Excerpts from Neil McEvoy's message of 2012-02-11 10:51:36 +0000:
> Hey folks
> I'm looking to create a 'How to create open data apps' guide kinda thing, from a slant of the Cloud tools you might use.
> So the first thing I need to do is establish if this is even possible, and who/how might it work. In short, can any one shed any light or experiences of using tools like Google AppEngine, Force.com or any other 'Platform as a Service' toolsets for creating open data apps? How do they do it at the moment, is it mainly PHP web app type scripting?
> Thanks!

Lately I start using node.js and it looks like 'nodejitsu' people have some nice 'cloudy' tools for it:

I would also keep an eye on: http://www.eucalyptus.com/
and it's AWS compatibility: http://www.eucalyptus.com/resources/AmazonAWS
