    Maybe one of us could create a disk image (Amazon calls them AMI's) with everything preinstalled/preconfigured and share it with everyone. You can make an AMI public. The only concern would be making sure people change passwords for all of the services. The guys over at viviotech.net are the ones w... read more »

    @Min, I haven't gotten that far yet, but I'll either explore MySQL's built in replication or (more likely) use Amazons RDS service. They host your MySQL database(s) and you can optionally have it placed in multiple locations. Looks simple enough. http://aws.amazon.com/rds/ As for DNS, here's the... read more »

    @Paolo, I just joined, but I figured everything out on my own before they approved me. I'm sure I'll need to go there eventually. For anyone else thinking of switching over, it looks like none of the flash tools exist (cfdocument type flashpaper, cfchart type flash, cffileupload). I can live witho... read more »

    @Paolo, I'll try to write more later, but the short answer is: Get familiar with Amazon's EC2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E78VKAPwmDM I ended up choosing Ubuntu because it was less resource intensive and less expensive than Windows. Choose an Ubuntu AMI from the Community AMI tab. Make sur... read more »

    For whatever it's worth, I've moved my site to Amazon EC2 using Ubuntu / Apache (for static content) / Railo (cfml engine) / Tomcat (java server) / MySQL. It took a couple of days to freshen up on my command line skills, but everything is working just fine. Best thing is, the entire software suite i... read more »

    I have not gotten that email yet. I really hope I don't. When I asked about the that I had received, they said they wanted to focus on the higher end customers. I'll be angry when I get the email. I'll write a letter to their CEO, but I'm sure it will fall on deaf ears. I'm also looking at http://... read more »

    As for other providers, I've been watching closely as Railo (open source CFML) server has gained steam. There are a few hosts offering shared/vps/dedicated solutions. They have a list at: http://www.getrailo.org/ I was looking at: http://www.viviotech.net/?railo... read more »

    Steve - you got a notice saying that existing Cloud VPS accounts are going to be terminated??? I did get a notice about a month ago saying that they would no longer be offering the Could VPS product. I called for clarification and they told me that they were just no longer setting up NEW Cloud VPS a... read more »

    Just want to mention that since the acquisition of hosting.com, service has been deteriorating. The shared servers restart several times a day. The tech support insisted that if you want reliability, you need to move up to their VPS plans. The good news is that jrun has stopped running out of memory... read more »
