I see someone has followed up on my mention of Influxis. While I think they would be a good fit for carrying on lccs and they are great guys, I have no inside information that such an occurance is likely to happen. Of course we all hope someone comes forward to maintain lccs and the sooner the better.
I can't comment on who the partner might be at this point. We are still in active discussions and I'll share more info just as soon as i can.
Hi Jeff, good to ear that discussions are going on.
But would you have a timeframe (at least a rough one).
Do you think that in 1 month from now, we should have definitive answer that would be positive or negative?
I know its hard question, but as Adobe fixed the 9 month deadline, time is running up for us.
ps: Thats why Adobe shouldhave engaged those discussions BEFORE announcing a deadline.
I hope they learned about it, but sadly im not so sure.
We are getting very close to a completed deal with a hosting partner to take over the LCCS service. I had hoped to make an announcement this week as I am going on vacation for the next two weeks, but we are not quite there yet. I have arranged for an announcement to be sent out once the deal closes. In parallel with the work on the agreement we have been working with this partner to prepare them to take over the service. The plan is for them to have their service up and running by October 1 to ensure a smooth transition. We should have more news soon. Thanks for your continued patience.
this is good news jeff. thank you very much for keeping us updated.
Thanks Jeff. This is incredibly good news.
Awesome News Jeff!!
Very good news.
But when an official announcement will be done, once the deal is complete, it would be important that Adobe officially guaranty that the service will not be shut down on Adobe side, before the new service is fully running on the new side.
And don't forget that a lot of people is waiting to know if the new hosted service will be full featured, especially we need to know if the screen sharing will still be available?
Thanks a lot for your personal hard work to get a decent solution.
