clearweb-infrastructure 2013 KundenversionThe ClearWeb cluster is a highly redundant infrastructure for LAMP-Webhosting, Email and Groupware. It is entirely based on Ubuntu Linux and uses state-of-the-art loadbalancing and security techniques.

During testing we did benchmarks with up to 45000 requests per second and were able to ensure that the loading time for the average website (Joomla, Typo3, Drupal and WordPress) stays well below one second. Even under the heavy-load conditions.

All the services mentioned in this article are available from monday 3rd of march 2013. We request all customers to update their settings until march 30th. For further information regarding changes needed please visit the ClearWeb knowledge base in the support section of our homepage.

  1. Open the DNS-Domain in the Panel, note down all special settings (e.g. Home-IPs or servers not running with ClearWeb.
  2. Delete the DNS-Domain

  4. Change the DNS-Servers of your domain to ( and (
  5. You are done now, your users can change their settings fast and savely using autoconfiguration.

That was the title of the ninth CAOS Report. Frightening at first glance, the study considers it but found that OSS is a process in software development. This in turn is known, but what is behind it?

Open Source Business-Model: Aptana Cloud
This service provides SVN hosting, debugging, etc for PHP developers. Those who work with the Aptana PHP IDE can, there hosting its source and its applications. The service costs $ 0.04 per hour. So U.S. $ 350.40 per year. Compared with 3-year-old Zend license (€ 717th -, ~ CHF 1000 -.) + with 3 years PHP Hosting SSH (SVN soon available),Aptana costs so much alike. (for $ 350.40, there is a 5 GB Space, 10 GB for $ 876th -, 15 GB for $ 1,664.40, 25 GB for $ 3241.20 a year).

That anyone can download the IDE for free, makes nothing of it:

  • Aptana is based on Eclipse. OSS should have lowered the development costs significantly.
  • Users to verify their licenses eliminated, saving lawyers and lobbying costs.
  • The free distribution of interest is marketing, the advertising budget should be deeper.

Aptana is the best example that open source is not a business model, but many attractive business models allows only.
