Media Temple Hosting

Hi there,

Does anyone use the Media Temple Grid-Service? I’m about to host my
radiant sate there and I’d like to know if I go with the 64MB (memory)
container or the 256MB container?

Any tip?

Be Radinat!

I’m hosting a site on a 64mb container an have had major problems with
it. Media temple has had major DNS problems internally over the past few
months causing the internal services to completely stop functioning
every once in a while. I wouldn’t recommend it. You would probably be
better off with Slicehost.

Like John, I’m also hosting a site on a 64MB RoR container on Media
Temple. Unlike him, I haven’t had any problems so far. With
regards to what container you should choose, this is an printout of
memory
status on the site being hosted on Media Temple (done with ‘mtr
status’):

applications:
radiant:

status: running

memory:
free: 30744
total: 65536
used: 34792

Given the limited information you’ve given us, Gabriel, I don’t see why
the
64MB container would not suffice for your needs provided that you’re
only
going to run a standard Radiant-install there. John also mentions
Slicehost,
which is a nice option if you have linux experience and/or the will to
learn
it as you go along.

I guess this is the point where I should mention that I’m looking for
alternatives to Media Temple. But the reason I’m leaving them hasn’t
anything to do with the RoR container.
