Launching Blogtronix


OK guys,
I have been a bit quiet in the last few months. There is a good reason; I was very, very busy with a new startup. A few of you know about my work, but here it is as we are finally ready with our main product and almost ready to start beta testing with our clients.



Yes, it is true, I have been working on a new blogging and business-networking service and yes Marc, it is on Microsoft’s 2.0 .NET platform. I have joined the other side .

My new company is Blogtronix. (www.blogtronix.com) We are going to provide secure blogging and social (and business) networking service to businesses, universities and government agencies.
I am today at the Blog Business Summit (http://www.blogbusinesssummit.com) in SF and here is where we are making the announcement about our official launch. We are working on our web site as we speak, but soon there will be a lot more content, a free trial and who knows what else.

You may ask why we want to use .NET vs. Drupal or some other free blogging software. Well, because after talking to many corporations and potential clients, they all want a platform that integrates with your current IT infrastructure. So, since most desktops are a Microsoft based, why would you do anything else if you are going after the corporate market.

On top of the regular hosting, we are finishing a blogging appliance, which when connected to our main servers will create a true blogging and business delivery network.

There is a lot more that Blogtronix will do, but this is just a sneak peak at what we are working on. We did boot strap the company, and now that the product is ready are raising seed money to start selling.

Cheers for now,
Vassil

Hi Vassil,
i think this is a very good idea, because .Net and MS SQL are very scalable solution.
I am supporting a Drupal engine with about 1000 registered bloggers on AMD 64 + 1 Gb RAM and it sucks.
I am looking forward for Blogtronix and if the price is right you can count on me.
