OPaaS? OPaaS is PaaS, but open. Think Force.com/Google App Engine/
Amazon EC2 - but open. Really open. Not fake open like so much other
BS services that try to lock you in. In a nutshell, ModBox is a Web-
based distributed development environment that is completely neutral
in every way. So, you can use any infrastructure you want, any
programming language, (e.g., Perl, Ruby on Rails, PHP, Java, etc.) any
server, any OS, any database, etc. to create/distribute applications.
Also, because ModBox works over standard HTTP, you can incorporate
existing applications or web services into the applications you
create. ModBox brings all the pieces together seemlessly for
programmers and users. I hope I have borrowed the best ideas from
IDE's, RAD, frameworks, Web services grid/cloud computing and Open
Source to make a logical ecosystem which puts a much needed front-end/
face on all of it. Being a programmer, I know getting programmers
interested in a new service is key, or as an old friend of mine used
to say, ignore the programmers and die! With that said, I welcome you
to Rock the Box and let me know if it makes as much sense to you as it
does to me. I
would, of course greatly appreciate any feedback as I am not so bold
to think I have cracked the code on the 1.0. The URL is below.
