I came across Cloudnumbers.com . Awesome name , I didnt know groovy domain names existed anymore.
What is cloudnumbers.com – The website which looks like the salesforce.com website in style and design-
Things are still very raw here- but its an awesome concept. With 68 GB of Memory, I am sure R can blow away everything out of the water.
Probably the competition needs to ahem launch that private cloud soon, before they lose the momentum.
and you Get 2GB of storage, 2GB of traffic and 10h computation cost per month for free! I think this German startup has hit the nail on the head and it would be interesting to see what the future holds.
