A simple analogy we have been using is that of the auto industry. Let's assume you are traveling to a new city for a day and need a car. Not a good move to purchase or lease a car since you are not making a long term commitment. The reverse is true, if you need a car for the long term, renting from Avis is not a cost-effective way to gain the use of a car.

Over the past few months we have been busy putting the finishing touches on our cloud computing platform. Rather than taking the usual technology approach and announcing the platform when it was ready, we decided to take a more agile service development approach by engaging with existing customers and prospects and evolving the platform with their input. So today, we are announcing both the general availability of our cloud platform, which we call Carpathia InstantOn™ and discussing the solutions we have built for real customers. We believe this approach has led to something rather special.
