Jeeves Information Systems has Valentine Plone hosting
Plone is the best open source CMS
Recently several cheap Plone hosting alternatives have made their way out on the market, and one of the better we like is Ploud, which is incredible fast and beautiful. We may start our own soon, just need to talk to Alan about licensing the code first :) There are manyPlone hosting providers listed, and starting yesterday we are one too! We now host the Plone sites of Jeeves Information Systems. Our hosting is, for now, aimed for customers who want a full Plone service provider.
Plone hosting to scale
Our hosting is a mix of normal servers and cloud based on Amazon. You as a customer can decide how much you need in order to have your site up and going. We combine the cloud option with normal hosting so you can get extra resources when you need them. Our servers are spread all over the world and located in different data centers by several different companies. This way we can make sure that we always have some servers up somewhere. For more information contact Sasha Vincic.
Is cheap Plone hosting what Plone needs?
Cheap Plone hosting will attract new types of users. Plone's upgrade history hasn't been pretty, as most Plone sites are large and have a lot of custom code. This is a problem that also exists in Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress and other systems that are growing; but in controlled environment like Ploud.com and Wordpress.com users get a great experience since the hoster controls what is available. We think this is a good way of showing users what is available and making them start using Plone. Maybe we'll start our own Ploud :) We might if it will benefit Plone and the community.
