Thanks. Was curious your thoughts on this. Before aws (et al) I ran dedicated servers for years and never thought anything of it. The biggest advantage for me is the “fully-managed” aspect though to what degree that happens is the trust you relinquish to the cloud provider it’s a piece of the pie I don’t want to mess with at times. I have an idea that is coming back over and over and the current infrastructure architecture I’d like to play with is a hybrid dedicated and cloud. Also I hate the pricing options with cloud I feel dedicated (with shopping around) you get far better choices!
