Although I’m very happy with Dreamhost, my dream host this new internet services company looks interesting. I suppose they’re making a similar kind of system as Amazon’s S3 and EC2 products – big bangs for your buck.
For people running large web applications this type of hosting is a must. For work we’re using a local, but very large, company for our hosting (which includes email, websites, extranet systems and much more). I took a look round their datacentres a couple of months ago, but as (regular reader of this blog) Mark says “once you’ve seen one datacenter you’ve seen them all”. Wise words. There are only so many rows of rack-mounted servers a man can take.
The good thing about this Mosso offering is they seem to straddle the gap between the “serious” hosts (of which I count Dreamhost one) and the really huge stuff such as Amazons systems. I’m sure there’s a market for it, and their mix of technology, user-friendliness and slick design makes me think they will be a force to be reckoned with.
