The "sameboat" platform as a service is a set of stackable¹ vertical feature set SKUs of the C六 product independent of DS but with function in these areas:
CommerceDS Uniform COA: Oscar - SQL-Ledger - Shopify integration.
Local Directory NetworkCommunity directory including craigslist like functionality. Geo nodes may join the sameboat domain as independent operators or franchisees or the Saas/Paas may be independently operated.
MatchingApplies Gale-Shapley, Irving, and Top Trading Cycle generalized to arbitrary suitable objects, notably C六 drupal and django OWL RDF.
DS is "Domain Space", my bundling of domain engineering services under the ægis of the .dom TLD³. In the PaaS options, computing inventory of your TLD and its dependent clusters is provisioned dynamically from your Linode or AWS account by the DS Control Program (DCP).
Pricing is based on mode and there is a low cost DIY option. If you just want the software to run, don't need DCP service, want to use your own servers, and want to do all provisioning yourself, just get 1st class AKPERSON for DS service for access to distribution for that.
In the SaaS option, you will be operating a domain space distinct from but equivalent to mine, except for some higher functions of the DCP. You will be self managing and you will require a linode or AWS account to supply it with actual compute inventory.
In the PaaS option, you operate a dependent domain space which does participate in the central DCP domain maintenance. In this case, we use our AWS or linode accounts to provide computing inventory. After the first quarter (90d) the actual use is learned and billing adjusted for greater or lesser use. A largely unchanged consumption rate thus would result in billing approaching 2X the undiscounted SaaS price the actual base price of the service.
The PaaS / SaaS prices here are extended service agreements corresponding to the AKDOMHOST and AKDOMSVC SKUs, from my Rate Chart on 20 September 2021, respectively and are DS IMU prices. As always, actual prices are only known at Point of Sale when all 3rd party fees and currency conversions are transacted in real time.
¹Stackable here means that you can incrementally add the functions to a base established with any one of them.² Practically if you intend to use Shopify integration features you should get at least 1 quarter of a PaaS SKU.
³ Top Level Domain. Use a public name from your registrar of choice and assign its name servers to your TLD hosts, develop/admin in the private suffix space, serve the purchased name to the wild from the public names on the same hosts. Two hosts are required for and included in the TLD SKU
