    Dedicated servers are way more powerful and somewhat more customisable in terms of hardware (More RAM, SSD's etc).

    You can run GSA from a decent VPS, there are tons of providers on this forum :)

    Imagine a dedicated server is a whole pie. Each VPS is a slice of pie. Some VPS's are bigger slices of the pie. Some pies (dedicated servers) are bigger and better, some VPS's are bigger and better.

    You could have a VPS with better specs than a dedicated server. It's all about the numbers.

    LOL @ wizard04. Refer to his post for the real difference between the two.

    Been working so much lately that it's sometimes hard to think and type properly due to the fact that i'm thinking about my campaigns 24/7, lol.

    With that said, I don't think it's convenient to run GSA on a dedi considering the cost. Better to run it on a VPS with a lot of ram.

    WTF are you taking.
    VPS = Virtual Private Server
    dedicate server = dedicate server

    VPS is when you take dedicated server and cut it in slices. Usually with a VPS you will have own dedicated ram, IP and hdd but everything else is shared.

    There is no shared windows or any OS with VPS, every VPS has its own OS ( OS you prefer )

    Dedicated is always better because you will not share the node and the processor, But have in mind that dedicated with the same configuration with VPS can cost up to x10 more.
