It’s been just a month since we launched CloudStory.in. But it certainly feels more than that!
January’s focus has been on Platform as a Service. We did an in-depth analysis of Google App Engine, VMware Cloud Foundry, Red Hat OpenShift and Force.com. Continuing on the theme of PaaS, we partnered with Zinnov to deliver a Webinar to analyze the PaaS landscape. This was India’s first webinar that was neutral, unbiased and an independent analysis of the PaaS market. The feedback from the attendees has been very encouraging and we are committed to bring more such Webinars in the future.
Here is a round up of some of the popular articles from January-
