I just saw this announcement which talks about how Carpathia Hosting is looking to provide an “Integrated Hosting Package” which to me, means “Cloud Stack” of apps and services – including SugarCRM.
This is yet another testament to what the Cloud should be about – interoperability, flexibility and portability. No one wants their cloud enviornment to be proprietary and fixed. That sucks.
Rather, people need to be able to get up and running fast, and develop anytime, anywhere without worrying about the longevity of their code.
The cool thing is, I have never heard of Carpathia Hosting before coming across this article. The Cloud is going to offer up a lot of opportunities for players of all sizes to make an impact, and make some money. In this economy, that is some great news.
