When it comes to the cloud, there is no shortage of platforms and associated APIs that developers need to watch when deploying their applications. Not only do developers need to ensure that an application is compatible with a specific set of cloud APIs, they also need to make sure the application stays compatible over time as APIs evolve and change.

As platform-as-a-service (PaaS) starts to gain traction in the enterprise, an opportunity to standardize on a common application development platform—both on-premises and in the cloud—is starting to present itself. Case in point is a new alliance between Microsoft and Apprenda under which Apprenda will deploy its PaaS environment on top of Microsoft Azure.
The emergence of platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings as a foundation to build applications in a way that abstracts traditional middleware is proving to be a boon for developers in the age of the cloud. The challenge is that there is no such thing as a single cloud. The cloud actually consists of a mix of programmable platforms that lie both inside and out of the traditional enterprise. Apprenda wants to make it easier to invoke those cloud resources with the inclusion of an API that allows developers to dynamically scale resources in response to user traffic demands or a specific policy requirement within the PaaS environment.
