Cloudatcost 80% off


  • Banned

    Bahahahaha.. I just saw this. Pretty funny. Wonder if it's 80% off the price or 80% off the service?



  • They're still bugging me after triple billing me. Hopefully it means the company is 80% gone.



  • 80% of zero is....

    I still have my Plex server over there... I wonder if my login will even work... gasp It works, lol!

    We haven't been using that server for Plex much lately (got a few things to upload to it still). Having a local Plex server is nice for quickly watching stuff and then sending it off-site for archival later.



  • Wow, they keep trying you have to give them credit for that, or not.

    Eventually they'll either succeed or I'll lose my data... all 500kb of it, lol.

    Oh wow...that's...terrible...I have an account I use for VMs with the place I work that's build using openstack:
    Up to 10 instances
    20 vCPUs
    40GB RAM
    10GB network
    4 IPs
    Not sure about the Storage, but I'm currently using 190GB (all SSD storage)

    All administered remotely through a webpage...it's amazing for trying things out for me atm, as if I mess up, I delete and it creates a linux VM in less than a minute normally...so teaching myself the linux basics again! 😃

    Cool. They don't have any pricing on their site, so that makes me less than excited to talk with them, lol. Especially since I'd likely be a very small fish in their pond.

    It's a relatively new offering...but I'm sure they can figure something out that suits you! If you decide you want to find out about pricing after the trial, let me know and I'll find the right person for you to talk to 🙂

    EDIT: http://www.ukfast.co.uk/calculate-ecloud-flex.html?cta=cta_button&product=cloud+hosting - pricing options



  • Yeah, they have that "Go Bugger Off" button there. No thanks. If they are not proud of their pricing, I don't have the time to waste considering them.



  • For the amount that these kinds of companies get told how offensive it is when they tell customers (especially IT people) that they don't value their time or take them seriously at all there is zero excuse for not having pricing, especially on a commodity service like this. The whole point is obvious pricing, right? Either they put zero effort into understanding their market (even just common sense) or they are actively doing something bad (having bad pricing, going for a less valuable customer, etc.)



  • Corrected the link in my first post to show the 30 day trial, and also the above post has a link to the price calculator

    Why are they hiding that and only putting the "Quote" button on the main page? That's foolish. Talk about turning customers away for no reason.

  • So the 2x2 is one quid less than Digital Ocean's UK offering that is similar.



  • That they are advertising a partnership with VMware honestly worries me a lot. That's the same "first red flag" that we had with CloudatCost and why we knew something was wrong there right away. VMware is not cost effective for a cloud provider.



  • DO and Vultr offer similar systems for $20 a month... I'm paying $25 a month to KimSufi and have got 8x the ram, and 2TB of spinning rust storage for $25 a month. I have console access to my machine if I need it, I can get into recovery mode if I need it... if something happens to my spinning rust, they replace it, and I restore from backups... and go (I am unaware of any RAID on this particular server, or if they even offer that).

    The Data Center where this physical box is located has redundant power and internet, etc. I am only less protected against physical problems with the box. than if I were to use DO or Vultr.

    I am starting to wonder why should I choose a VPS like DO or Vultr or [email protected] (I already paid for mine, lol)... vs a Dedicated server somewhere?

    Only reason that there has ever been... elastic capacity. That is the singular purpose of cloud computing.

    http://www.smbitjournal.com/2013/06/when-to-consider-a-private-cloud/

    If you can't leverage elasticity, then you are paying a premium for a service you aren't using.



  • @dafyre For me it's all about price. Only running an occasional connection to it via OpenVPN and not much else yet means I really only need that $4 or $5 a month VPS.

    The VPS is probably not going to have as much downtime as a dedicated server with a single drive assuming they're in the same environment. If you need the processing, ram, storage and don't mind a little bit of downtime then that dedicated server you have is great.
