The RedHat OpenShift folks are making it super-simple to deploy a Lift app.
Basically, just write your Lift app with a Maven POM file, git-push the app to OpenShift and in a few minutes, the app is live.
How to do it
I built a simple Lift/Escalante app.
OpenShift and Escalante just work with Lift. Thanks for Galder for creating Escalante and lowering to barriers to entry for Lift.
