I'm having huge issues with media temple. I have a grid hosting account signed up on media temple currently but am absolutely not ahppy at all with the services. To start with I've been getting too many Network errors and even to the point that I can't even run a wordpress installation without it dying out. Sometimes when executing a script thats a bit intensive the server just dies and I am prompted to download the php file being executed.
I'm looking at cloud server options by rackspace but before I get into this I'm a bit skeptical. I'm not very savy on what could computing is and how is it different from grid servers by media temple. INfact from teh definition of cloud servers and resources being distributed etc to handle spikes of traffic it sounds very simple to what mediatemples grid servers claimed to be.
