I have recently came across a very interesting platform http://www.mosso.com/

From the looks of it, it is an extremely user-friendly environment, and looks like is designed for small shops (local markets) and entrepreneurs/design companies who can place their clients on the system. For the price, the offering is very attractive. As if the industry entry cost just got down to $100.

What's your view on Mosso.com? Does it have enough muscle to do damage? I am not very "technical", so feature-wise, not really sure if they are missing on something important for "average" consumer.

Best,

With a company like Rackspace behind them, I think they do.

Good features but we already offer Linux/Windows to our customers so does that put us ahead of the game?

Could be. Are you backed by Rackspace know-how and infrastructure?

I still wonder why they are offering such a cheap package. Well, their control panel still lack of several features, but hey, it's RackSpace *superstructure* behind them, and that comes at a price.

Another company I can think of offering the same concept is Hostopia - BlueGenesis, and their packages are way more expensive.

And I can't help wondering whether they are targeting the right market. Not every web designer / reseller has the $100/month for their package, specially when there are several hosting providers offering cheap reseller packages. And, on the other hand, if you ask me, I wouldn't put a critical-mission web site on their platform because of two main reasons:

1. I wouldn't trust a critical-mission web site to a $100/mo provider.

2. Yes, they have a cluster, rock-solid network, several high availability configurations in place, etc, but it's still a shared environment and something could go wrong if one of your neighbors go wrong.

Even though, I think they have brilliant staff to make this venture succeed and I hope their business & marketing plan is as good as one can expect.

Just my thoughts about it.

Regards,

Jaime

Very cool idea - people who really care about their mission critical websites are bound to go for something like this. Very good find!

IMHO, just the opposite, as I previously said. I would never trust a mission critical web site or application to something like this. Hey, this is still a shared environment and someone else (another web site, I mean) might be able to screw up your uptime.

Jaime

I'm fairly certain that they have some resource usage measures in place to solve these kinds of problems. The one thing that I would be concerned about is DDoS attacks (which clusters don't fare well in defending themselves against)
