Everyone is talking about hybrid clouds, but few have seen them. This project aims to bring something that can fall under the designation „hybrid cloud“ to the smallest businesses, which are running their web server built of commodity hardware at the office on an unreliable internet line. This setup is very cheap. If the server is reasonably loaded, it is cheaper than the public cloud. However to bring high availability, you’d have to double your investment.
If the projects succeeds, even small companies will be able to afford 99.9% uptime through the use of a public cloud cold-standby server.
