Default VPS: What It Is and How It's Useful

We've talked a fair bit about home virtualization in the past, but now we're going to take a different turn and tackle VPSs, or "Virtual Private Servers". In essence, a VPS is a virtual machine in the cloud, allowing you to log in from anywhere and gain nearly full control over a remote machine with tons of bandwidth to do a variety of cool things.

You can take a look at our VPS primer and then discuss it here! Further questions are welcomed!

Sweet article. Again, I'm a hardware junkie through and through but this has me curious. I'm looking forward the next installment.

I had a couple of VPS's in the past, but they were quickly replaced by dedicated boxes because the IO access was way too slow. Colocated servers ftw!
