Hello,
I was watching a video presentation of google wave, a new exciting technology thats just been revealed publicly recently.

Google Wave Preview

I was wondering what cPanel thinks about Google Wave? Google is saying that an Open Source Wave server (service) will be released soon enough. They are encouraging competitors to setting up their own wave servers and even wave clients (although a client would not be for cpanel). Does cPanel have any plans on getting ahead of the competition and adding a WAVE SERVER (service) to cPanel when google makes the wave server code available?

I hope cPanel isn't going to put its head in the sand :) and ignore Google Wave. This is clearly a significant new system google is going to be releasing later this year that will greatly affect the way the web is used by millions.

I'm familiar with the concept of Google Wave, but curious as to how you think it would impact or be adopted by cPanel?

Well google wave has really presented to the world a new form of email. They are introducing an entirely new LIVE server communication model. One that is like CVS that holds a central data store (document / chat / email) on a server and all clients can interact with that datastore (document / chat / email) LIVE and each connected client will see updates being made LIVE. The server transmits to all the connected clients in a ALWAYS CONNECTED type setup.

Its just an excellent new model for the future and I would like to see cPanel come out with a WAVE SERVER (service) that we can all run on our cPanel servers. But I guess some other open source project team will end up being the ones who create a wave server first and then cPanel would include it. I know google will be releasing its wave server code as open source. I just really want cPanel to get on board QUICKLY and cement the Hosting Industry as being established providers of wave services. I don't want cPanel to drag its feet on this new system because from what I've seen this is a BIG CHANGE and will undoubtedly sweep the world quickly over the next few years.

cPanel could also develop its own client - as part of the cpanel control panel - or incorporate some open source client that will no doubt be released soon by some other open source project team.

Just the new Federation protocol offers to many new possibilites. For example the entire cpanel / WHM could run in this new protocol. When a users does things in their contro panel it wouldn't be loading webpages, it could just be a live interacting application running with instant feedback. With current http, the client has to repeatedly request info to get updates, in the new protocol the client is AUTOMATICALLY updated by the server as the changes take place.

The best example I can give is imagine you are a stock broker and you are watching the stock market prices. Under the new Federation protocol, you don't ever refresh your browser, when a price changes, when stocks are sold the server automatically updates the browser by its own initiative. Now some how transform that to cPanel and it could mean being able to watch bandwidth continously LIVE on your server, or CPU usage, or whatever. Even websites I believe will start to change with this new protocol, no longer will then be static, requiring the client to send requests for updates, they will keep updating instantaneously. I can't really think of how far reaching this will be, but I'm sure as time goes on it will become clearer just how much its going to change the face of the internet. I see the Google Wave system replacing Apache - or the "Web server" today as we know it.
