For the last months our team has invested a lot of time exploring and researching the relationship between ISVs and Hosters. I shared some of the early thoughts and findings in a series of posts in this blog:
Part I - The Scenario
Part II - On-Boarding
Part III - Billing, Metering
Part IV - SLAs
Part V – Strategies for Capacity Management
We also wrote the white paper "ISVs are from Mars, Hosters are from Venus" and now finally I'm happy to share with you an end to end concept demo. We've implemented this to help illustrate the experience described in the white paper, between a hypothetical hoster (Northwind Hosting) and an ISV (Litware).
