The PaaS Space Gets Crowded

At the CloudBeat conference in Redwood City, California, Platform as a Service (Paas) vendors expressed their opinions about the growing number of large IT vendors — including Oracle, Dell and HP — that are moving into the PaaS market. “It doesn’t matter that there are so many [competitors]. The potential in the market is so huge. The real challenge is how to get the rest of the developers [not already using PaaS] to benefit from all the innovation going on,” said Solomon Hykes, CEO of dotCloud.

Isaac Roth, with Red Hat’s OpenShift, said that the smaller vendors will need to scale up in order to compete with the big companies. “This is a big company game,” said Roth. “I don’t think you can win as a little company.” He added, “Operating PaaS at scale and [at] the price points being set is incredibly difficult, and it takes an unbelievable amount of resources.”

Still, Engine Yard CEO John Dillon believes there is plenty of room for a lot of PaaS vendors. “It’s a really big market. Lots of people will survive,” he predicted.
