you know about Kitely, the cloud-based hosting of OpenSim, and it is a brilliant endeavor headed up by two very passionate guys
and you know how cloud this and cloud that are barfed up all over the place, especially in the corporate world – i swear not a day goes by in my real world where i don’t hear how innovative we are for serving this and that up in the cloud =\
but there you go, i can’t escape it either and here i am blabbing about another cloud thing. face it, most of us are intrigued about the cloud because it sounds so cheap! =)
here’s a nifty service and i don’t really know what it means but it got my little cogs a turning:
it sounds like a pretty neat offering because it somehow makes deploying GitHub stuff easier. when i read GitHub i immediately thought of Crista Lopes’ D2 Ditribution of OpenSim
if you don’t know of her D2 Distro, it is what is used for sim-on-a-stick and is also an great way to set up a fully hypergriddable grid on your own machine
does using fluxflex (say that 5 times fast) mean that it would be pretty painless for any of us to host her OpenSim distribution on our own cloud server?
read this article to learn more (and maybe educate me, it’s just a tad over my head)
if it’s what i think it means, this could open up a huge opportunity for us average peeps to have our own grid online open to whoever we want and do so in a very economical manner that updates easily!
