Recent advances in cloud platforms (platforms-as-a-service or PaaS) have significantly simplified cloud use by providing developers with complete software/runtime stacks for execution of their web-accessible applications (apps) and services. PaaS systems offer programmatic access to scalable, distributed, and fault tolerant cloud services which eliminates the need for developers to write or deploy their own and enabling them to focus on their innovation.
In this presentation, we overview a new cloud platform called
AppScale. AppScale provides the benefits of PaaS but is unique in that it emulates, using open source technologies, what is arguably the "de facto" standard of public PaaS: Google App Engine. API-compatibilitywith App Engine means that any of the one million active App Engine apps today execute over AppScale without modification. This, in combination with the fact that AppScale executes (automatically deploys) anywhere a virtual machine can be instantiated (a laptop, an on-premise cluster, a local data center, Amazon EC2 or other IaaS), means that AppScale gives developers choice across all of the most popular deployment options available today, with no code rewrite.
