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?

Well. they are scalable and flexible, but don't really offer you the features VPS or dedicated ones do. It depends on your needs...Why don't you consider VPS?
