Description DotCloud offers a Platform-as-a-Service that lets developers write applications in a variety of languages and provides push-button configuration.
GigaOM’s Take DotCloud represents an intriguing mix of IaaS flexibility and control with PaaS convenience. Its service, for which the company raised $10 million in its first funding round, appears to be the prototype for how to lure developers to cloud application platforms.
