Re: The battle for next gen. developers is the battle for the cloud
Lorna, C/C++ is a tough nut to crack. On Apprenda, for example, apps with C/C++ code CAN be deployed, but they inherit basic PaaS value. Managed runtimes like the .NET CLR and JVM allow us to do some interesting enhancements to make apps "cloud like" without being architected that way.

The short answer? You can kind-of use C/C++, but typically only when it's an extension of some managed code.

Re: The battle for next gen. developers is the battle for the cloud
Charlie, given the Microsoft deal, is there any possibility of support for C/C++? Also, noticed that word "containerization" again for Apprenda's approach. Do other PaaS players use containers as well?

The battle for next gen. developers is the battle for the cloud
Microsoft's Azure itself started as a PaaS platform for Windows and .net, later expanded to Java. That makes it all the more revealing that Microsoft has decided to increase Azure's appeal with an on-premises vendor. Visual Studio and dozens of other Windows development tools are on-premises as well, so in theory Microsoft doesn't need a hybrid cloud partner. But in fact, PaaS is an all important battleground and Apprenda has thought t hrough the enterprise PaaS problem. In the end, it makes sense for Microsoft to endter this partnership.
