Open Source PaaS Cloud Computing Stacks That Pack a Punch
Cloud systems offer low cost access to huge computational,
storage, and network resources. These systems offer per-user and
per-application isolation and customization via a service interface
that is often implemented using high-level language technologies,
well-defined Application Programming Interfaces, and web services.
Platform as a Service (PaaS) is a category of cloud computing
services which offers a way to support the
complete lifecycle of delivering web applications and services via the
cloud. Along with Software as a Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure
as a Service (IaaS), PaaS is a service model of cloud computing.
PaaS solution stacks offers a number of advantages. They
provide significant benefits for the business with extensive savings
in upfront cost of installing a development platform, improved
profits, zero maintenance, decreased operational costs, global access
to information using internet and many others. In essence, PaaS
technologies enable creative developers to spend less time managing
hardware and software.
PaaS solution stacks provide all of the
infrastructure to design or deploy general, business, social and
enterprise level software applications without being concerned
about the underlying infrastructure including networks, servers,
operating systems, storage and all the programming tools &
Two PaaS that are worthy of mention are Google App Engine and
Google App Engine is a platform for developing and hosting
web applications in Google-managed data centers. Whilst Google App
is free, it is not released under an open source license. Tsuru is
released under an open source license and shows real promise.
Now, let's explore the 5 open source PaaS solution stacks at
hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full
with an in-depth analysis of its features, together with links to
relevant resources and reviews.
