From my understanding, VPS runs on a shared computer anyway. I gather you're weighing up the pros and cons between VPS (or shared web-hosting) and dedicated servers. Well, since VPSes are commonly shared, you're not guaranteed 100% of the resources. In fact, if you hog them (even without realising, eg. someone attacks your site) they might cancel your account.

Unless you're running a very small company, I'd suggest using a dedicated server or at least a very reputable hosting company to run your database. Most VPS system administrators just reboot the server when there's a problem, and you don't want that happening to your database server all of the time.
