    Look for fast and redundant servers because you will need around 3-4 to start.

    Customers would prefer cloud hosting because it is on a redundant environment and *generally* it would be significantly faster.

    Cloud Hosting is more reliable and faster than traditional "shared" hosting, wherein mostly people oversell and crowd the server with too many clients. This is the reason why people prefer cloud over shared.

    As to reseller plans, sorry mate I have no idea.

    Check the reseller offers forum. I recall coming across a cloud host with some pretty good reseller prices.

    Considering the very high cost of setting up a Cloud that is anywhere remotely near 'acceptable' for a large scale deployment, you can do what we do. We simply control our own dedicated/private Cloud which we rent. Meanwhile, we're busting our butts to grow and expand, creating a very positive track record which will help us financially in the future to deploy our own AppLogic build.

    Unless you have a VERY large budget to do it right, I wouldn't both building/deploying your own Cloud from the start. Do what we do, purchase a dedicated/private cloud resources from another provider, grow your business until you have a good enough track record and general interest to invest into your own deployment/build, and then go from there. Any reasonable provider will allow you to create/destroy/scale VMs instantly, this means you can offer Shared hosting on a VM, Reseller on another, sell Cloud VPSes, etc.

    Feel free to PM me with any questions.
