This is all in line with price cuts happening right now across the entire industry, so expect more to come. The Race… Read More

7 Years of "Cloud Inflate-uation": For about seven years, the IT industry and its pundits have been infatuated with the "cloud" – specifically Amazon Web Services (AWS). Tech startups and their investors have flocked to AWS with inflated expectations on the notion that cloud economics were better than hosting applications themselves. After all, start-up resources are tight, agility is required, and any time not wasted on infrastructure management can be put toward business and product differentiation. It all makes sense, but start-ups and investors alike… Read More

I’d like to shed some light on the intricacies of our business in hopes that customers have a better understanding of what it is hosting providers do, and what best practices are.

Don’t believe the HYPE: Dedicated Hosting is 3x cheaper than AWS I am a disgruntled ex-AWS customer turned happy 5-server Codero customer. Keep it up! Dennis L., Singapore CoolAsia This prompted me to realize that an opposite and counter-intuitive trend is going on in the face of the hyped news of Amazon’s enterprise cloud growth. It’s something we see… Read More

I hear so many people talk about the "open cloud" as if it was some sort of panacea. It seems for some the “open” label matters so much now that it supersedes anything truly meaningful to the customer. Too many hosting vendors are talking about openness on cloud as if it’s the ONLY thing that matters. The question is - does “open” really matter that much in the long term?
