OK. If you haven’t read my previous post where MOSSO blew my mind, go read it now. Then be prepared to be REALLY blown away.
I said I could create one domain that runs Windows and another that runs Linux – all on the same account.
I said I could run Windows with MS SQL or with MySQL.
I said I could run Windows and Ruby on Rails, or Linux and Ruby on Rails.
All of that amazed me.
But I had NO IDEA that I could run, ON ONE DOMAIN .Net, PHP, MySQL, and MS SQL. I didn’t realize that my .Net app could talk to my MySQL database AND my MS SQL database. Or that my PHP app could talk to my MySQL and MS SQL databases.
That my Linux apps could talk to my Windows databases. And vise-versa.
All on the same domain.
All on the same domain!
I didn’t realize how many choices I had, and how many ways I could serve my clients all on one box – regardless of the application, database, Operating System, etc.
I honestly need to sit and think for a while because I have no clue how all of this can be true. Just thinking about the back end that serves this is making my head spin a little bit. The front-end – the part *I* work with is just DROP DEAD EASY.
I’ve got a feeling the back end is a bit more complex 🙂
The back end is where the BMVS (Black Magic Voodoo Shit) happens. And it is some serious magic.
In my F.A.Q. page I say DesqView X is my favorite software ever. Because it was magic.
But I think I need to update my F.A.Q. now. MOSSO is making my head spin.
It honestly seems impossible.
And if I would not have been lucky enough to just talk to one of the inventors of the technology I probably still wouldn’t believe it.
My brain must rest.
Amazing. After being at Rackspace all day yesterday, and visiting their new site the day before, I was already wondering if I shouldn’t just go work for them. Rackspace is an amazing company.
But now I know. If I leave consulting, I am applying at MOSSO.
It is that freaking cool.
