Listing the Java PaaS Public and Private Clouds

· Cloud Zone

The Cloud Zone is brought to you in partnership with Mendix. Better understand the aPaaS landscape and how the right platform can accelerate your software delivery cadence and capacity with the Gartner 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Platform as a Service.

[UPDATE): I added Jelastic and created another category I'm calling Private Java PaaS in which I put GigaSpaces Cloudify, Cumulogic and ActiveState Stackato.]

A little while ago at OracleWorld/JavaOne, Oracle announced its public cloud offering, including its Oracle Java Cloud Service -- the latest entrant into the increasingly crowded Java Platform-as-a-Service space. Despite being the most popular programming language, PaaS offerings for Java were not adopted as quickly as those for Ruby, Python and PHP.

Not surprisingly, however, once Java PaaS arrived at the scene, many of the big players now have PaaS offerings -- given Java's popularity in the enterprise. 

Here's the list I compiled (in alphabetical order). If I have overlooked anything, please let me know in the comments:

Public Java PaaS

Private Java PaaS

It should be noted that HP has a also made some noise about a Java PaaS but it hasn't launched yet.
