Try Socialengine on amazon hosting for free using optimized AMI !!!


We have launched AMI on Amazon Web Server platform with collaboration of Socialengine guys. This Socialengine AWS (Amazon Web Service) AMI stack is preconfigured and ready to use image that provide an environment settings for scalable, performance and high availability for socialengine platform. It's one click solution and your social networking site shall be ready in minutes. Amazon provides one year hosting for their micro tier for free so you don't have to spend any penny to try socialengine.

By default it have Socialengine trial version which is valid for 30 days but you can always upgrade it to license version once you are happy with the product.

You can use the same AMI for the production version using medium to x-large instances for the AWS. You shall get fast response for your website and as you know a fast web app is a successful web app. Amazon measured a 1% drop in sales for every 100ms of site latency, and Google measured a 20% drop in traffic for every 0.5 second delay (citation). Those are real numbers with real implications for your business and web app.
