Develop on an open-source cloud application platform.
As the use of cloud technology matures, companies find the need to move up the stack to get value. In particular, platform-as-a-service (PaaS) provides a one-stop, complete operating system for the cloud. Enterprises that use PaaS solutions like Cloud Foundry don't have to worry about the details of how to manage cloud resources to run their apps. The platform takes care of that for them. All they have to focus on is their application code and access to a catalog of services. The platform does the rest: scaling, healing, high availability, disaster recovery, and so on. With constant innovation, early…
