Cloud Video: Juan Noceda and Matt Hicks at Summit 2012 on Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) Present and Future

In June 2012 I had the pleasure of giving this talk at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, together with Matt Hicks, we covered the present and future of Platform as a Service (PaaS) through the eyes of OpenShift, the cloud product that I manage at Red Hat.

Since OpenShift moves very fast you may want to complement the info on this video with the content of this OpenShift Roadmap blog post that I added a few weeks ago on

The content of the video can be helpful for the non-technical person that just want to know more about the benefits of Cloud, Big Data, and PaaS, as well as for the Developer or IT Manager that wants to know the technical details: features, how OpenShift works, the open source project OpenShift Origin, and more.

Concretamente, estuve explicando como Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) o el Servicio de Plataforma se esta convirtiendo en una herramienta mas que necesaria para nuevos emprendimientos.

Para resumir mi vision a futuro del mercado de Cloud, creo que a partir de ahora, emprendimientos web que no esten basados en un servicio de PaaS como OpenShift de Red Hat no van a poder competir en tiempo y forma con start-ups que se muevan de manera agil explotando las ventajas de calidad y velocidad que ofrece el modelo PaaS. Alquilar y mantener servidores virtuales remotos y su software stack no es el negocio del desarrollador de aplicaciones y es demasi…
