SpotCloud Update (Free ECP SpotCloud Edition & Webinar)

It's been a crazy week at Enomaly after last week’s SpotCloud announcement. We'd like to take a brief moment to update you on some new and exciting opportunities that have emerged out of our discussions around the SpotCloud Marketplace (

Buyer / Seller Traction
Signups for both the buy and sell side for SpotCloud have been very strong with hundreds registering for the service. One of the more interesting statistics is the ratio of buyers to sellers is tracking at 5:1 for buyers. This shows there’s a lot of buy-side demand for the service. For those of you who have already registered, we are selectively adding new buyers and sellers while we work through the beta phase, so hold tight, we haven't forgotten about you. If you haven't registered yet, go ahead and add yourself today.  

Announcing the Free Enomaly ECP SpotCloud Edition
We're happy to announce that we are now offering a Free Enomaly ECP SpotCloud Edition (Shipping next week). This is a feature-limited version of the Enomaly Elastic Computing Platform specifically tailored for cloud providers, as well as private and public data centers looking to sell excess capacity on the SpotCloud market. By simply installing ECP SpotCloud edition on a few spare servers, providers are able to easily participate in the marketplace. No public cloud or payment systems are required. Just a few servers and the Free ECP SpotCloud IaaS software and you're ready to start making money. To get access to the ECP SpotCloud Beta, simply register as a seller at and check the box for the ECP SpotCloud edition. 

Third Party IaaS / Cloud Platform Support 
Due to strong demand from non ECP-based, cloud providers and IaaS platforms, we have decided to open up our marketplace to any and all platforms. In the next week we will publish seller integration instructions for the SpotCloud marketplace so platforms powered by other technologies can easily participate . If you haven't already done so, please sign up to be notified when the docs are ready. 

Joint Marketing and PR Opportunity
Responses to our initial SpotCloud announcement has been overwhelming. A number of buyers and sellers have indicated they would like to participate in a broader announcement highlighting our partners. If you'd like to participate in our upcoming PR announcement, please feel free to get in touch with us.
