Both cloud and VPS run on virtualization. VPS servers are formed by partitioning of a large physical server and you can customize it the way your business requires. You share the server with several other users but get allocated resources. In the cloud environment, on the other hand, the cloud offers you resources from across a number of shared server machines.

If you are only looking at the cost, it will depend upon the type of services you require. Private cloud is expensive with higher infrastructure costs. You may have to consider hosted private cloud or the public cloud but you may not have the control that you want. Technology requirement is more in the cloud environment making it very expensive and costlier than the VPS. In the VPS you only pay a part of the expense of a single server.

But then VPS requires you to pay a flat fixed monthly fee as you choose from the plans that the hosts offer. This means in case you do not require some of the resources that are being offered in a plan and you leave them unutilized you still pay for it.

Cloud hosting gives you the flexibility to pay only for the services you consume. Cloud also scales on demand and provides you with resources whenever you require managing traffic spikes.
