We are happy to announce our sponsorship of CloudAve, a content oriented community consisting of blogs, wiki & forums, with a mission to advance business applications on the cloud. Initially, this will start as a blog @ www.cloudave.com with Zoli Erdos, the Editor-in-Chief, Ben Kepes as Editor and a team of bloggers with diverse backgrounds. CloudAve will also carry periodic guest posts from other bloggers. Our sponsorship consists of providing the tools for the site, as well as financial support.

So why are we doing this? We have come to appreciate how content is a crucial part of communities. Vibrant communities need strong anchors – bloggers who have a point of view, and express it well. CloudAve will be the stage where bloggers express their point of view and start the discussion on business applications on the cloud. The same collaborative tools that Zoho provides for businesses are used to power the CloudAve site. This has obvious benefits to Zoho customers, and hence ourselves. Over time, the site itself will add new collaborative features, which is where our own focus at Zoho will be.

I want to make it clear that while Zoho sponsors the site, Zoli and his team make all editorial decisions. Zoho will have no influence on the content of CloudAve. The mission is to advance business applications on the cloud, and that is far broader than just Zoho.

One decision that Zoli made early on that we were excited by: all content posted by the anchor bloggers will be available on a liberal Creative Commons license. Guest bloggers will retain their own copyright, and can republish their content wherever they choose to.

More information on is available @ CloudAve.

    We are closing the old site and rebranding the company. The reason? We are spending more time consulting with tiny startups and minority businesses. The one thing they all have in common is small funding and large dreams. I’m getting them all on ZOHO because I’ve been using it for several months and it just keeps getting better.All of our students are asked to commit to donations, etc to help the development team. When they successfully launch, I want them to remember who helped them get there. ZOHO!Thanks, Arvind and the whole ZOHO development team.

    I would like to keep an open mind about personal participation. But I most definitely wish to remain exposed to prospects and developments. Thanks.

    Any open forum to discuss the direction that cloud computing is moving is welcome. My own interests are how it and SaaS can be applied to commercial applications such as property management, facilities management of multi-tenanted buildings and serviced office spaces. I would be interested both as the user of such applications or if they don’t currently exist the sponsor to get them developed. That all said I’m a novice to this whole technology and so would welcome any comments or advice.
