Cloud Computing - Who's your cloud provider?

Post icon  Posted 26 June 2011 - 02:06 PM

So i've been working heavily on the Amazon Web Services EC2 Cloud platform and can say that they provide outstanding cloud resources compared to other cloud providers. The ability to create 1000's of instances within minutes and how easy it is to create snapshots, load your own AMI's and they also provide alot of OS's. Compared to Rackspace which are more expensive, only provide 64bit Linux OS's and generally less eager to work with on their platform.

Who is your cloud provider and why?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 1

I've used Amazon S3 and EC in the past. My new provider will be the company for which I'm starting work tomorrow...and providing that service is part of what I'll be working on :)

I've screwed around a bit with Azure, but never with anything production-like. Just some testing with some free time MS gave MSDN subscribers. Wasn't really my cup of tea, but then again, I have no need to manage cloud instances at the moment. If I needed to host large-scale .NET deployments, I'd be back to them pretty quickly.
