I'm looking for options (besides Amazon EC2 instances, and DigitalOcean) for "cheap" *high performance* computing rentals. If someone has ideas, or better yet is renting online compute capability I'm way to pay a significant BTC bounty for this. Just pointing me to a good service that accepts Bitcoin (ideally) would be worth a bounty.

I take it that ec2 is simply too complex for you? (Their payment system is almost impossible to calculate beforehand). If you need something much more simple you can get a vps, cheaper than a dedicated server. If your after a service that's simple and great or amazing to use, heroku provides that. They take away the pain of having to deal with any servers, you upload your code and specify how much computing power you will need by ramping up the "dynos" on your project. 1 dyno = ~512mb vps. They let you use 1 dyno per project free in the free tier. Only bad thing about them is they don't support a wide range of languages/programs, and their routing is bit a questionable but not too bad. I use them for loads a project, specifically node.js projects.

1&1 is one of the most horrible places to buy hosting from. For my hosting services i provide i use servers from various providers. ill pm you the providers i use. It depends on what kind of hosting your looking for really. Most places that accept bitcoin, like my hosting services are new to it or are a young company. you can research a lot of big companies on http://www.webhostingtalk.com/

Well its not what the offer thats bad its the service, tech support, etc. its kind of like godaddy, and hostgator. on sites like webhostingtalk.com where its just a forum devoted to hosting services discussion 1&1, hostgator, godaddy, and main hosts like that. no1 their would use it. There is crap loads of reviews. Now i cannot say anything bad about the could hosting but i used webhosting and domain services from them before i made my own webhost. it was horrible for me.

Nope, not complex. I have an automated setup to kick-off processes on 50-500 instances simultaneously. What I'm looking for is something that is less expensive than EC2. It might be they are as cheap as it comes, but I figured I'd ask the community on this and see where it goes.
