"Great pricing on IAAS services, but support out of Germany can be difficult sometimes"

What do you like best?

ProfitBricks has a nice interface that is easy to use and provision live servers with a visio-style drag-and-drop association. You can build LANs, VMs, disks, etc by "connecting the dots" so to speak.

Pricing is fantastic as well. With a purely utilitarian style pricing model (like AWS), but at a lower price point that most of the competitors it is a very compelling option.

Also, their Las Vegas Datacenter is located right here in town and we have physical access to the same facility that they are located in. This makes coordinating efforts and access to our data and systems much easier.

What do you dislike?

Getting support generally goes through their engineering team in Germany and the time and language barriers can be difficult to deal with at times.

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

ProfitBricks has allowed us to scale our clients' infrastructure dynamically without purchasing new hardware. We have built a deep partnership and they are always there to help with the business side of our operations, as well as providing assistance on the technical side.

"Mainly positive experience"

What do you like best?

I really enjoyed the ability to visually design of a network and the computing resources. At the same time built in multi-zone, multi DC distribution took is a welcome feature. Customer support was outstanding, in a few instances where we needed it we were on the phone with 2nd level engineers within a few hours. "Free" and seamless elasticity is of a great help and saves devops dollars.

What do you dislike?

One obvious shortcoming at the time (a year ago, and perhaps this is fixed by now) was the account access management. At the time it was rudimentary, allowing only one login per organization. We also found that auto scaling down was an issue.

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

The company was running an image recognition and processing platform. We had a significant demand for computer power and elastic scaling. Profitbriks allowed us to run our architecture without extra devops cost. The same stack would require dedicated devops team if ran on AWS.

"Great hosting platform."

What do you like best?

The simplicity of use. Their control panel is great and you can easily scale and create new servers, datacenters, connect them to different LANs and deploy them to production. Also, they are more cheap than AWS and we have a great uptime with them. Support is great, every time they have contacted me very fast.

What do you dislike?

The UI of control panel still has to be polished somehow, but they are on to it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Cheap, realiable and easy to use platform for cloud hosting.

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

I work with very large scale of servers and customers and using Profitbricks has helped me to achieve what I want.
