By contrast, ElasticHosts offers two types of cloud server product – KVM-based virtual machines (VMs) and Elastic Containers. Our KVM technology provides full hardware virtualisation for VM customers, enabling every user to run the operating system of their choice and offering greater flexibility and configurability than a traditional container-based VPS. We separated the wheat from the chaff by merging the top-ranked, US-based hosting companies from sites like WhoIsHostingThis, HostMonk, WebHostingStuff and CNET, among others — outfits that ranked sites based on server uptime, verified user reviews and technical support. This left us with just over 200 well-regarded hosting companies. A good start.
Fast reliable 40Gbit Mellanox network with high-end Intel E5-2697 processors. No more bottlenecks. No downtime. Pure high availability cloud servers guaranteed. Custom ISO allows you to mount a configured image on your cheap Windows VPS and run through the boot & setup processes as you would on a bare metal server.
HostGator still claims that they aim for and achieve 99.99% uptime outside of the isolated incident. I personally stuck with HostGator for most of my sites, since I figured that it was an incident that Endurance will learn from – and that even the biggest data providers hit trouble occasionally (ie, Google & Amazon).
