The main difference: a test drive allows you to check out — and customize, if you're inclined — any application on our system, with full functionality, at no charge, for as long as you like. Your use is subject to time limitations — specifically, we'll shut down your application after 3 hours, unless you tell us to keep it running. We pay for your test drive server time, so we try to limit that for inactive applications.
At a glance, yes. But they provide benefits such as instant and practically infinite scalability, pay-as-you-go-pricing, and more, that may save you money and time in the long run. Standing Cloud is able to offer the benefits of cloud hosting at prices similar to hosting costs you’re familiar with — with additional benefits, like automatic failover support, continuous monitoring, and more.
See the Solutions section for details.
Today, you can only do this if it is the same application; which is useful primarily for solution providers who are serving multiple clients with a single application, like Wordpress or Drupal. In the near future, we'll support multiple applications in mixed deployments sharing bandwidth, storage, and computing resources.
In simplest terms, we charge you on an application-per-month basis. For example, if you deploy vTiger CRM, your cost is $14.95 per month, regardless of the number of users. This price is all-inclusive, with bandwidth and storage limits that are sufficient for normal usage. If you need more bandwidth, storage, or computing horsepower, we offer higher limits and more resources at a higher price - but it is still an all-inclusive, monthly charge.
Be careful when evaluating uptime claims and guarantees. From the perspective of a host and its SLA, downtime means that the server is down or their entire network is inaccessible. From a user's perspective, this is just one aspect of downtime. Your applications are also down when the server is responding slowly, your application stops working for some reason, there is planned maintenance or other such circumstances. Standing Cloud's unique approach to cross-cloud hosting effectively eliminates that risk.
When it comes to application upgrades, Standing Cloud hosting clients enjoy a unique combination of ease and full control. For any type of upgrade, you have the option of automatic or manual upgrades. For the operating system and technology stack (e.g., database or web server) upgrades, we simply back up and restore your application — our system is designed so that the application is fully portable with respect to changes of this kind.
The chief difference is that all our applications are ready to use, directly from the Application Network, either as a free test drive or as a full hosted solution. There are many application directories that list applications and invite you to visit the vendor or other sites to get started, with varying requirements; for example, you may be encouraged to schedule a demo, or call a sales rep. With ours, you’re a couple of minutes and few clicks away from full use, no further sites — or sales pitches — required.
The Application Network is our catalog of supported open source and commercial applications, offered as a resource for customers to learn about and immediately begin using the tools they need. You’ll find solutions for virtually any business or technical issue, along with a listing of “solution providers” who can help you customize and manage the application(s) you choose.
Soon we’ll feature application “bundles” — combinations of applications that are commonly used in tandem to address business needs.
Absolutely. We have over 80 open source apps to choose from, and you can host as many of them as you like, in any combination. Today, with some exceptions, application combinations can’t share the same server, but shortly, that limitation will be lifted.
