Sample Apps ● Ticketmonster ● Example Ticketing App ● Java EE6 - JSF 2, JPA 2, CDI and JAX- RS Along with HTML5, jQuery Mobile, JSF and GWT, postgres https://github.com/jbo ss-jdf/ticket-monster ● Etherpad ● A really-real time collaborative word processor for the webg ● node.js, mongodb https://github.com/ether/e therpad-lite OPEN SOURCE!!
  9. 9. Criteria ● Free Tier? Costs? ● Polygot? At least Java + node.js support ● Speed to live? ● Tooling? ● Does it scale? ● Lock-in? ● Is it Open Source? ● Can I go to Production? ● Where is my app running? Can I run the PaaS somewhere else?
  10. 10. AWS – Elastic Beanstalk ● “Wizard for deploying apps to EC2” ● Is it really Paas? ● Fast, easy, and massively scalable though... Free Tier? + Polygot? + Speed to live? + Tooling? + Does it scale? + Lock-in? + Is it Open Source? - Can I go to prod? + Run the PaaS somewhere else? - Tally: 7 (out of 9)
  11. 11. CloudBees ● Phenomenal focus on CI+Devops features ● Java focused ● High density (many workloads per VM) ● Fast, easy, deployments. Plethora of tooling. Free Tier? + Polygot? - * Speed to live? + Tooling? + Does it scale? + Lock-in? + Is it Open Source? - * Can I go to prod? + Run the PaaS somewhere else? - Tally: 6-8 (out of 9)
  12. 12. Cloud Foundry (Pivotal Hosted) ● In Beta, no SLAs. Long queue for invite. ● Minimal documentation ● Open Source, can run anywhere! Free Tier? + Polygot? + Speed to live? + Tooling? + Does it scale? + Lock-in? + Is it Open Source? + Can I go to prod? - Run the PaaS somewhere else? + Tally: 8 (out of 9)
  13. 13. Heroku ● Mature ● High Density (many running Dynos on one VM) ● Supports many languages ● Large community of users Free Tier? + Polygot? + Speed to live? + Tooling? + Does it scale? + Lock-in? + Is it Open Source? - Can I go to prod? + Run the PaaS somewhere else? - Tally: 7 (out of 9)
  14. 14. OpenShift ● Open Source, many languages, DIY cartridges ● High Density (many running gears on one VM) ● OpenShift Enterprise = Run Anywhere Free Tier? + Polygot? + Speed to live? + Tooling? + Does it scale? + Lock-in? + Is it Open Source? + Can I go to prod? + Run the PaaS somewhere else? + Tally: 9 (out of 9)
  15. 15. Summary All of contenders have a free tier + speed to live Key Differentiators are: ● Community and Support ● Cost after free (depends on workload profile) ● Production readiness All of these run on EC2 under the covers :-) No more excuses... code. deploy. innovate.
