I've heard good things about Brightbox. Do they have a cloud solution ?

> Hello, a quick question on this sunny autumnal morning. A client of
> ours is looking to move their Rails app into the cloud both for future
> scalability and redundancy reasons (the recent 20 minute outage due to
> their current host's network issues being the proximate cause).
> Can anyone recommend, or recommend avoiding, any virtualised
> platforms? I'm aware of Engine Yard and Heroku (both of which are EC2
> based I believe), and it seems Rackspace has a product now too. We've
> used Joyent in the past but found their customer service pretty
> woeful. The client's budget is £250/US$400 per month; a managed
> solution would be preferable if budget allows.
> Thanks for any tips!
> Cheers,
