Software Development for the Public Cloud Platforms: Windows Azure vs. Google App Engine vs. Amazon Web Services (AWS) vs AppHarbor.
In this talk the speaker will compare the most widely used public PaaS clouds (Azure, GAE and AWS) from the software developer’s perspective.
A parallel between Azure, GAE, AWS and few other clouds (like AppHarbor, Heroku, Cloudfoundry and AppForce) will be made based on several criteria: architecture, pricing, storage services (non-relational databases, relational databases in the cloud and blob/file storage), business-tier services (like queues, notifications, email, CDN, etc.), supported languages, platforms and frameworks and front-end technologies.
A live demo will be made to compare the way we build and deploy a multi-tiered application in Azure, Amazon and GAE and how to implement its back-end (using a cloud database), business tier (based on REST services) and front-end (based on HTML5).
