server anywhere and at any time. Windows VPS servers provide inherent security since they are furnished with professional antivirus software and anti-spy programs, as well as reliable firewalls. When you sign up for your VPS plan with Solar VPS, you get a great suite of VPS tools. We have a powerful control panel in addition to comprehensive technical support tools. With Solar VPS, you only pay for what you need since you have the flexibility of dynamically changing your allocated resources based on your needs. Additionally, we ensure safety and efficiency and provide excellent customer satisfaction. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us today and get your cloud VPS set up with ease.

Bandwidth Utilization in the SolarSystem

What is Bandwidth and How Does it effect my SolarSystem Cloud VPS?


Bandwidth Speeds in the SolarSystem

Normally we use this space to blog about a variety of topics which server as a portal for information and knowledge. We normally use this space to explain Cloud hosting concepts and ideas so you, as the end user, have a greater understanding of the SolarSystem solution you are either currently using or looking into. However, in this blog post, we want to answer a question which was recently posed to us via Yahoo! Answers. The question asked, which comes from the European continent, was:

“I was browsing SolarVPS’s VPS plans, and they allow you to customize. There is an option of 1TB through 8TB bandwidth, and I’m not sure if that’s the speed, and if that’s the limited amount per month that you are allowed to use. Please only answer if your sure, I don’t want any misleading thoughts.”

Due to this, we want to take the time to answer the following questions regarding SolarSystem bandwidth utilization: What is bandwidth in terms of my Linux or Windows Cloud VPS? How much bandwidth can I utilize per month per Cloud VPS? What is our network bandwidth transfer rate? And finally, how much does additional bandwidth cost in the SolarSystem? Continue
