Our agency uses Media Temple IaaS Cloud to host client websites. We host both staging sites under development as well as live production sites. Our digital/web group uses the platform and has been using it for more than six years. We had tried other platforms in the past but found them to not meet our needs.

  • Easy to use platform with a full feature set.
  • Responsive and helpful customer support.
  • Scalable and flexible environment.
  • Affordable and reasonable price points.
  • There are often errors with automatic updates and management of 3rd party tools including software such as Plesk.
  • I think the communication options could be improved. It isn't as easy to set up alerts as you would want.
  • Your plans are grandfathered so you are somewhat stuck with an old plan.
I think Media Temple is well suited for a somewhat tech-savvy and sophisticated dev shop that wants something powerful to use but doesn't want the complexity of something like Rackspace or AWS. If you don't need an insane level of control and would have something more on a managed basis, Media Tempe IaaS is the way to go.

We manage some projects that use Media Temple services, so we're in charge of deploying and managing resources inside this service. Media Temple is very user-friendly and has some nice features like daily backups, SSL certificates, Wordpress fast installs, caching and it makes SSH access easier. Also, it has great performance.
  • Great user interface.
  • Great performance.
  • Creating a Wordpress website is very easy.
  • We had some issues changing static files (like robots.txt) since it was cached by the server.
  • Had some stability issues with one of our websites.
  • It's not cheap if you compare it to other great services.
It's well suited to many use cases like Wordpress managed websites and more advanced ones that need VPS or even cloud hosting, which is a very scalable solution. But I think it's not a cheap service, so I couldn't recommend it to smaller clients since it doesn't justify what they're charging.
