When LightSpeed Hosting started out, we found that even highly tech-savvy people were confused by setting up and operating hosted servers. More importantly, they didn’t want to know, they just wanted it to work. They wanted to know that their applications and data were safe, and that they’d be able to get to them when they needed them. For almost fifteen years, LightSpeed Hosting has used cool technology and truly exceptional people to provide that peace of mind.
Then came the “Big C” - the Cloud - and things got confusing again. How do you pick a Cloud provider? On a basic level, storage in one data center is pretty much the same as storage in any other one. Sure, there are cool things about how we do it that make us different - fancy stuff like custom-crafted white box network gear running hardened Linux cores - but unless you’re like us and get all worked up at a room full of blinking network lights, that’s probably not why you’d pick one Cloud provider over another one.
