OK, this solution basically is at the Dedicated Hosting end of the
spectrum: you basically get a virtual computer in the cloud. Amazon
EC2 style, say. The good news you can do everything. The bad news is
that you have to! All the good/bad/ugly of root.
But simpler Shared Hosting is at the other end of the spectrum: They
give you a set of services (LAMP basically) and some easily
installable and updatable content management systems (Blogs, Forums,
Wikis, CVS/SVN/GIT, and so on) .. and naturally email. They include
ssh and install-it-yourself capabilities as long as you don't have to
be root. Joyent's shared is a good example.
New specialized hosting, for web apps, are appearing too: Google App
Engine and Joyent's Aptana partnership. Extremely programmer
friendly. And Google has just introduced Java into the offering.
Slice host is a root sorta critter and I think is more at the
So what I'd be interested in is seaside hosted in the easier end:
either on a webapp provider like GAE and Aptana, or a Shared provider.
The coolest solution for me would be a seaside using the JVM rather
than the usual smalltalk VM. This would potentially get seaside on
GAE. That would rock!
