AppScale - The Google App Engine Alternative

Google App Engine

Google App Engine (GAE) is the most popular Platform as a Service in the world. With six million active applications hosted on Google’s servers the evidence is compelling. Why is it so popular?

The API driven model gives developers the opportunity to quickly create web and mobile applications and then iterate on those applications. It is brilliant.
