[OpenIndiana-discuss] OpenIndiana hosting advocating?

When I check around for hosting services (I do it a lot, part of my job)
I always check availability of Solaris like OSs. I must say that the
result is sad.

OVH is the only cheap service that provides OpenSolaris 2009.06 support.
And that OS is getting old fast. Do you know of anything else?

I was wondering if OpenIndiana should have some kind of "advocates" to
try to make easy for hosting services to deploy OI hosted servers on par
with fedora/debian/ubuntu/whatever linux flavour they already do.

I really think this visibility would be a huge PR win, and would help to
increase userbase a lot.

And yes, this would be nice to sync with the OI "stable" release, with
maintenance, security fixes, etc. But I suppose that "advocating" should
be started as soon as possible.

PS: Everytime I see an interesting hosted server with no
Solaris/OpenSolaris option, I always send an email asking for it. No
success so far :).
