Overall I liked you video.

In my opinion a big advantage with cloud hosting is not dealing with nonsense like RAID arrays and worrying about hardware failures.

Both AWS and Google have something called live migration and they’ll move your “server” from one computer to another as soon as they detect a problem with the hardware. It does this without interrupting anything running on the machine. Obviously doesn’t work for catastrophic failures but those are exceedingly rare.

If I were to teach someone starting today I would advice them to steer clear of dedicated just to avoid the mess of setting up a machine, raid, make sure things are secure, etc. Amazon/Google/etc. have entire organizations dealing with that crap on your behalf.

This ties into what you said about separation of concerns. Perhaps I’m missing of an aspect that dedicated still offers but in my mind dedicated is a dying horse.

Hello sir , I want to start a programming blog build in php/mysql which will have code snippets with live preview . So what should I used cloud or linux shared hosting. The server will hold lots of images and live preview code folders. So keeping all this in mind , what are your suggestions? Should I go for hostgator or AWS?
