IBM i in cloud: “trick or treat…?” – PART 1

I tried to have a look around the sites that are hosting providers, trying to understand services, prices, service level and so on. The work was very hard because most of their don’t show clearly prices, term and conditions but remind to a form for requiring more info.

At the last I prepared this list.  I hope I could enrich it with your suggestions/corrections or with new hosting providers.
