It’s a trick question, because the answer is that there is no difference. A VPS (Virtual Private Server) and a VDS (Virtual Dedicated Server) are the same thing. The purpose of this page is to say exactly what that thing is.
The virtualisation technology used to deliver VDS services are typically ‘Type 1’ Hypervisors such as VMware ESX or Microsoft Hyper-V. This virtualisation software runs directly on physical servers (whereas with VPS servers, the virtualisation runs on top of the server operating system), and is typically configured in Clusters.
