Re: Reliable Cloud host ?

Linode.com is not cloud based but they offer IP failover between VPS
instances at no additonal charge - their pricing is excellent, I have
had no down time issues with them in 3+ years with 3 different
customers using them and they have nice OOB and programmatic API
access for controlling VPs instances as well.

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.

Basic requirements:

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 transfers)
