I created a machine instance today morning at around 10 AM and now at 10 PM after 12 hours , I get an email notifying me about the Windows VM I had created in the morning along with the access password. This is not the first instance, This is the way the instance creation notification seems to be working for me in my observation so far. Initially, when I got such notifications I was wondering, if some one else had logged in to my account and started services, when I got emails so much delayed!?
In Rackspace cloud, just to compare similar notifications take 5 – 10 minutes max. and they are pretty much deterministic.
Instacompute’s services should fix this and improve the services significantly.
