    mothercloud.com ? lol

  • What is the difference between all these providers? Do they all use their own custom software or is there some generic software like OpenVZ?

    DigitalOcean does use a modified version of KVM.

    HA + SAN Storage?

    1.

    Windows == Double cost? (lol?)

    2.

    The API is currently a rather terribly implemented direct copy of DigitalOceans'.

    3.

    RAID level (if any) is currently rather dubious, can't confirm.

    4.
    (in direct reply to @darknyan)
    No special storage tricks here, just some Samsung 840 PRO SSDs.

    Waiting on approval of a few things before I can give out more specific information.

    I'm rather concerned because CentriLogic has a past of false claims, such as them being the "First public cloud in Canada" being a rather large joke, Peer1 has been offering cloud services since 2008.

    weird domain name.

    Most of 'cloud' provider only offer 1 vcore :) Traditional VPS provider still better

    Let's bet which dot-name will collapse first ;)

    said: The Whir says they are motivated to beat AWS and Digital Ocean.

    Not sure what sort of audacity makes them think they can simply be 1 USD more expensive than DO for less resources across all the most popular plans, and that's all fine and dandy.

    Also only CA and US, and wants me to select the location at sign-up(!!! wtf). Branding is "interesting" to say the least, but at least it's something out of the ordinary, and not in the silliest way we've seen so far.

  • Let's see how much committed they are.@serverian why don't you introduce your own cloud based service?

    Oh totally forgot about it anyway this mother cloud want to succeed when they are offering low specs with high price tag. Who will leave digitalocean or vultr to try them.

    Maybe their I/O speed is 1MB/s faster than DO and Vultr.

    I don't think so it will make any difference .Also they have poor branding,packages, only two locations, crappie UI and they are making big claims to defeating digitalocean they are daydreaming.

    Yeah, there isn't much marketing for Cloudive. I've seen like two offers compared to ~4-6 for Winity, Backupsy, VPSDime, e.g.

    I'd love to see more offers for Cloudive but serverian isn't allowed to post offers for a while on LET.

  • rds100rds100 Member

    The Cloudive name at least sounds nice, compared to all the other recently created clouds - like Vultr, wable and now this.

    The pity is most of these "cloud" providers are fooling people by selling VPS on the name of cloud.And some people here always wanna be first to introduce it whenever such a "cloud" is launched.I highly doubt they themselves know what a cloud server actually is.Only a few of these "clouds" got cloud like features but still can't be called true cloud.

  • @K2Bytes said:

    What do you think a true cloud is? The whole cloud concept is based on a marketing buzz. Everyone can call their product anything. You think hourly billing and HA makes an infrastructure cloud? There is no cloud hosting. There is cloud computing which is a synonym for grid computing.

    Where do you think the term VPS come from? Is it a scientific term for virtual machines? No, it is a marketing term just like the cloud. VPS term makes it look like you are on a non shared environment. But it's not in the actual world, is it?

    Stop being so obsessive with terms in the hosting industry and look at the features. If you are covered feature wise then you are good.

    You can most of those see those who are looking for cloud i.e this latest thtreadhttp://lowendtalk.com/discussion/26983/could-you-recommend-some-cloud-vps#latest

    have just heard the name of "cloud" & are not familiar with its features unless they are told by some of the knowledgeable fellows of this community.

  • I signed up will try them sometime later.We really need new companies on this cloud business.More companies more advantage for consumer.

  • @serverian said:

    Well VPS does give you isolation as compared to shared hosting? You use dedicated RAM, HDD etc

    If word cloud is non-sense how would you differentiate between AWS & DO? Where DO are simply selling KVM vps on the name of cloud.Like someone else mentioned in another thread there is a very good definition of cloud infrastructure here:

  • I wouldn't trust an article which says Openstack is a hypervisor.

    Amazon does things differently, Rackspace does things differently, Google Cloud does things differently. Yet, people call all of them cloud. Rackspace didn't have HA by itself, you had to configure it yourself last time I checked.

    As I said, people are free to call their product whatever they want. Such as VPS, VDS, Droplet, Linode, Cloud VPS, Cloud Server...

    As I said, what it matters is the features they offer and how those features relate to you.

  • Vultr is still cheaper than DO and this.

  • No it doesn't.

    Infrastructure-as-a-Service like Amazon Web Services provides virtual server instanceAPI) to start, stop, access and configure their virtual servers and storage.

    Digital Ocean API does this.

    In the enterprise, cloud computing allows a company to pay for only as much capacity as is needed, and bring more online as soon as required.

    Digital Ocean and AWS do this exactly the same with bundled packages.

    Because this pay-for-what-you-use model resembles the way electricity, fuel and water are consumed, it's sometimes referred to as utility computing.

    Digital Ocean and AWS do this exactly the same as per hour or per month billing.

    As you see the article can't describe the differences and can only point some features of many.

    Only the companies can tell their differences offered as every company handles things differently. Some offer X feature, some don't. And none of them classifieds them as cloud or not.

    As I said, there is no scientific definition for cloud hosting.

    No useful information here. Move along.

  • VirtovoVirtovo Member

    Agree with @serverian. Cloud is a marketing term and means different things to different people depending on feature set required.

    For some, it's all about scaling and being to fire up and destroy instances quickly and resize those that are all running (preferably through a full featured API)

    For others its about HA and redundancy

    To others, its about having a sky looking website, a quick signup process and selling people easy to manage VPS products.

    Compute pricing seems competitive, but HD storage at $0.15/GB can't compare to AWS's $0.05/GB. Still, no charge for IO so that's a plus.

  • alexhalexh Member

    These new providers have one thing right: their billing model. It's convenient to be able to put $10 into account credit and create/destroy VMs on an as-needed basis, especially when evaluating the provider.

    Aside from SAN storage, it'd be nice to see more providers implement private networking; I'm not sure why it's not a more common feature.

    Still waiting for a cloud provider willing to announce own IP space or assign larger nets than stupid /29s... seems to be just impossible.

    Every provider with own structure can announce customer block. Just contact them directly, some charge it, some not, but most with own structure will do it.

    just deposit your 50usd to vultr, and you'll get extra 50 credits with them. More worth!

    I guess their mothership has lost contact with the mother planet earth. They are heading to another planet now.
