On last Servoy World, one main theme in the keynote, regarding the future path of Servoy, was about PaaS (Platform as a Service).
Microsoft was also at Servoy World and talked about Azure.
Today I compared the price lists of a dedicated server hosting company (Host Europe) and Azure, and found that Azure is way more pricey, when you just compare RAM, core numbers and size of the disk.
(Please excuse when I compared apples with pears in your opinion.)
But I wonder in case Servoy goes very close (maybe exclusive) towards Azure as its platform, that hosting our solutions on an integrated Servoy-PaaS-platform would be quite costly, and therefore no more competitive.
However it would certainly be nice when the setup of a new server with our own solutions would just be a matter of minutes.
But I would like to suggest that also regarding PaaS, Servoy stays independent of any vendor.
