Mosso Launches CloudFS Storage Service


Mosso, an on demand hosting start-up is embracing Cloud Computing with open arms, and today launched the beta of CloudFS, a new web-based storage offering that will compete with Amazon’s S3. Mosso plans to charge $0.15 per gigabyte, and will remain in beta till end of third quarter.



I couldn’t agree more with what Andrew Mitry said. We recently switched and while their prices are cheap and their concept is awesome – try getting scale-out ASP.NET and MS SQL for that price anywhere else – they are down all the time. Just while I was reading this, in fact, I got an email from my monitoring service at SiteUpTime that one of my sites was down. And it is still as I finish writing this. If Mosso doesn’t learn how to manage clusters better, we’re leaving.

We tried Mosso out for a while about a year and a half ago, we were not impressed – frequents outages, performance and MySQL db connectivity issues. They responded relatively quickly but outages were too frequent to justify staying with them.
