One response to “Oracle PaaS Speculations”

    Any CloudWashed litmus test should tie back into the NIST definitions and clarify where cloud architectural principles are embedded into the solution stack. For example, is the Java virtual machine inherently multi-tenant and shareable.

    My view of Cloud Washed and Cloud Native can be found at http://blog.cobia.net/cobiacomm/2012/05/31/cloud-native-paas-or-cloud-washed-paas/

    I’m interested in hearing whether others believe JEE must evolve to reach the cloud. An interesting tweet today mentioned C Programs on OpenShift exemplify Cloudy PaaS. Seems like hosting a traditional program (client-server, web application, command line process) within a virtual machine is today’s mainstream definition of Cloud. Little discussion covers evolving application architecture to create cloud-aware applications purpose-built to exhibit cloud characteristics.
