As we march towards a future dominated by PaaS, we are seeing companies ramping up their offerings. Today Apprenda (previous CloudAve coverage), the .NET PaaS provider, and Redhat (previous CloudAve Coverage), with their Openshift PaaS (previous CloudAve coverage) offering, made announcements about updates to their respective platforms. Apprenda announced the release of Apprenda 3.0, newer and fully productized version of their PaaS layer for enterprises (still) relying on .NET and Windows infrastructure. Redhat announced complete lifecycle support for Java in their OpenShift platform.
