IaaS, PaaS, SaaS...XaaS

I attended a wonderful DevOps meetup last week. And I liked it so much that I can't resist recording few of its ideas and details. It was delivered by Andy Croll who is the single developer (Ops/Web designer/BA/QA/DBA...) army behind the website at the link below. I wish I could rewind the time and video record the session.

The primary idea matches with the lean mean startup. The Platform as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service, Software as a Service and ... so many services available and huge number of people people involved in maintaining them, a smarter way is to to deliver is to utilize them and be more efficient and effective at the same time.

One liner details about tools stack:

        [open language cloud application platform]
        [an open-source JavaScript library that helps you build the next generation of HTML5 and CSS3-powered websites]
        [tool you need to pinpoint and solve performance issues in your Ruby, Java, .NET, PHP and Python apps.]
        [Hosted continuous integration and deployment -- sets up in minutes and runs your tests up to 10x faster, with Selenium support]
        [The Heroku Process Manager, Managing your processes to add scalability and save you money]
        [keeps you up to date on the ruby gems that matter to you]
        [customer relationship management and messaging tool for web app]
        [record Heatmaps for your website pages]
        [makes it easy to attract new subscribers, send them beautiful email newsletters and see stunning reports on the results]
        [SMTP relay services to deliver transactional emails triggered by web apps]
        [simple, effective, agile project management tool that allows your team to collaborate around a shared backlog of stories]
        [is the easiest way to enable true HTML5 Video on your site]

The above set is described more precisely at following link, in Andy's words:
