PaaSport Marketplace – Final Release


The research result PaaSport Marketplace – Final release of the FP7 project PaasPort is a platform that resolves the data and application portability issues that exist in the Cloud PaaS market through a flexible and efficient deployment and migration approach.

PaaSport suggests an approach that allows developers to be independent from a single vendor and be able to switch between different platforms that they can discover through a single marketplace. This single, interoperable marketplace removes the semantic interoperability barriers and enables the unified access to different PaaS offerings, facilitates cross-platform deployment and allows European Cloud PaaS vendors (in particular SMEs)to promote their products.
