    1 dedicated server or 2 VPS servers?

    I checked and wanting to buy 1 new dedicated server with price $69/month from OVH
    Basic configuration
    CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1245v5 - 4c/8t - 3.5GHz /3.9GHz
    RAM: 32GB DDR4 ECC 2133 MHz
    Disks: SoftRaid 2x2TB

    but with this budget I can get 2 decent VPS server with price $30 each one from 2 different hosting companies. What do you think about this idea. which is better?
    I am needing your advice.

    1 dedicated server can be better than 10 VPS servers because it uses dedicated resources which is not shared with other nodes.
    I am using both dedicated server and VPS so I think If you have a good budget, dedicated server is always the first choice.

    Its all about your requirement, time and technical skill to manage the system/hardware and the provider prefernece. If you need a single but dedicated resources with more memeory and CPU and you are ok to go with a budget provider like OVH, you can handle OS installation and other basic things, etc above is a good choice. If you just need a decent platform with multiple instances which should work in a few clicks, you may go with some VPS providers.

    Crazy idea, why not virtualize the dedicated server? Sometimes it's nice to just have projects virtualized for backup and recovery purposes. You can do this on your own dedicated server, helps you know that all the resources are dedicated to your projects. There are many platforms out there that make this an easy task to manage. End of the day it really depends on the project, do you have one project or many?

    Off-course! Dedicated server is the best choice. It will have the good server configuration and the resources. Instead of hosting the two servers separately, it's recommended to have the single server. It will become easy for you to manage and secure the server. You can setup the monitoring on the single server which will become easy for you to handle.

    It will be easy for you to setup the backup too. If the projects are different then go with one else dedicated server is recommended.

    All the new range of OVH VPS use KVM so they are as "dedicated" as any dedicated server along with being cloud powered by Openstack so you will never get hardware failure.

    KVM Openstack VPS are better than dedicated servers is every way apart from port speed which is 100mps on VPS.

    Definitely dedicated server would be 10 times better choice than VPS server. If you never have budget issue then I’m sure you would buy a complete server without sharing. Although VPS is is near to dedicated server a server slice would be your but, did it satisfy you. A slice? You would defiantly prefer a complete server where no other user.
