You may remember Etelos CRM was one of the first CRM packages for Google Apps.
Now Etelos introduces Virtual Server Environments.
In the past , you would have to go with a hosting provider like GoDaddy or Megahosters and purchase either a virtual or virtual dedicated server environment.
The prices range anywhere from $45 to $149 per month, depending on who you choose and the “base” package.
If you need an environment right away, and don’t have time to install the base OS or applications, then Etelos may be worth looking into.
For my needs, I would use a LAMP environment: Open source Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP and Perl are my essentials for my toolkit.
With Etelos, the basic price is “only” $7.95 (includes 128MB Memory, 5 GB Disk space, 15 GB bandwidth) but the $29.95 environment is more realistic (256MB Memory, 10 GB Disk space, 30 GB bandwidth).
They also have other platforms including Django, Ruby on Rails, Mono, Tomcat JAVA, and JBoss.
Here is the full press release announced yesterday:
Etelos announces six new virtual server environments available on demand from the Etelos Marketplace
Etelos announces virtual servers deployed on demand from your shopping cart
San Mateo, Calif. — Etelos, Inc. today debuts Etelos Virtual Environments™, virtual server environments available with six common Web development frameworks. These virtual environments provide quick-start platforms Django, Ruby on Rails, Mono, Tomcat JAVA, JBoss and LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) and are now available through on-demand installations on the Etelos Marketplace™.
The Etelos Marketplace offers a growing list of applications that are practical to everyday business users. With the addition of Etelos VEs, businesses and developers alike have the benefit of clicking a few links and having new computing resources available to solve their business problems.
Unlike conventional server installations, users can go to the Etelos Marketplace, add a virtual server environment to their cart and check out. The Etelos Marketplace works with the Etelos Web app distribution framework to deliver and install the applications in real time across the network within minutes. This gives users an immediate benefit without the traditional frustration or overhead associated with deploying a server or a Web app.
For the software manufacturer wanting to distribute a Web App in a SaaS model, Etelos VEs give them even more freedom and flexibility to accomplish just that. Developers can submit their app for re-distribution through the Etelos Marketplace and benefit from the simplicity and scalability of the growing distribution platform.
“We are excited to be able to offer businesses and developers more choices in how they need to accomplish their business objectives,” said Danny Kolke, Etelos Founder and CEO. “Etelos VEs are a great addition to our Web app distribution platform. They give developers more opportunities to focus on the fundamentals of building a quality app and not worrying so much about all the details to distribute it.”
Introductory pricing for these solutions ranges from $7.95 to $239.95 a month for a dedicated instance that is available 24/7. Packages vary based upon memory, disk space and bandwidth required.
Etelos has created the ability for developers to migrate their application to these environments and submit for distribution through the Etelos Marketplace.
“This is the future of Web app distribution,” Kolke said. “Delivering Web apps for businesses and a distribution platform for software manufacturers.”
Current technologies supported through the Etelos Virtual Environments include Django, Ruby on Rails, Mono, Tomcat JAVA, JBoss and LAMP.
