The future of PaaS is in multicloud
@John good post

"More intriguing is Platt's prediction that enterprises "will want to be able to run their applications across multiple clouds at the same time." As in earlier eras of computing, customers will want to avoid getting locked in to any particular supplier's offering and will want the ability to "pit vendors against each other to get better pricing."

I would agree with the statement that the future of PaaS is in multi-cloud whether for reasons of portability i.e. avoiding vendor lockin, cloud bursting or hybrid cloud in general.

There are several steps to make this sort of Cloud Portability a practical reality - as i noted in one of my talks here. The main one is to use an independent deployment and orchestration layer that can plug into different cloud providers and keep the deployment of the application abstracted from the specific underlying infrastructure.

As for Cloud Bursting this is a fairly complex issue. From what i coud see so far people had been refering to Cloud Bursting mostly from a networking perspective i.e. making the connectivity between private and public cloud however there is much more into it. We need to be able to create a similar enviroment in both ends of the cloud to make cloud bursting a viable option, we also need to deal with data synchronization and security.  See a more detailed description on that regard here

Re: PaaS and CodeAnywhere
@John: Good post and keeps me on my toes. I have just signed up for Codeanywhere. Tools like this allow developers and organizations far more decentralized and virtual project management. Will keep you posted.

Cloud9 IDE, also mentioned by Ms. M, looks quite interesting, too.

This Code Anywhere, mentioned earlier, by @TinyM, certainly does look interesting. I wish I had something to code.

I hadn't heard about Microsoft Azure platform catering to PaaS. Would be interesting to check it out..

Re: Need support from existing platforms
There's lots of support for open source in the PaaS marketplace. In fact, I'd say that there's more open source stuff supported there than in most other parts of the marketplace. The initial users of PaaS, anyway, are very hip to open source; they know what they need and PaaS providers know they know.

Re: Need support from existing platforms
What intrigues me most is incorporating email in PaaS. As email's utility and outreach goes much farther than the other services, it can prove to be much more popular too. I would definitely look forward to what solutions are offered in this respect.

John, I think cloud offerings from Microsoft (Azure) may support all such supports and interoperatability. But the issues may come with open source tools and software's, where support is limited.

Re: Need support from existing platforms
It's interesting that PHP and Ruby on Rails are getting such attention in the PaaS market: Not only Engine Yard but Appfog and Heroku, now a unit of Salesforce.com, are backing those and other languages, too.
