If you’re small enough to be going standalone, do you even care about vMotion? I’d argue that you’re sacrificing some functionality for ease of use, and likely cost savings…I think it’s the classic “it depends”. Do you care about uptime in a home lab, and therefore need vcenter? Probably not. Would I want to run a critical business app without that protection? Probably not.Interesting thought experiment...
I could see it going a couple of ways…A form where you can drop in a list of names, with a predefined message that you can edit would probably be the easiest route. I think of this option similar to what you see in LinkedIn when you want to connect with someone. There’s a canned message that you can customize before it emails out to the recipient. I could also see a customized registration URL. If I were to go into my profile, there would maybe a link customized to the individual, that you can send out on your own or post to social. Because it would be customized per user, you could see what level of engagement it generated, as well as do some form of recognition for those who are trying to bring additional members to the platform.Again, just a thought on how to potentially build some membership momentum. I have NO idea how much effort this would entail. :) Thanks for being receptive!Cheers!
Personally, something that will send out e-mails just smells a bit like spam, to be honest. A “referral type link” seems like it could be a more fair way of sending traffic back to the site. You’re not wrong… I personally like the link as well, but I’m guessing you’ll only get really engaged folks to go through that process. I guess it all depends on what the product owners want out of this community and who you want to attract. A form based approach takes some of the work out of the users hands.Selfishly, I just want to get my team on here!
