Cloud Server Quick Review – GoDaddy Cloud

godaddy_logo_rgb_full_w

A relative newcomer to the cloud market, GoDaddy, through their “GoDaddy PRO” brand is offering cloud servers with features which are comparable to the likes of Digital Ocean or Vultr. Some of the features you will find here include KVM virtualization, SSD drives, private networking, and instant server creation. Pricing, platform, and plans are similar to the competition. The cloud control panel at GoDaddy is pretty good, and fairly straightforward. Although GoDaddy has only 3 data centers so far they appear to be building out this product, having announced a 4th data center in Singapore is on the way soon.

Cloud Servers – Digital Ocean vs Vultr

Picture of servers

When we talk about cloud providers many people think about the big three, Google’s Compute, Amazon’s AWS, and Microsoft’s Azure. While these are powerful services, they are generally complicated, and can be expensive. In some cases pricing may as well be written in hieroglyphics. There is relief for those of us who only need the basics, and value simplicity, enter cloud servers.

Cloud servers are the new iteration of what we knew as VPS (Virtual Private Servers), but greatly improved. These systems run on a cloud platform, and are generally cheaper than traditional VPS providers. Cloud servers also offer many add-on services and features that are invaluable to the busy developer. The cloud server companies that I looked at offer low, per hour, pricing. They also offer instant server creation/destruction and simple interfaces.  I narrowed it down to 2 competitors, Digital Ocean vs Vultr, and both are great services.

Dude your phone is on fire! ( Oh Samsung… smh)

So for those of you who have been living under a rock, Samsung is facing major issues with their Note 7 phones. Their flagship mobile product is literally a ticking time bomb. The situation over there is grim, this faux pas has cost the company billions, and tarnished its reputation worldwide. With the fierce competition in the mobile arena, this could not have been worse timing. Many are calling this a massive win for those Apple guys out in Cupertino, and I can’t say that they are wrong. Samsung is a big company, and I’m sure they will survive the storm, and their shareholders will recover their losses, but the question that remains on my mind is simple, How in the Hell did they let this happen.
