Abstract

Conceived to expose remote infrastructures and services to application developers, most of the current Platform-as-a-services are based on proprietary technologies. While several initiatives for building open-source platforms were started only recently, the developers’ positive feedback is already reflected in substantial contributions. A such new platform, deployable in private and public Clouds, is presented shortly and details are provided for its event-driven approach and support for web applications.
