For app providers we will offer Solid POD hosting as a service for their users. The quality and reliability of a service is essential for the acceptance of Solid as a platform. Our spot.POD backend is based on the open-source Trellis project and battle-proven enterprise Java and Scala technologies. The architecture has exceptional scalability and fault tolerance properties, which are central for internet applications exposed to a wide audience.
We are currently in the midst of preparing a first test-phase and invite interested application providers or open source projects to collaborate. We’ll be happy to get any feedback from the community, just contact us under email@example.com. In the near future we are going to publish benchmarks results of the tests we’ll perform. Stay tuned!
We acknowledge the value of the open-source movement. We commit us to contribute to the community and will support non-profit projects in our business model.
