Overall Satisfaction with Media Temple IaaS Cloud

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.
  • We had a great experience managing some virtual machines with no issues, getting more things done in less time.
  • Even our clients could do some managing and inspection without technical skills, since its interface is user-friendly.
  • It's not a cheap solution, so simpler websites could have the same features spending less.
We've been using both DreamHost and Media Temple for years and Media Temple has a better overall experience, offering a more robust solution in terms of scalability and customization. On the other hand, DreamHost has great support and a better pricing policy. So it depends on what are you looking for and your budget as well.
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.
