[okfn-discuss] Use Cloud tools to create Open Data apps?

Great thanks guys.
But what I mean is a specific focus on 'PaaS'. These guys like ep.io are
'IaaS', ie. hosting for Python apps, which is the kind of tool I would
imagine lots of Open Data developers are using, but my question is can you
use other Cloud tools, like Salesforce.com or Google Apps, to do the same
thing as Python?
Also is there any extra benefit in doing so? For example if you use
Force.com, could you get better CRM integration? etc.

For Python apps: http://www.ep.io/
ep.io just deploys WSGI applications, offering PostgreSQL and Redis - so
I think moving your app to another platform should be easy. Django and
are first-class citizens.
For Python, Ruby and others: http://www.heroku.com/
I have never used Heroku myself, but I think it's not very different
ep.io, it's probably for larger projects.
