Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is gaining serious traction among web and mobile developers, but as new PaaS providers emerge and existing vendors upgrade their features, its hard to keep track of what PaaS has to offer. This thorough introduction takes you through the PaaS model from a developers point of view, and breaks down the types of services that Google App Engine, Windows Azure, Heroku, Cloud Foundry, and others deliver.

Whether youre an entrepreneur or part of a large enterprise development team, this book shows you how PaaS can help you focus on innovative applications, rather than spend your time worrying about technical operations.

  • Track the clouds evolution from IaaS and DevOps to PaaS
  • Learn how PaaS combines the simplicity of shared web hosting with the control of dedicated hosting
  • Explore the benefits of both portable and non-portable PaaS options
  • Apply best practices for moving legacy apps to PaaS—and understand the challenges involved
  • Write new applications for PaaS from scratch with RESTful meta-services
  • Use PaaS to build mobile apps with backend services that scale
  • Examine the core services that each major provider currently offers
  • Learn the situations in which PaaS might not be advantageous

Synopsis:

As a web application developer, youve had only a few options in the past 20 years: shared web hosting (easy but slow and unreliable) or dedicated web hosting (hard and unreliable). Platform as a service (PaaS) not only gives you a new option, it offers the best of both worlds as an easy, fast, reliable, and scalable solution.

Among other advantages, this book will give you:

  • An explanation of the confusion between core cloud technology vs cloud-powered apps like Gmail, Dropbox, etc
  • Real life PaaS case studies
  • A lesson of the tradeoffs between portable and non-portable PaaS systems
  • Code examples of app changes
  • An overview of mobile apps on PaaS

He has also appeared in feature films (among them Zero Effect andMusic Within) and television shows (Leverage,Nowhere Man, Under Suspicion, etc.), as well as in a number of national TV commercials.
