Engine Yard CEO discusses future of PaaS

Engine Yard CEO discusses future of PaaS

Date: Sep 22, 2011

Enterprises are beginning to jump on board with Platform as a Service (PaaS) for new application development, especially with the agility of cloud-based app development. John Dillon, CEO of Ruby on Rails Platform as a Service is confident that all applications will eventually be developed on PaaS. Find out what else is in store for application development in this week's episode of Cloud Cover TV.

We discuss:

  • Agility of cloud-based application development
  • In the old days it was build, deploy, decay, versus in the cloud it's build deploy, refresh
  • Enterprises getting on board with PaaS for new application development
  • Over time all apps will be developed this way
  • Engine Yard on the fence about whether it will package up its PaaS and sell it to enterprises
  • Engine Yard runs on Amazon and Terremark
  • Public versus private cloud; hybrid cloud will run at a managed data center
  • Doesn't make any sense for enterprises to be building data centers
  • Old vendors defining cloud in a way that is compatible with their existing business models
  • Deep competence in Ruby and PHP; if we do other languages it won't be until we can deliver a high quality service
  • Heroku versus Engine Yard
