        Review ofGoogle Compute EngineGoogle Compute Engine
        • I use Google Compute Engine instances as flexible, reproducible infrastructure that scale with my data science tasks.

        • Between Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services, I chose Google Cloud for its intuitive UI. SSH within the browser is very convenient.

        Review ofRackspace Cloud ServersRackspace Cloud Servers

        Rackspace plays nice with Windows Server 2013. It is the most customizable platform I have worked with so far and the closest to running a private server. The dev tools are great and if you want to work in a familiar environment with as much customizability as you want this is the right server for you.
