DotCloud supports PHP, Ruby, Python, Perl, Java, Node.JS, MySQL, Redis, RabbitMQ, Solr, MongoDB and PostgreSQL. Like many other PaaSes, it runs on Amazon Web Services.
Last month DotCloud bought DuoStack, a similar multi-platform PaaS.
As part of the move to general availability, DotCloud also announced the following new features to improve resilience during AWS outages. According to it announcement:
- High Availability: Applications built on DotCloud can automatically span multiple availability zones and datacenters, seamlessly distributing traffic between locations and providing automatic failover.
- Dynamic scaling: As traffic to a stack or database increases, DotCloud makes it incredibly easy to allocate additional resources to ensure it can effectively handle the load.
DotCloud detailed its response to the AWS outage in a blog entry.
