    I don’t track all the various hosting companies to be honest. If they provide good support, if they provide a good admin interface, if they have good SSD and GB ethernet and backups then I consider that viable for my stack.

    If you want a better conversation about the right hosting company to use, I can highly recommend you chat to Jeff or any of the team over at Gridpane – they have built an interface on top of an improved version of my stack and they are the most passionate hosting company I have ever talked to. Can’t recommend them enough to be honest.

    “You can pick companies like Digital Ocean, VULTR and Linode, or you can bring your own server from almost any provider that has Ubuntu KVM based VPS servers available. AWS and Google Compute Engine support, natively within the application, is coming very soon. ”

    So – probably SSDNODES would be fine if they use KVM?

    I’ve changed this to ‘Approved’ and I’ll run an actual comparison of third party hosts including SSDNODES as soon as I can.

    I’ve created the Trello card for this here, but it’s at the back of a fairly long backlog:
