CopperEgg vs Scalr: What are the differences?
What is CopperEgg? Cloud monitoring for your servers, websites, processes, and web applications. Continuous visibility and cloud monitoring for all your servers – hosted or private, Linux or Windows. Works great with Amazon EC2, Rackspace, or any public or private cloud.
What is Scalr? Scalr is cloud management software for public & private infrastructure. Scalr is not an infrastructure provider or reseller. The infrastructure you deploy on is yours: you give us the keys to your infrastructure cloud so we can make the API calls to the provider on your behalf and so we can also rev up or power down servers for you. When traffic piles up, Scalr detects the increased load, commissions new servers for you from the cloud, and then spreads the load. When using Scalr ConfigTemplates, you can easily make configuration changes for services such as MySQL and Apache. Scalr does the heavy work, pushing those changes out to your servers.
CopperEgg and Scalr can be categorized as "Cloud Management" tools.

It really is possible with CopperEgg to just do that. The setup process takes around a minute and you can benefit from results instantly.
By far, at least for me, the favorite feature I've used is comparison of current servers with what they should like if they would run in AWS.
Their support is awesome and really really fast and I don't really have any complaints about their service so far.
Disclosure: I'm not affiliated with them but I do like their service.
