Hi Ben,

This all depends on the VPS platform the hosting provider is using. If the VPS is built on a cloud a virtual server is superior in almost every way.

1. Fail Over Protection
2. Ability to instantly upgrade
3. Lower cost

If the hosting provider is not using a cloud platform and the VPS is hosted on a single machine with shared resources a dedicated server would be better.
Like I said it's a difficult question to answer as it depends on what is powering the VPS.

Sure :D

1. Failover protection means the VPS is not dependent on any single piece of hardware. If some storage, RAM or CPU fails your VPS is unaffected.
2. If you have a dedicated server and want a faster CPU or more RAM, the server has to be disconnected and the physical components upgraded, with a cloud VPS adding more RAM or CPU cores is done with a few clicks and a reboot.

KVM VPS is great for anyone who like to have full control over their VPS
Advantages of Kvm:
- Full virtualization, so the behaviour as a dedicated/physical server
-Your own kernel and modules
- Your own virtual disk, graphics adapter, network card
- Generally more stable compared to OpenVZ

OpenVZ VPS is usually a good choice for anyone that doesn't have special requirements:
-Container style virtualization, shared kernel with the host
-A little bit better performance to KVM, since there is no additional virtualization layer between the host and your VPS, which means that there is basically no overhead on assigned CPU / memory and disk resources.
-Cheaper

VPS hosting provides with almost all the features offered by a dedicated server however at a lower price. You will get the complete control of your VPS hosting account including full root access for installing the preferred applications which is not possible with a shared hosting account. As an isolated hosting environment is provided by the VPS, you get complete freedom for running the scripts. You can also send out a mailing list as you are provided with your own mail server and you don't have to think about the mail server IP getting blacklisted.
