I have been using FarCry for a long time. My team finally has reached a critical mass where we are starting to outline some projects we hope to complete in 2016 that we can contribute back to the Community.
That being said, I wanted to ask the community about the way they talk about deployment with clients and potential clients. There seems to be a religion among clients these days that everything must be “Open Source”. For the less educated of my potential clients, I often find this term confused with “WordPress” or “Drupal”. The problem is, I’m quibbling over semantics. The decision makers that evaluate our proposals are looking at whether they can take our work and move it from our environment running Adobe ColdFusion Enterprise 11, MS-SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012. While FarCryCore may be Open Source, the entire stack that I’m running it on is not.
So, I wanted to reach out to this community that has been lovingly keeping FarCry going and is actively engaged in keeping it up-to-date.
Do any of you deploy on completely Open Source platforms like Railo, MySQL, and Linux? Are there other alternatives? Do any of you use Cloud Services like Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services to manage deployment and hosting? What about tools like Docker?
