Why Private PaaS is Not an Oxymoron

Date: Wednesday, November 16, 2011
10:00 - 11: AM PST (13:00 - 14:00 EST)
Presented by: ActiveState and Cloud Foundry

When you hear of PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) what typically comes to mind are names like Heroku, EngineYard, DotCloud, and Public PaaS providers. With the increasing focus on development of SaaS applications and some clear advantages to placing IT infrastructure in the cloud, these PaaS providers have had some trouble gaining significant traction with enterprises despite obvious advantages.

There is an emerging trend where enterprises require PaaS capabilities, but are demanding it on their own terms. They want a PaaS behind their own firewall to enable a secure cloud--a private PaaS.

Whitepaper: Extending Your Cloud Infrastructure with a Private PaaS
