Conclusion

For Development

In my opinion, for fastest developing machine, I choose Digitalocean (it has referal link), because so many os choices from ubuntu, centos, debian, arch linux and fedora. Pre-setting VM like LAMP Stack or with wordpress, snapshots and backups, web console, hourly pricing, easy to resize the vm (but cloudkilat do better, no need to restart because they use parallers, DO and SC use KVM), really great bandwidth. But You will need a faster internet connection, about 1 MB/s is good enough, you can remote your vm without any delay. You know Indonesia and New York is really far.

For Production

In my opinion, I will choose Cloudkilat. It really has good support (DO and SC better) but does not have a web console, they give swap as big as the memory (SimplerCloud better), great disk io (I will write in the next post). For Indonesian market, cloudkilat is the best for me (if you still in testing and a step away to move to bigger server), using latest technology it has no other competitor.

Closing Words

You can see all my screenshoot in galery below, the result I get maybe different with your test, you can test by yourself with my method. Maybe after you test by yourself, giving the test post link to me is great idea. Your opinion and my opinion can be different. Just choose the best for you.
