    What is really important is Amazon have the concept of an Elastic Beanstalk Container. When you create your application you choose your Solution Stack. Currently there are only 2 stacks:
    64bit Amazon Linux running Tomcat 6
    32bit Amazon Linux running Tomcat 6

    Imagine if you could build and register your own Solution Stacks in the same way that you can build and register amazon machine images and take existing solution stacks and modify them. It will solve the problems with early PaaS products of lack of flexibility to tailor the components as often applications have all sorts of custom requirements (caching, third-party tools, version requirements etc). Hope amazon plan this in the future….

    CumuLogic is also in Java PaaS space and we differentiate highly from beanstalk by offering choice of containers and other infrastructure components (open source as well as commerical -stay tuned on details). We enable Cloud / Service Providers to offer enterprises such functionality on any cloud that enterprises prefer to deploy on including Private Cloud options.
