BEE is developed by a service provider (Accsoft) and would naturally contain features that make providers' life easier and cost lower. For example, BEE is implemented with the most popular open source engines: Apache/PHP/MySQL. As a result, BEE can run on both Linux and Windows.
A hosting provider will necessarily run multiple customer websites on a single physical web server. The security among users on the same server is a major concern to the provider. BEE allocates resources independently and separately to individual websites, and give full control of resource allocation to the provider instead of the programmer.
Resource "hook-up" cannot be done from the code (such feature is omitted from BEE delibrately to prevent "freedom of association" between websites and "out-of-bound" resources). All resources are allocated by the provider from the platform. This design provides an excellent security measure to the provider.
The centre of administration for a BEE web server is CROFT (Customer Resource Online Facility Tables - currently implemented with MySQL). Without CROFT, BEE will not run. Even in a single website environment, CROFT is still needed (but can be reduced to an ini file to reduce the burden of having to install a database engine).
