Poll - 1st half of 2012 (EU and Asia)

Poll - 1st half of 2012 (EU and Asia)

edited July 2012 in Providers

I know that there was a poll recently (made by @liam) but I want to try something different. There is a lot of questions about best providers in specific location or technology so ... ... please put only one provider name in each category (you can choose only few categories if you want)

Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - EU West (KVM) Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - EU East (KVM) Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - Asia (KVM)

Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - EU West (OpenVZ) Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - EU East (OpenVZ) Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - Asia (OpenVZ)

Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - EU West (Xen/VMWare/Other) Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - EU East (Xen/VMWare/Other) Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - Asia (Xen/VMWare/Other)

Poll will be closed on 2012-07-09 00:00 UTC

I will draw one person - prize: 1 month of EDIS KVM Smart. Note: For draw purposes I will merge votes from both topics (US and EU/Asia)

Rules (similar to @liam's poll)

  • You have to be active user >= 30 days
  • You can't vote for your company.
  • One entry per person
  • You plan has to be within the <$7 limit

Please feel free to PM me in case of questions

Update: limited to EU and Asia, there is another poll for US

    I assume gray - west, orange - east

    I would say though that Graz and Vienna is probably 'east'. But I'll stick with your map.

    That's too many categories (I'm not going to even bother), should've had just three, US, EU and Asia, or two, if you for some reason exclude the US.

    Also funny how Germany is an Eastern Europe country for some.

  • Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - EU West (KVM): prometeus Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - EU East (KVM): GetKVM (I'm just considering Germany as East so I can vote for GetKVM)

  • @liam said: True, I'd say Everything past Austria is east then.

    No!!!! Meh whatever I'm voting for Prometeus and GetKVM regardless! insert evil sinister laugh here

    Catalyst Host - Pie Approved!
  • @rm_ - it's old map with separate East and West Germany - let's assume that right now Germany is West Europe

  • @HalfEatenPie said: Best provider in 1st half of 2012 - EU East (KVM): GetKVM (I'm just considering Germany as East so I can vote for GetKVM)

    Thank you <3

    Question, who are the providers in Asia?

  • @liam said: I would say though that Graz and Vienna is probably 'east'. But I'll stick with your map.

    By location: Partly. By culture: No, certainly not.

    Opinions/Posts are to be assumed my own/personal and not company related unless obvious - Content is protected by free speech laws in the US (where LET is hosted) and Austria (where i live). Working @ EDIS and owning some others.

    I meant geography wise... I guess Austria is technicially 'West' as that was the furthest West allie during the cold war.

    But if Finland is in western Europe, so Estonian is also, because it located southern side of Finland.

    The East/West Europe division is (was) mostly political, not so much geographical.

    Hah, so tiny Europe gets divided in two for the purpose of this poll but our country which is made up of 1 country gets clumped in together with our stretching all the way up to Japan. Crazy!

  • @Oliver - how many LEB providers do you have in Europe and how many in Australia? If you really want I can create separate category but I'm sure that there will be 2 maybe 3 providers listed

  • OliverOliver Member

    Haha mate I am not really being serious. I am pretty sure I'm the only one running a business who has ever offered a LEB deal here in Australia anyway. ;-)

    Nordic countries are considered as western countries mostly because political and economic reasons but how can you seriously consider Estonia (ex soviet union) as western european country? :)

    image

    Eastern europe start with Slavic countries (Poland, Czech, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia..) goes up to baltic countries (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) and down to hellenic Greece. If you take meridian over Finland as representative then we would cosider as western europe also countries as Belarus, Ukraine, Romania... but things don't work that way in real world :)
