SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and conduct different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much anything - you may install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.

Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do through SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux server, reboot your entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
