What is a container VPS?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 3:18 pm

A container VPS is a virtual private server that runs in a virtual environment, and is designed for hosting applications and websites. Containers provide isolation between applications and the underlying operating system. This means that containers can run multiple applications simultaneously without interference from each other, and as a result, they are a popular choice for cloud-based applications. Container VPS providers typically provide a range of container images, such as Ubuntu, CentOS, and Oracle Linux, that can be used to create a server.

PRO TIP: A container VPS is a virtual private server that uses operating system-level virtualization to provide a secure environment for applications. Each application is isolated from the others, making it more secure and reliable. However, if one application is compromised, the others may be as well.

They also provide a range of management tools, such as an API and a CLI, that allow administrators to manage the server. Container VPS providers typically charge a monthly fee for their services, and they offer a range of features, such as private networking and storage, that make them a popular choice for businesses.
