What does Media Temple do well? Media Temple is one of the oldest buddies in the hosting game. Through the years the have always been ahead creating solutions for marketing agencies and creative people. Their solutions have in mind both personal and agency needs. Their packages are pretty affordable and the performance is great.
What does Media Temple not do well? We are very comfortable with MT. The only thing that have changed over the years while they grew and were acquired by GoDaddy is that the support guys involvement just reduces to the minimum expected. Previously there use to be fanatic tech guys who would go the extra mile to solve you issues, not any more.
What do you wish you had known about Media Temple before using? I wish I had known they have not only GRID solutions which includes almost everything you may need (including Google Suite products) but also bigger solutions.
Have you used a competitor to Media Temple? If so, how does it compare? For bigger and more intensive projects we tend to use Pagely, Rackspace or AWS. But for small and medium projects we have been using MT for more than 10 years and we are more than happy with the results.
