Pogoapp: PaaS hosting startup by a couple Mefites
We started out as Rails developers trying to script capistrano deployments and somehow ended up hacking together a full platform-as-a-service
system, run on dedicated servers, with S3-compatible distributed storage
and a REST API/build process that's mostly heroku-compatible
). We've got support for Ruby 1.9.3 and 2.0 preview including Rails, node.js/CoffeeScript, python, php, etc etc.
We've just begun to expand beyond running our own apps and those of a few of our friends and clients, handing out free trial accounts to a small number of the people on our mailing list, but if anyone reading wants one, just memail me with your email address and I'll set you one up right away.
We'd love to get some feedback on the whole shebang, from the service, website, documentation, any specific features you might be dying to have, etc etc. We're also, if/when there's more than two of us, intending to run this as a non-traditional tech startup (i.e. employee managed, socially conscious), so if anyone has experience with anything along those lines we'd love to pick your brain!
