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 overallocation. You are also the root user, as you are with a dedicated server. Public Cloud incorporates hourly billing and a number of features such as the ability to add resources without reinstalling.
