Zend publishes PHP PaaS on RightScale

It looks like 2011 is shaping up as the year of PaaS, and the notion of what a PaaS is is starting to stretch out a bit. I used to think of PaaS as being what Heroku or Google App engine offer: a full compute service based around a language framework (or several) to which developers upload code for deployment.

Windows in the Cloud with RightScale

As many of you know we've been working on supporting Windows on par with Linux within RightScale for close to a year. The big moment has finally arrived where we can announce the general availability of our Windows support! By "support" we mean much more than being able to launch a Windows instance on EC2, which has been possible for a long time, so I thought it worthwhile to expand a little on...Read more
