One of the biggest criticisms of the App Engine has been the lock-in it creates. In this meetup, hosted by Google at the Googleplex, we'll have Chandra Krintz (http://www.cs.ucsb.edu/~ckrintz/) talk about AppScale (http://appscale.cs.ucsb.edu/), the open source project that her team is building to unlock the App Engine lock-in.
We'll also have time for up to 3 demos. If you're interested in demoing, please send me a brief description of you app to waleed at ninua .com.
AppScale is an open-source implementation of the Google AppEngine (GAE) cloud computing interface from the RACELab at UC Santa Barbara. AppScale enables execution of GAE applications on virtualized cluster systems. In particular, AppScale enables users to execute GAE applications using their own clusters with greater scalability and reliability than the GAE SDK provides. Moreover, AppScale executes automatically and transparently over cloud infrastructures such as the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Eucalyptus, the open-source implementation of the AWS interfaces.
