How to select cloud provider.



So we choose the cloud provider for the project. What I would
recommend and for whom:

1. For a project that starts from scratch with a single server. Where
the project will be some time in development, and the load will
increase gradually. I recommend Digital Ocean. 30 GB SSD drive and 1GB
RAM is cheap, fast and enough to deploy the project. Very simple and
intuitive interface make it easy to go to the schema with an service
per instance when load increases. Simple clone the original droplet
and leave just one or part service on new droplet. The main advantages
in this case lowest price and easy of deployment.

2. If you plan to transfer to the cloud the complex, high loaded
project from multiple servers, you should pay attention to Amazon.
Greater flexibility, a large selection of OS images. Allow easier and
faster to transfer existing services. A wide range of additional
services to reduce the cost and simplify the operation of the project
as compared to the "bare metal" solution. Among the many services
Amazon you will find easy replacement of each of the components of
your project.

3. If you start from scratch to develop highly loaded
service(application). If you need a flexible multi-functional
environment. With the ability to deploy services in one click. You can
pay attention to the GCE. In this case, the ability to deploy virtual
machines rather secondary. Compared with possibility for developers
and resources provided by Google App Engine. It is extremely
inexpensive to operate a solution "application as service". The
project can be built in such a way that each user will pay for itself
the resources used.

Please note it's my own (DevOps) view of question. Each case requires
a individual approach. If you have any questions you can connect to our team of cloud experts. We provide:
  • Cloud Consulting
