Slicehost score another point
I have try out slicehost for 2 month before and linode is on my list, if i manage to squeeze out some time to get a VPS for some development, currently both VPS are most of the developer first choice VPS. Here are some of the comparison between this 2 vps hosting provider.
- Documentation – in term of documentation,linode have a wiki with some of the basic information but slicehost has lots of step by step and complete documentation , that is one of major reason as a web server admin newbie, i try out slicehost first. slicehost 1 : linode 0
- Value of money – slicehost cheapest plan is $2p for 256MB RAM disk space, 10G and 100G bandwidth, linode cheapest plan is $20 also but with 360MB RAM, 12GB disk space and 200G bandwidth. slicehost 1 : linode 1
- Datacenter – before this slicehost only have one choice which is St. Louis , where linode have 4 data center for you to choose . slicehost 1 : linode 2
But slicehost just make an announcement yesterday, the new member will be place at Rackspace Dallas datacenter, Woo Hoo! a new choice of datacenter for user ! slicehost make a good strike and score another point.
I will still follow my original plan and give linode a try but i think i will try a slice on the new dallas dc too.
