Overall Satisfaction with AppFog

I used AppFog for my masters' projects implementing AppFog cloud service with Java and Mongo. We created multiple instances of the projects and it was being used by more than 50 students at once. Our system was designed for a customer to select a particular model of car for purchase within five different varieties of car sellers with various models.
  • Appfog is one of the best PAAS service providers. It has many technologies to choose from with variety of platform and databases.
  • It has good performance and capacity to withstand multiple instances for multiple users. It is highly scalable.
  • Though it is good and easy for developers, it lacks operational activities and monitoring tools.
  • It is easy to deploy WAR on AppFog with its console but sometimes it can lack on the performance and feasibility.
  • Our project was deployed with good efficiency and easily accessible.
  • The platform was much recommeded across the groups and peers.
Appfog was one of the requirements of our project since it was the fastest growing PAAS provider. Also it was easy to deploy an application with multiple options to choose for the development environment for our application. It was "ALL in ONE."
It was very good to use in small scale projects. Considering the high end projects with many instances and multi-platform architectures, it is better to test before the application is deployed. I think few of the questions can be general - who are the system users and what size is the application focussing on? How much resources are required? Will the application require any additional services?
