A quick draft with results for my RunAbove Cloud Sandbox. The description of the RunAbove service is as follows:
For developer, by developers.
RunAbove has been created by the OVH Group. We want to change the way you look at Cloud Computing Services.
Based on a new vision of Cloud Computing Services, RunAbove is the first mono-slot provider in the world.
We focus on ensuring the best performance in terms of I/O, network throughput, CPU and RAM.
RunAbove aims to provide a cloud infrastructure powerful and transparent, for developers all over the world so they can focus on their work by relying on unshakable resources.
RunAbove is a $10 million investment
The ‘Cloud Sandbox’ instances have no SLA (last time I checked) but my experience since I signed up has been stable and the network has been good as well. I also have a Power8 instance, but have not had any time to play with it much – not yet!

That’s it for now. As with any other provider, one must give it several months before reaching a conclusion. But if you wish to give RunAbove a test, go ahead. I have not been disappointed by anything so far!
