Being "somewhere" (including the could) still leaves you with a probability of an outage.
The VPS can crash, can be DDoSed, can be hacked... The infrastructure supporting the VPS can
crash, loose data, etc.
Speaking of limiting downtimes, it's of course safer to have a virtual server in the cloud
(say amazon for example), because they provide a very strong infrastructure, and redundancy.
