I believe for small to mid business application hosting Centurylink provides an adequate service. When moving to larger scale business enviornments I believe the limitations, slowness is going to become a problem

Vultr Bare Metal

If you are a large organization where you have a lot of traffics in your web app, Vultr Bare Metal
is good for you. If your scenario is something like, you sometimes have
high traffic, and sometimes low traffic, Azure might not be the best choice if you want to cut your cost.

Cons

CenturyLink Public Cloud

  • Perhaps ease of use - it's not convoluted but a little more streamlined of an interface would be great
  • Make your presence more known - in a world of heavily advertised cloud options CenturyLink is not at the top of the pile and I think it may be due to a lack of awareness in the business community. Advertise!
  • Streamline functionality - interface can be a little slow at times.

CenturyLink Public Cloud

I did not select the application hosting environment - I was a user. That being said I do not have much of a voice in the difference between hosted services that I have experienced.

Vultr Bare Metal

Vultr is fairly cheap. Vultr also is better than many cheaper and bad providers out there. It might not have all the features we needed, but whatever it has, it has the best.
