Salesforce Cloud Database for Sale
Amazon had a head start when it got into the cloud biz. It already had a massive server farm, along with e-commerce technology and other infrastructure. All it had to do was open all this up to other enterprises.
Saleforce.com is taking a similar tack. Its cloud CRM software is based on a database, which can be used for more than CRM. Salesforce.com is now positioning that database for general-purpose use, and the company says you can use multiple languages to build DBMS apps.
We should take this seriously -- Salesforce.com chief Marc Benioff cut his teeth at Oracle!
Does a Saleforce.com cloud database appeal to you, or do you fear subscription pricing and lack of control? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
