Needed a reliable Web hosting partner to take the business off the ground

First-hand benefits of a Cloud Server solution

Flexibility• “In the last week alone, I signed on two new contracts, one

of which is projected to have daily visitors in the tens of thousands. I needed something we can upgrade on the fly, so that service is not interrupted to the site with high traffic, or to any of our current clients and online projects.“ - Slattery

Affordability• “Utility based pricing just makes sense in virtual computing to

me, and cloud servers offer the power of dedicated servers without the rigidity of physical hardware allocations.“ -Slattery

Reliability• “I've found virtual servers deployed over a network of

physical nodes to be far more reliable than a single dedicated box. And if something goes wrong, it's only a software level issue, not a physical level. Issues of that type are far easier and faster to resolve than that of a physical one.“ - Slattery
