Amazon have announced they’ll be joining Microsoft in the New Zealand market, which above all else, means we’re going to have to put up with two marketing departments trying to compete with each other for the cleverest use of “long white cloud” in their advertising campaigns. We’ll all be looking forward to that.
In the mean time, now might be a good time to reflect on who you’d rather have doing your hosting, and what you can do to support New Zealand businesses. We are, at least in practice, provider agnostic when it comes to hosting, but in principle we feel that there might be better options out there. The choice is yours to make.
