    Free Cloud Hosting

    Brightbox Cloud, the UK's first true* IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) platform.

    FAQs

    Is this just for Ruby?
    No! you can run almost any operating system and therefore almost any type of web application you like.

    Which operating systems can I use in your cloud?
    You can run almost any operating system that supports Virtio (most do). We'll also be adding a "compatibility mode" for other operating systems soon.

    What are Zones?
    Zones are physically isolated datacentres, with multiple networking links between them. Traffic between Zones is routed via our private network and is not chargeable - so it's easy to create resilient applications with servers in two zones.

    Where are your Zones?
    We currently have two Zones in Manchester, UK - we plan to launch additional regions in separate geographical locations throughout Europe and the US in due course.

    What do you mean by "true" cloud?
    Offering VPSes at a single datacentre (even with an API) is, in our humble opinion, not a "cloud". There are actually very few existing "true" cloud providers - Amazon EC2 is, of course, currently the largest and most well known.

    I've been playing with this for a few days, it is rather amazing in how it "just works" with direct commands from my ubuntu workstation here.
