    awesome.

    We have an #IRC channel #onlinelabs on irc.dedibox.fr
    There's couple of interesting people, entrepreneur, geek and passionated that are testing the cloud on this channel.

    We try to be very quick to repond the user requests / tickets on every platform, but my favorite is IRC. You can easily reach us there anytime.

    Don't hesitate to come and talk to us if you have any questions.

    I sent you an email so you have mine too.

    Have a good day

    Yep I got the invite and your email but haven't had the time to try it out yet -- hopefully today or tomorrow will find the time to. Thanks!

    I would be really happy to see your post about our cloud, and share your experience with my colleague for a better feedback.

    If you're not aware of the project at all, it's on public beta, completely free. And it's only ARM instances that are totally dedicated It's a two year project but still very young, so we are eager to read your feedback and improve the platform.

    Waiting for your email
    Michael at Phoronix .com. You can easily find my first/last name on almost every page of the site.

    I'd be happy to benchmark the Online.net ARM cloud... are you able to get me access to the systems? Generally that's when I engage in benchmarking new clouds is when I'm able to get credits/access to the systems.

    But this one choked me as ruan stated, it's completely advertisement without real comparaison to other infrastructure.
    I'm moved to Online.net (the concurrent of OVH+), and I'm pretty sad you're doing some post and benchmark of this sort of cloud, and not the #armcloud of Online labs...

    Hope to see one soon, and thank you anyway for all the others posts

    $2700 for special promotion right now: http://www.tyan.com/campaign/openpower/

    I would like to see the CPU scaling i.e. 8 vs 176 cores and a comparison to the Amazon EC2 instances.
