My thinking actually started with possibly running our own hackage server,
but then you have to allocate a machine and take time/skills to administer
it. So if a service like this is available at a similar or lower cost it
starts to make sense.

It also lowers the bar for commercial take-up, by sending a signal that
commercial users are supported, and allowing "toe-in-the water" commercial
projects at low upfront cost.
