I honestly believe that it is well suited for companies, whose sole requirement is robust accessibility. Since the training part for admin takes a lot of time, I feel that it might not be suitable for small companies who are still looking to grow. Also, the product sometimes faces scaling issues and I feel like it might not be appropriate for smaller companies as they might look to expand in the future.

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

  • 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.

I'd like to point out that Huawei Cloud Network Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is very simple to use and operate, and we can easily perform operations on it using the documents that are available on its support site. We can easily download the documents from the site, which are very useful for doing any configuration on the cloud and for operations.The security level is very good; enabling traffic and defining security rules is extremely simple utilizing their cloud portal in GUI form, which makes it simple to use, and the performance is also good; they provide a variety of solutions to meet customer needs.

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.
