Does anyone have any recommendation for a reliable cloud host?
We require 1 or 2 very small virtual hosts to host some remote services to serve as backup to our main datacenter.
One of these services is a DNS server, so it is important that it is up all the time.
We have been using Rackspace Cloud Servers. We just realized that they have absolutely no redundancy or failover
after experiencing a outage that lasted more than 6 hours yesterday. I am appalled that they would offer something
called "cloud" without having any failover at all.
1. Full redundancy with instant failover to other hypervisor hosts upon hardware failure (I thought this was a given!)
2. Actual support (with a phone number I can call)
3. reasonable pricing (No, $800/month is not reasonable when I need a tiny 256MB RAM Server with <1GB/mo of data
