What is IDrive Compute?

IDrive Compute is a reliable and fast-performing edge computing solution with multiple edge regions located around the globe. Businesses can host multiple NVMe-powered instances on an infrastructure loaded with powerful physical servers and robust hardware resources that are managed off-premise.

Create and manage multiple virtual machines, run projects of any size with minimal latency, enable scheduled backup for the instances, take snapshots in real-time, and attach more space to them with block storage volumes - all from a centralized web console.

What is a Virtual Private Server?

A Virtual Private Server, commonly known as VPS, is a virtual machine dedicated to the needs of the users. A VPS acts like an actual computer that can be used to store information and run programs or applications from anywhere without being tied to a particular physical machine.

Every VPS has its individual operating system and a specific amount of hardware resources that is split among the users on that server. Thus, each VPS is isolated from the others in the same server and can be rebooted separately.

A VPS is lower in cost compared to a dedicated server but provides better reliability, security, and performance than shared hosting.
