Hi James,

I'm interested in using a GaaS solution.
But... I'm only starting with Smalltalk. I have developed some business reporting tools that I look to provide in the cloud.
I develop in VW in one my jobs and look to port some of my previous projects (developed in Python) to Smalltalk. And a GaaS would be great.

I'm happy to test your platform. Any AWS location is fine.

[In response to a question on the Pharo mailing list…]

My ESUG presentation (based on recent screencasts at
<https://www.youtube.com/user/JamesGFoster/videos>) culminated with a live
hands-on opportunity for people to connect to a cloud-hosted GemStone/S 64
Bit 3.4.2 server. As I expected, the question came up of future prospects
for a real GaaS offering. So far I’m not aware of anyone with official plans
in this space, but I’m personally interested in exploring the idea. 

Two questions arise from the point-of-view of any potential provider: (1)
what is the demand; and (2) what would it look like from an operational
perspective. So, in order to better answer those questions I’d like to get
in touch with people who would like to try out a GaaS solution. If I provide
a dev/test environment for 45 days, will you will give me feedback? If you
are interested, please respond privately with (a) your GemStone/S version
(preferably 3.4.2), (b) the size of your repository (preferable less than 32
GB, ideally 8 GB or less), (c) what client IDE you use to interact with
GemStone, and (d) a sorted list of preferred/acceptable server locations
(from Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, New York, San Francisco, and Toronto).
