article by Victor Shchenkh
Cloud computing is becoming more and more relevant for use in small businesses and private use. In this article I will try to briefly review the major providers of cloud computing services and highlight the advantages and disadvantages of each.Amazon EC2
Great service. Seems a little expensive for personal use at first glance. In the cheapest solution: (1.7 GB RAM, 160 GB hard drive, 1 to 1.2 GHz Xeon) will cost $ 75 per month depending on the amount of traffic. If this is with the prices of VPS services of medium and high power compare EC2 look appealing
Benefits in comparison to conventional VPS services.Huge choice of operating systems and software with great options like “nginx plus, plus php”. Another valuable option is the easy creation of custom instance with necessary software and settings.
almost immediate creation and implementation of server.
flexibility in the adaptation and the ability, all custom settings in separate screen.
comfortable save for the exam and reviewed quickly. Creating server takes only a few minutes – then you can select the desired configuration on a test day for about $ 1 paid to shut down. Is not that cool
More RAM, HDD and CPU
Disadvantages:uncertainty of the data stored on the local server memory. Server outages, errors in software or hardware can cause data loss. To prevent that – you order S3 (Simple Storage Service), or require you provide your own memory. This problem can be solved with Amazon EBS (Elastic Block Store).
speed and performance of local storage and EBS are not transparent. Nor is it easy to understand what factors affect the stability.
Rackspace Cloud Services provides hosting, cloud computing technology is used. In a few words, you get access to distributed hosting network is based on large servers that can scale the Rackspace much more flexible, that means VPS services. It can not be compared directly with Amazon, but can be considered as a good alternative in consideration
The performance is very good and reliable; ftp speed seems to be 100Mbs. Static pages and DB connection are also very fast.
Server Management and Control Panels are designed and well thought out properly.
