Why would I use a Cloud Server instead of a shared web hosting package?
With Brinkster Cloud Services you have full control over the server you are on, no “noisy neighbor” issues, and the ability to add resources or remove them as you need them.
Why would I use a Cloud Server instead of a dedicated server / bare-metal server?
Cloud Servers can be created in minutes, to your exact specifications, and scaled up or down on the fly. To adjust RAM or disk size on your server simply turn it off, adjust the settings, turn it on, make any necessary operating system adjustments, and you are done. With a dedicated server you would have to make the request and then this would have to be done manually by an admin, a process that takes hours instead of minutes with a Cloud Server.
