CenturyLink Private Cloud is a decent cloud hosting platform, we used it because we wanted to try something new as our old platform had some scaling issues. We were not disappointed. However it does have some maintenance issues, but I feel those are nominal and overall I'd neglect those if the pricing is right.
  • robust framework
  • amazing customer support in case you're facing maintenance issues
  • collaborative ability is off the charts
  • UI can be really improved, since it sometimes lags a lot
  • Very few know about the product, so they should advertise a bit more
  • There maybe scaling issues since it's a relatively smaller company compared to its competitors
CenturyLink Private Cloud is well suited for companies that are smaller and wouldn't have to undergo scaling for a longer time. Apart from that, it does well in almost all categories. It wouldn't actually be useful for bigger companies since the UI is a bit laggy sometimes and usually, it's not advisable for big companies.
  • Pricing - Very affordable pricing
  • Provides a wide range of plans
  • Customer support is very active and helpful
  • We reduced our cloud hosting costs a lot after switching to CenturyLink Private Cloud
  • Maintenance is very easy since there is documentation available for every part
  • It had some issues with the UI but we can neglect those considering the pricing options they provide.
It doesn't stack up that well against them, since these are big companies and have huge infrastructures and they provide smooth scaling features. However CenturyLink Private Cloud is a little concise and not many people know about it, so I feel like they should advertise more and try to improve their customer outreach.
