Feature Value Comment
UI Friendliness 

Stallion does not include cpu or memory metrics, no charts contrarily to what's advertised on the main website.

Quality of Service 

BuyVM uses a reseller for hosting its VMs (FranTech). The buying experience involved checking out and paying through the reseller. Then to manage the VM you're going back to on the Stallion interface. Another set of credentials is needed for Stallion that are sent you through email.

User picked password is sent back to the user in an email.
