New Online Poll, CF Edition Pole Results

Updated on November 16, 2023

poll data I have retired my last online poll: What Edition of CF do you use, and much to my surprise it has been pretty much a tie between Standard and Enterprise from the beginning. I expected Standard to have more market share than Enterprise.

I have posted a new poll online titled What kind of hosting do you use most? The choices are Shared, Dedicated, and Virtual Private Hosting (VPS).

If your not familiar with VPS hosting, it is where the hosting provider partitions a physical machine into several virtual operating systems. So you get a root account, and you can install what ever you want, but your sharing the physical resources (RAM and CPU) of the machine with other people. Some VPS hosts will dedicate amounts of RAM and CPU to your account.

The main VPS software providers are Virtuozzo, User Mode Linux (the other UML), and vmware.

Is anyone running a ColdFusion server on a VPS host? How does it work?

Hi Peter,

Love your blog (the only one I read consistently). I'm pretty sure you've thought of this but the numbers for the poll are quite skewed. I would say your audience tends towards advanced ColdFusion users which are more likely to be Enterprise users. I doubt that the poll, in this case, reflects the distribution of coldfusion out in the market.

Just as an unscientific aside, when I went to purchase our copy of CF Enterprise, it was hard to get through regular distribution channels. Most people only stocks the standard version. Suggests to me that the standard edition is more popular.
