PharoCloud drops VM hosting and focuses on Ephemeric Cloud

mikefilonov
Hello,

I just wanted to make some clarifications on what is going on with PharoCloud and how I see the future of the project.

PharoCloud is not closing, but just dropping VM hosting support. We will continue to develop and maintain Ephemeric Cloud which allows you to publish Pharo web applications online much easier than any other VM hosting can offer. In some way PharoCloud just becomes more "cloudy" by dropping outdated technologies off :)

Our plan is to make the project more community oriented. We integrated PharoCloud with Pharo.org SSO and provide FREE access to all Pharo Association members. You are welcome to log in to the cloud with your Pharo Association account at:

https://www.pharocloud.com/manager/connect

We are encouraging you to migrate your applications hosted as Pharocloud VMs to the Ephemeric Cloud. It is much more simple! We have some positive experience already. There are some examples I moved from VM hosting to Ephemeric Cloud:

http://seaside31.swarm.pharocloud.com/
http://eph-b147b6e2.swarm.pharocloud.com/
http://smalltalk.mikefilonov.ru/

Here you can find a quick start guide to Ephemeric cloud and some tips on how to publish your app: http://docs.swarm.pharocloud.com/article/getting_started

Also there is a REST API you can use to manage the cloud. And there is also a Pharo wrapper around the REST-API:
http://docs.swarm.pharocloud.com/article/pharo_library_reference

We also have video guides:

Thanks for the clarification Mike.
 

Our plan is to make the project more community oriented. We integrated
PharoCloud with Pharo.org SSO and provide *FREE* access to all *Pharo
Association* members.

You should remind us of this more often, maybe once a month.  Its a great offer, but I'm not ready right now to try it, and in a few months I'll have forgotten.
Or better, the Association should post here a monthly promotion flyer/newletter that lists deals like this.  

cheers -ben

Hi Mike.

Do you plan to support custom ports?
It would be very interesting to support remote development. Imaging EphemericInstance will able to open browser, playground and debugger.

I have a feeling that I miss something.
As far as I remember, Ephemerics have no possibility to store anything permanently.
So is it for static applications only?
