As much as i’d love for there to be CF hosting on Dreamhost, I don’t seem them doing it for two reasons:
There’s no way they can do it for free. If they use official Adobe CF Enterprise, we’re talking 3k per server. Say Dreamhost has 1000 servers; well that’s $3 million. If they offered a new, special hosting for it outside of their 4 main packages, that would make a lot more sense. Keep all the CFers together and all that. But that would pretty much go against the “simple but powerful” motto that Dreamhost seems to have.
The second reason would be because of how CF administration works. Unlike php, or ruby or python, CF really needs access to CF Administrator, a webpage where general CF settings are modified. Most the stuff in there isn’t essential, but at the very least there’d need to be a way to modify datasources. This would have to be replicated in the Dreamhost panel, which would be a little more custom scripting for them.
I guess I just think it’d be amazing and great if they did, or found some way to do so in a limited capacity, but full fledge adoption of CF isn’t happening without a ton of people signing up for it; like 3million$ worth of people…
