since the market launched earlier this month, Reuven Cohen, founder and chief technologist for Enomaly, wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.
SpotCloud is a market where end users can shop for low-cost, on-demand computing services from a variety of providers. Enomaly developed the market to help its customers, who are cloud service providers, sell off any excess capacity they might have, even at a discount.
"Hundreds" of buyers and sellers have registered to use the service, Cohen said Wednesday. SpotCloud is still in beta, and Enomaly is approving companies before they can start buying or selling.
"One of the more interesting statistics is the ratio of buyers to sellers is tracking at 5:1 for buyers. This shows there's a lot of buy-side demand for the service," he said.
. For now, only service providers that use Enomaly's Elastic Computing Platform software can sell their services in the market. But that's set to change.
