Cloud Based Application Platforms

Post icon  Posted 03 November 2011 - 12:02 AM

Howdy. I recently moved my interactive Clojure REPL/introductory tutorial site, Try Clojure, to Heroku. I just now blogged about Heroku and my experiences moving to it. The blog post is here: http://blog.raynes.m...jure-to-heroku/

I was curious about what other DiCers think of Heroku and other cloud-based application platforms, and what they're using them for. Especially the latter. Does anyone else here have anything interesting hosted on them? Let's see 'em!

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 2

I love Heroku. I'm actually using Heroku to host my personal site (using Jekyll+Ruby) and a site I made using Sinatra+Ruby to convert markup into HTML: http://checkmark.heroku.com. I think Heroku is a great service and with their recent change to support Java, I think it's only going to grow and get better.

Yeah, they actually support Clojure explicitly now. As I point out in my blog post, they employ Phil Hagelburg who is actually a big Clojure fellow. They're crazy awesome as far as support for languages go.
