Fuga OpenStack for software development

Why use a public cloud as a software developer?

Software developers build applications, websites, web shops and platforms for their clients. For these applications and web shops, a hosting solution is needed as well. Software developers often use a (managed) hosting provider to host these applications, their clients becoming direct customers of the hosting provider. To the client, however, it’s not always clear for which issues they need to contact the developer and which the hosting provider. Often, these clients would prefer a one-stop-shop for both application development and hosting of the platform. Having a single point of contact is much easier for customers. They don’t have to worry about contacting the right party in case of trouble with their application. Whether it’s a software or hosting problem, they can contact the same organization in order to solve it.

If a software developer has the technical expertise to manage their own hosting platform, they may decide to create and offer their own hosting solutions for their clients. This has four additional advantages:

  1. It is easier and clearer for both the developer and his clients, because they are fully in control over the whole project; from the development phase to the production phase.
  2. It speeds up processes for both you and your clients, because you don’t have to contact the hosting provider for small changes, you can just do them yourself.
  3. It is very flexible to take care of your own hosting, because it’s scalable. You can adjust your hosting easily to your business results.
  4. You can get a business advantage out of it, because you will also earn money by hosting the developed application. Besides project-based income, you’ll also have a steady, monthly income.

“The thought behind the Fuga Cloud platform is very similar to what Amazon offers, but at much lower costs.”
