AWS: no per minute billing, need simpler discount options, need more regions and zones, no real PaaS strategy, not instance migration.

…the creation of lightweight containers. It has many purposes and serves as a good building block for PaaS, application deployments, continuous integration systems and more. No wonder it's becoming more and more popular every day.

I believe that the next big thing is larger then IaaS or PaaS. I feel that the next big thing is Orchestration. Sitting above IaaS and PaaS, this will allow you to configure, deploy and manage large scale, complex sets of services across many providers. For example, you could provision an IaaS for your databases and a PaaS to handle your code and deployment. You could even have it manage a backup IaaS region or provider, failing over if the primary runs into problems. It can even manage …

While worldwide server revenues were declining more than 6% in the second quarter of 2013, AWS is expected to reach close to $4b of revenues in 2013. This battle of numbers reflects a profound underlying change in the IT industry: the move from …

…still is) fun to write applications with, but deployment was not very pleasant (unsurprisingly, the PaaS market has blossomed since then!). This drove me to JRuby, for which warbler eased the pain enormously.

I was lucky to have found JRuby, whose core members are welcoming, and for which I have been able to make meaningful contributions. The JRuby team released 1.7.0 in October. This release includes support for the new 'invokedynamic' feature support, better 1.9 compatibility, …
