"It is simply awesome! a lot better that EC2 from AWS (for GNS3)"

What do you like best?

Using it for GNS and qemu it is the best option ever, because you have the whole machine for your purposes and you will have it after a few clicks.

The support was very useful and they are very friendly, the chat was a piece of cake and the documentation is easy to find, also there are a few videos in youtube but if you have had experience with amazon web service then this would be pretty the same

What do you dislike?

Becase you will own the physical machine, even if you shutdown it you still have to pay it. This is the only thing you will miss about EC2 from AWS

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You will own the whole machine, so you can do whatever you want (KVM) with it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lab simulation for proof of concepts. We use it for test design in high availability environments
