Hey guys, it's always a good surprise to see a discussion about your work when you woke up. Thanks for your words Richard, it touches me deeply.

In fact I completely agree with Dominique, hosting is not for everyone because it requires economy of scale so you can fund the time needed to learn the skills and build your infrastructure. I only provide tools, but behind you still need to have the right people to handle them.

It's funny to see a discussion about Clouder while I am writing a blog post about the next step. You can expect some news, hopefully later in the week.

yes, your recommendation is wise. There are few proven multi-tenant
solutions maintained over time available and able to manage a
reasonable number of contracts. I don't know how many environments are
in production under clouder yet, but it is the most elaborated
solution for a flexible solution.
Nevertheless, despite what claims, you
cannot get a robust infrastructure if it is managed by a weak
administrator. The most important point here for a new Saas player is
to learn how it works and master any detail of the life cycle before
committing to host customers' data for years. Developers often
underestimate how long term admin is specific.
Several proven Odoo integrators sub-contract their OEM Saas farms to
SISalp, I guess I'm not alone providing this service. I'm often
surprised to see so many new Saas offerings on the net made by
complete beginners on Odoo.
