SpotCloud is a "cloud capacity clearinghouse," a "spot market" for cloud computing capacity. Want to deploy an on-demand server instance to test or tinker with something? SpotCloud will sell you pre-configured Linux or Windows "virtual machine (VM) packages" with defined profiles and capacities, by the hour, and let you pay as you go. Got extra server capacity? SpotCloud will help you sell access to it. A kind-of brokerage for infrastructure as a service (IaaS) on demand.
SpotCloud is powered by the Enomaly Elastic Computing Platform (ECP), a field-proven turn-key platform for delivery (and monetization) of cloud-based computing services. SpotCloud is built on the Google App Engine for low-cost global scalability. Support for other cloud platforms is coming soon, according to the company.
