Your new development environment just a credit card number away

11 06 2007

A very interesting idea today for the short-lived projects that come up now and then. It is easy nowadays to get some server space including a lot of tools to run on that space. Mostly open source tools and therefore free of license costs (yes, there is a support cost, I know). One tool you do not think of in most of these cases is Oracle XE. And it seems most suppliers of server space have not thought about it either. But it can be found. So why not use it for your next proof of concept project?

I kind of like the idea. It must be cheaper than renting the hardware and install everything else  you need, just for a short period.
