Free or low-end kick-ass cloud hosting alternative to PHP Fog/App Fog

As PHP Fog and App Fog do not have a persistent file system it's hard to deploy my current applications with them. I am looking for a similar cloud hosting service with tight budget.

    Yes and there are the problems i could read online about AppFog

    • Confirmed: You can't buy more storage (yet). It's a priority for them, though.
    • An app's instances don't all see the same copy of the filesystem. That's less of a problem than the fact that:
    • Your writable filesystem isn't persistent. AppFog recommend it be devoted strictly to * your codebase, with any static assets being placed on something like S3.
    • Confirmed: They don't provide cron. I attempted to use web2py cron in my AppFog app, but I can't make it work. I haven't tried very hard to figure out why.

    Their roadmap states persistent file storage as their top priority

    heroku is pretty sweet, not sure if they're "persistant" filesystems. probably not, as it runs on aws. look into just setting up a LEB / linode or something.
