The Future is Now – Everyone wants a PaaS
The migration to cloud computing is well established, as companies everyone race to reduce IT spending and the greater flexibility that the cloud offers. It is far better to just pay for the IT systems you need when you need them rather than sunk costs of equipment and staffing that are difficult to adjust as business needs change.
The first generation of cloud computing solutions has largely consisted of virtualization, enabling IT administrators to configure a virtual machine with the software and settings they wish and then duplicate those images to run on as many nodes as they wish.
The next phase of the cloud revolution is now under way. Instead of having to mess with operating systems and virtual machines, software developers and IT staffs are able to publish their applications directly to services which handle configuration and deployment for them. Organizations can now let their hosting providers worry about patching and managing operating systems.
All the services your apps needs are already running and available on a PaaS. You don’t have to have IT experts to setup databases or queuing services. It is also trivial to scale your app to run on as many nodes as you require to handle heavy workloads or fail over. Just specify how many instances of the app you need from a control panel and the PaaS handles the rest.
It is only natural that virtual machine hosting became the backbone of most initial cloud computing strategies since traditional applications that companies rely on have been built with deep ties to operating system state and configurations. Now that new applications are largely being written to be cloud compatible from the very beginning, they can skip the normal virtual machine hosting step and go right to the PaaS.
The phenomenal growth of PaaS hosters in the last couple years shows that this trend is already well under way.
It is only a matter of time before the majority of custom applications are running on PaaSes. The only decision left is which PaaS is a customer to use?
Some PaaSes are built for particular software architectures forcing customers to choose between .NET, Java, Ruby, etc.
