Converging private PaaS, IaaS: The next generation of private cloud

Most IT pros build private clouds using IaaS but forget to consider developers. Convergence with private PaaS could meet needs, but not for all apps.

When people are planning a private cloud project, they remember the IaaS piece, but they forget to meet the expectations of developers. David Linthicum's guest Diane Mueller, cloud ecosystem evangelist at Red Hat focusing on OpenShift, tells IT pros to "mind the gap" and remember to fill in any private cloud with a fully integrated platform solution, such as Platform as a Service (PaaS). John Treadway, senior vice president at Cloud Technology partners, joins the Cloud Computing Weekly podcast to discuss the future of PaaS, and the guests debate what applications should not be deployed in private PaaS. The word of the day, according to Treadway, is convergence. Topics include:

  1. What are the strengths and limitations of the private PaaS approach to private cloud, and how will people implement this architecture in the future?
  2. What are examples in which private PaaS would not be a good fit? Are there applications that should not be deployed in PaaS?
