I have a common problem that many developers have. I have small programs or processes that I want executed on a semi-regular basis, but having a whole server set aside for just running these processes seems like overkill. Back in May of this year I was thinking about this problem, because I had a small program that I needed run every day in the morning, but paying the exorbitant prices of a worker role from Azure or AppHarbor seemed like overkill for what I needed.
I knew there were others like me so I set out to build a service that provided an on-demand worker role, that allow developers like my self to only be charged for the small amount of time that their program was actually running. I decided to call it Executify.
More is to come in the future, but if you would like to be an early adopter or test out the service you can sign up for an account on http://executify.com
