Cloud’s PaaS Potentialuser interest in platformsPaaS supports Software Developers inthe Cloud-Based development lifecycle… the role “Software Developer” is very general…
Cloud’s PaaS Potentialinnovative platforms bring diversityWe’re seeing diversity on many levels.
Cloud’s PaaS Potentialwhat’s it looking like today?… “PaaS” have several roles and focuses.… the actual PaaS market is, still young, chaotic and highly fragmented…
Cloud’s PaaS Potentialchallenges!innovative PaaS segment, but alsofragmented• if so diverse, what’s the best PaaSfor you?• How does the developer find andcompare PaaS solutions when thelandscape is so diverse?vendor lock-in!• how does the developer leave aprovider with minimal switching costs• how can we help the developer avoidlock-in after that initial decision?IDC SMAT 2011/0045Cloud Demands and BarriersReportPortability is 2nd most requestedactions to alleviate in Cloud forhigher adoption and investment

PaaS Interoperability & PortabilityPaaS Interoperability as the Ability fordifferent cloud to talk to each other atthree different levels (Software, PaaS,IaaS)PaaS Portability as the capability to operatesoftware on different platforms without the needfor changesLock-in when there is significant cost to switchcloud vendorsPaaS Interoperabilityat PaaS LevelC#PaaS Interoperabilityat Software LevelPaaS Interoperabilityat IaaS LevelPaaS Interoperability as the ability ofapplications and data to be managed andmigrated between Cloud PaaS offerings that areusing the same technological background butdifferent concepts and Application ProgrammingInterfaces (APIs).

matchmakingthe problem:• PaaS segment highlight fragmented• difficult to compare, not a commodity IaaSCloud4SOA’s answer:• more than a listing, more than a search engine• can find best optimized platform based on application requirements, suchas technology, functionality, capacity, development support and quality ofservice• empowers the developer to compare and decide
managementthe problem:• different applications, different technologies, different needs: where tomanage it all?Cloud4SOA’s answer:• first multi-cloud manager on the platform layer• allows full governance lifecycle, control over various applications, invarious platforms/vendors• does not replace the PaaS, it accompanies it
monitoringthe problem:• diversity of metrics• enforcement of applications policiesCloud4SOA’s answer:• unified metrics, unified interface – overlooking all your deployments atonce• empowers developer to compare, contrast, test• brings a unique application based user-defined applications policiesmonitoring
migrationthe problem:• vendor lock-in is a chief adoption barrier• developer dependency to one platformCloud4SOA’s answer:• first true Cloud-Based application portability solution• opens market segment, builds on top of PaaS value proposition, alleviatingits chief drawback
