I discovered Sandstorm last week while searching for Slack alternatives for the company. What’s the best way to describe Sandstorm? It’s a virtual environment for hosting web applications. Think of it as your very own Google infra, where you can set up mail, blogs, chat, code repositories, file shares, and even games. And it can all be self-hosted.
I got it running over the weekend and I’m pretty impressed with the polish and ease of use. I have it installed on an internal server now and I’m going to see what the team’s response is tomorrow.
