Overview

The least understood feature of cloud computing, Platform as a Service (PaaS), is also the most powerful and cost effective. This concise overview shows you why organizations that properly wield PaaS can quickly gain a strong competitive advantage. You’ll learn how PaaS enables developers to pursue low cost R&D projects, lets system administrators focus on systems rather than servers, and helps architects evaluate new technology quickly and directly. This book offers valuable advice for technically and not-so-technically minded people who want to understand how PaaS can change the way organizations do computing.

I could not find a good overview of what are key points for PaaS and key players. I found more valuable informations by reading some blogs.

Without getting into too many details, this book explains PaaS in layman terms. And, it can read within a couple of hours!

The examples are very thorough. An excellent introduction to using open source technologies to create your own solution. This is a short read, only 35 pages, but delivers a good look into the different usability cases that distinguish platform as a service from other offerings.
