App42 PaaS – At App42 PaaS I am member of the Runtime Systems team, where taking care of distributed systems that manage many application hosting(Rails/PHP/Java/ Node.js), systems development and infrastructure automation.

At this point you must wondering What is App42 PaaS and what it do? Right? Let me explain.

App42 PaaS is a Public Cloud Platform-as-a-Service with support for multiple languages
and platforms. This will enable you to focus on your development rather than putting your time on infrastructure hassles.

Key Benefits:
– A Polyglot platform that supports multiple languages and frameworks like Ruby, Java, PHP, Node.js, JRuby, Jython and more.
– Multiple Cloud Services like MongoDB, CouchDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL and more.
– Control through Command Line as well as Management Console for quick deployment of Apps
– Customizable load balancing for high availability- Quick Scaling/Descaling of resources

My Journey with App42 API – The App42 Cloud API’s consists of a REST based service which has a JSON and XML interface. There are around 22+ modules with over 400+ API’s e.g. User, Session Management, Storage, Recommendation, Photo Gallery, Queue / Message, Game, Geo Spatial etc. which will help developers to develop their applications; irrespective of the type of App they are developing. SDK’s are provided for all popular languages and platforms which will enable easy integration of the API’s into the App code. With just a few lines of code, the App developer gets access to services from a simple to complex technical as well as business services.

I would like to thank Siddhartha Chandurkar and Naveen Goswami sincerely for your all support, kindness and help during years with organization. Thank you ShepHertz family to making this journey so wonderful.!!

Why do people use App42PaaS when AWS is present?


Recently i came across question: Why do people use App42PaaS when AWS is present?

It’s really interesting 🙂

Firstly, let me tell you, AWS and App42PaaS are different kind of cloud service providers. There should not be any comparison between them as AWS provides IaaS(Infrastructure as a Service) where as App42PaaS provides PaaS(Platform as a Service).

Now you must thinking what are the differences between them. Right?

In very short, IaaS gives you instance of Virtual Machine where you need deploy your application on top of it. PaaS gives you an environment where you just push code with some basic configuration by choosing them.

Let’s talk in details:

AWS:

Now a days, people are used to refer IaaS as HaaS(Hardware as a Service) as name suggest, IaaS provide us hardware, servers and networking components including storage. Once you own the instance, its become your responsibilities for housing, running and maintaining it and you typically pays on a per-use basis.

App42PaaS:

App42PaaS basically help developer to speed the development of app, saving money and most important innovating their applications and business instead of setting up configurations and managing things like servers and databases. Other features buying to use App42PaaS is the application deployment process such as agility, High Availability, Monitoring, Scale / Descale, limited need for expertise, easy deployment, and reduced cost and development time.
