Hi guys,

Our decision to leave Amazon grid computing framework isn't only to  
save money even that saving
money isn't too bad when you've thousands of Amazon medium/big images  
running 24/7, exchanging
huge number of messages per day.

Some of our clients simply don't like SaaS stuffs at all. So, we MUST  
change for them
because they want full control on their business data from A to Z  
(most of time due to confidentiality reasons).

Joe Weinman from AT&T wrote a nice post about that:

cheers
Y.
