    Not at all. Cloud has allot of downtimes, it depends on the nodes you are but amazon had dowtimes and problems with their cloud as well mosso

    They actually currently have more problems then just using a HA cluster if uptime is what you need

    According to Mosso, that is but a small sample of their overall (massive) cluster!!!

    They may say its small but its not or I am just a lucky customer and included in jsut about every outage. I have complained so many times and so frustrated with Mosso I wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy. There is no SSH so if your transferring a large site have fun, there is no ticket system you have to TRUST them with issues they say they will fix as well if you want SSL you need to pay an extra $20/mo. There is no flexibility in mysql user accounts so its all (default) or nothing. There is not an proactive alert system for maintenance so your site will be toast and you check to find out. Now you can subscribe to the rss feed of the page and get alerts but that was something I needed to do.

    I have never seen so much downtime with any host and I have used my fair share. MediaTemple was as bad as I thought it was.

    Mosso you have lots of work to do...

    They say their cluster is so massive, however I never hear anyone posting about Mosso. It makes me really wonder because usually when I mention Mosso in a thread, the name is either associated with problems, downtime, or goes unbeknownst by anyone. Mosso doesn't seem to be all that popular, so who is actually using that massive cluster of theirs?

    So, why do you stay? Is there something there that you absolutely have to have?

    I'm using many Amazon instances (20+ currently and sometimes more across zones) and have had only one issues in the last 8 months. I use the cloud to create stability for the application users by being able to create a virtual network or cluster of machines that otherwise would take up a rack. If there is an outage with one node in one zone my other two, for example with my app servers, pick up the slack in other zones.

    Is one single instance on Amazon stable? If you have mission critical stuff I would put it on a dedicated with a good managed host with all the goodies like RAID drives, dual nics etc. But if you're going to build a multi node system serving an app I believe, and have proven, that the cloud can preform wonderfully.

    Amazon's cloud has a lot of shared resources in it.Its functionality is also a bit higher than other ones.

    The "cloud" isn't there to host a single website, or a single anything for that matter.

    The idea behind the "cloud" is scalability and on demand upgrading etc.

    the cloud is best represented by say VMWare Server installed on a limitless machine.



    The idea is that you setup your OWN infrastructure. You want a High Availability Cluster that spans multiple locations? Guess what? setup 10 nodes in each location you want. Think of each Node as a Server. So now you are running 20 servers.

    I'm on cloud server of Mosso (not the $100 / month cloud sites). It's cheap and unmanaged, thus far, everything's quite good and no problem at all.

    A cloud platform should be less likely to have problem if designed properly. I'd put my money on Amazon but mind you they have suffered more than twice massive outage since they started their business several years ago. If maximum availability is something you are after, don't bank on one provider and try geographically distributed multi-providers.
