“Public cloud computing is often discussed in simplistic terms when it comes to a crucial interest group: developers. It’s either plain-vanilla infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or a specialized platform with built-in tools for developers, a.k.a. platform as a service (PaaS).

In fact, says Forrester Research, both types of public clouds serve developers well, and in some cases, the lines are rapidly blurring between them. Analysts James Staten, John Rymer, Vivian Brown and Phil Murphy interviewed 28 developer organizations to reach their conclusions on developers’ uses of the cloud. Their findings were published in “Forrester Wave: Enterprise Public Cloud Platforms, Q2 2013.”

The June 14 report not only covers the three best-known PaaS platforms, Salesforce.com’s Force.com, Microsoft’s Azure and Google’s App Engine, and runners-up IBM, Rackspace and Verizon Terremark, but some lesser-known public cloud suppliers as well that have proven popular with enterprise developers: SoftLayer, CloudBees, Cordys, EngineYard, GoGrid, Miosoft and Mendix.”
