    Cloud computing

    I'm considering trying out some cloud solutions from rackspacecloud. Not for FWS, another site. Their cloud servers option looks very promising. Does anyone have any experience in hosting sites there or somewhere else using cloud hosting? Any hosts here offering cloud hosting?

    I was checking into Mosso a long time ago, I forgot about them because it was about a year before anything changed. It was just the landing page. I might try them out in the future when I need them.

    Peo I believe most of web hosting providers offering that must have forums. That can be their cloud hosting customers do not posts here and their own forums could be ghood place to do the search on. Just a thought.

    Yes, rackspacecloud was previously known as mosso. So far rackspace is the most interesting cloud host I've found. I'm leaning towards the Cloud sites option instead of Cloud servers. But then I miss out on all the fun in adding more ram one day and removing it the next. Also, the number of "computing cycles" is a little bit hard to estimate, but I guess I'm below the limit on that.

    I'd be interested in using rackspacecloud. Looks very nice. I'd love it to manage my shared hosting clients. And just buy separate dedicated servers for my nodes/vps users.

    Rackspacecloud just increased the price for their Cloud sites option. From $100 per month to $149 per month. Why did I wait...?

    Make sure you have informed them about that. I recommend discuss that with your web hosting provider in any case. mail server is separated subject

    This is an interesting topic. Cloud Hosting is still not precisely defined as term wehn it comes to the service. On an infrastructure level it is clear, but not when it comes to different types of service. Rackspace are pioneers in this and shall be considered from anyone who needs to move to the clouds.

    Hello,

    i just search for Cloud Computing and i got here...

    I have good news for you:
    A New European Cloud Hosting Provider Launched...in Bulgaria, one of the newest members of the European Union, country with rapidly growing IT hosting industry.

    Fully redundant, scalable Cloud hosting that runs cPanel/WHM.

    The average round-trip delay (RTT) time for European home users who ping Cloud.bg ranges from 10 ms to 60 ms. Pinged from London Cloud.bg is reachable for 47 ms, from Ljubljana, Slovenia - 35 ms, from Paris - 71 ms, from Madrid - 77, from Berlin - 47 ms, from Sofia, Bulgaria - 1.5 ms, etc. The average RTT for Israel is 97 ms.

    Thanks

    I have read about a new Cloud hosting provider - http://www.cloud.bg/en - that has been launched in Europe. It is a cPanel/WHM based cloud hosting and probably the first of its kind. It is quite interesting and I have personally used it for my video podcast.

    I'm trying out VPS.net at the moment. They have an interesting cloud solution similar to Rackspacecloud Server. I like the idea behind the concept of instantly adding new nodes when needed. Each node consist of 0.4GHz dedicated CPU, 256MB RAM, 10GB storage and 250GB bandwidth. I tried to add a node and it worked nicely. The machine restarted within a couple of minutes and suddenly I had one more node. I have contacted support once and they replied within minutes.

    Since I've just started using it, I'm not ready to recommend it just yet. The first impression has been very positive though. I'll give you an update in a couple of weeks/months.
