Analyzing the PaaS Landscape – Force.com

Deploying an application on IaaS will involve building everything from the scratch

I am helping one of my customers choose the right development and deployment platform. They are building an extremely data-centric and process-driven application. In the process of choosing the right development and deployment platforms, I evaluated existing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings.

Deploying an application on IaaS will involve building everything from the scratch. Since the application requires functionality that is already available in the form of third-party components, we may have to deal with the licensing and compatibility issues of these components. So, it becomes the responsibility of the developer to write the core business logic that includes the integration of multiple third-party components. Since we are dealing with IaaS, we also need a solid DevOps strategy to deploy and manage the application. Once the application goes live, we need to define the scaling policy and monitor the infrastructure needs regularly. This requires investment not just in the Cloud infrastructure but also in highly skilled developers and administrators to develop and deploy the application that my customer is not ready to invest. The plan is to have a lean and mean team that is highly efficient.
