Only good if you are willing to learn TONS of new terminology

We needed a diverse server platform setup each instance serving a different purpose. AWS allowed for us to do that but we had to outsource the whole project as it's just not simple to set that up. So all in all it's been a pain to use and manage.

Pros

I liked the ease of upgrading your instance or adding volumes.

Cons

Pretty much everything else, all of terminology is foreign and complex, finding anything in the dashboard is absolute nightmare. The billing is not clear or transparent. If all you need is a server for your app/business this is not the place to go unless.
