Question by atif_afsar: Hosting business critical applications and Web site?
We are planning to start a small business in which we will be providing various solutions like Cloud Computing and SaaS. We are a bunch of java professionals (i.e around 11 java professionals) and would like to start a small business. Our main problem is that we want to host all our business critical applications for our clients online and in-house but we really do not know where to start from. Since some of our applications are business critical, we do not want to rely on the ISP. What we want is the complete control on our applications and database. Could anyone please help us.

If it is so critical, you have no other choice but to set up your own server(s). This is rather expensive, as you have to be PHYSICALLY linked to the web backbone (the fibre optic infrastructure). Usually, these are provided by the country major telephone company. If you are physically close to a telephone exchange, that may not be too hard!
