Why choose Public Cloud instances?

Public Cloud instances (virtual servers) combine flexibility and guaranteed resources. In under a minute, you get CPU, RAM and storage with no resource over-allocation. You are also the root user, as you would be with a dedicated server. Public Cloud provides hourly billing and a number of features such as the ability to add resources without having to reinstall. The OpenStack API lets you automate your infrastructure.
