    I fail to see what's so "cloud" or "utility" about a normal monthly VPS.

    Hello and thank you for your comment. To address your question

    1) we offer both a VPS and a Cloud offering. To understand how a Cloud differs from a VPS - it usually involves high availability, elasticity and utility billing (in our case, daily) - you can read more here - http://www.cartikacloud.com/cloud-hosting/

    2) our billing is done by the day for any additional resurces (ie CPU, RAM and Disk) - we chose daily for our utility model vs hourly vs by the milisecond or whatever metric you would like to use - as daily best fits our desired model and target audience

    Thanks and please let us know if you have any additional questions

    That is the problem with the industry; people simply do not understand the difference of an offering such as Cartika's. The term Cloud is thrown around loosely by even some of the most well known hosts in the industry. "Most" cloud providers simply throw a homemade SAN on a VPS node and offer a control panel to adjust RAM, CPU, and disk space, and call it a Cloud.

    Heck, most people I talk to do not realize the differences in virtualization platforms between something like Virtuozzo and XEN. There is a lot of confusion out there for the average client.

    Cartika's offering is different by its redundancy of being brought up instantaneously on another node should failure occur; along with enterprise grade storage. Wrap that up into a package with all the included "freebies", monitoring, and simply the best support available and I find you'll be hard pressed to find someone offering the same in a managed Cloud environment. Cartika has never been about being the "cheapest" and cutting corners to get there. They have always pointed their business model towards businesses seeking the highest quality hardware, uptime, and support for business and those able to see the "value" in such services.

    I have to say I have "not" used Cartika's Cloud servers, but have been a client for probably 6 years or close to it (found them here if you look in my post history from years ago). Started with reseller accounts, moved to dedicated solutions, and now moved to fully managed VPS solutions. I have to say the managed VPS solutions are a bargain if you compare the hardware, performance, reliability, included services, freebies, and their support. Again, it's about value to serious businesses and may not be the best out there for those willing to sacrifice those things I have mentioned.

    I have had my VPS's for 3 months and will be doing a formal review on their managed VPS's in the coming months. I have had "0" downtime in this period and the raid 60, 2.5-inch 300GB SAS drives simply scream.

    I had to put my 2 cents in, and it's obvious by their ComputerWorld nomination they are doing something different than most others.
