"Services like AppScale have the potential to attract attention for the similar values they provide to enterprise app developers. AppScale is the kind of service needed to avoid the expensive losses that can come with a down service."
“...a groundbreaking push to address the portability issues plaguing the public cloud. The ability to run cloud applications on-premise in itself provides a compelling reason for CIOs to embrace AppScale, especially now that the project has Google’s official backing.”
“AppScale helps prevent lock-in or reliance on any one Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provider. What makes AppScale unique is instead of simply offering another PaaS service, it provides a service for migrating apps from one cloud to another or even to self-hosted servers.”
“Google unveiled a partnership with startup AppScale that lets App Engine apps, which number roughly six million, run on other cloud services or companies’ own data centers and servers without modification. ...the move will help the company retain and attract more cloud customers.”
