Cheaper than Amazon (especially for bigger servers). Compare with other cloud providers.
Relatively new (in the cloud of course) but already biggest and most powerful contender to Amazon.
Very reliable infrastructure.
Fast scaling up and scaling down processes (typically under five minutes). Scaling processes involve downtime.
Backup/restore processes are a bit slower than with Amazon (as we store backups on Amazon infrastructure). Availability of snapshot backups.
When a server is stopped, we just charge for disk usage.
Most expensive bandwidth (so if your application uses a lot, the invoice will go up).
A good number of locations (11). USA – Iowa, USA- South Carolina, USA – North Virginia, USA – Oregon, Europe – London, Europe – Frankfurt, Europe – Belgium, Asia Pacific – Singapore, Asia Pacific – Sydney, Asia Pacific – Taiwan, Asia Pacific – Tokyo.
