Advantage is you will get better uptime for cloud hosting but in cloud you will get less resources than VPS hosting or dedicated hosting. If you want to host 2-3 sites you can go with cloud/

In a nutshell pros and cons over VPS:

+ Higher availability
+ Easy resource scalability (up/down)
+ More sophisticated hypervisors with less limitations
+ Higher control over your VMs

- Higher cost

Disadvantage - inconsistency on what "cloud hosting" really means.
Open to interpretation by each host. The term is thrown around so much, with so many different descriptions.

Indeed. I always tell people cloud is architecture not service.

A cloud is just a layer of hardware which your VPS sits on and can be expanded or reduced statically or dynamically. A cloud also eliminates the chance of complete hardware failure to be almost impossible.

Some of the advantages of cloud hosting would include :

Quick activation - automated creation of Cloud infrastructure without physical installation and hardware connectivity
responsibility - a guarantee for the proper functioning of hardware and software
Flexibility - multiple server operating systems within the same Cloud application
guaranteed performance - your hardware resources are only guaranteed for your needs regardless of the number of users and the type of applications that are in the EUnet "cloud"
Scalability - rapid change of needed resources, at the request of the user or independently, through the control panel
flexibility - development of complex systems from catalog of prepared components. Our Cloud Platform is the ideal solution for implementing the most complex business-information systems. You have at your disposal a whole team of engineers who will build an optimum solution as soon as possible
Reliability - The cloud system will function even in case of technical failure of the server or parts of physical infrastructure. Data automatically becomes active on another server.
Migration - fast synchronization and relocation of the entire Cloud infrastructure, as needed.

When it comes down to disadvantages, I would like to hear opinions from others since I mostly got a positive feedback from few friends of mine who host via Cloud.They do pay ''little bit'' of a higher price for it, but I really haven't heard them complaining to much.

I guess the question needs to be little more specific. There are certain cases where the application of Cloud differs and shows advantage/disadvantage...so whats your actual requirement with Cloud?
