15.6. Cloud Platform as Service Provider

If you do not have a web server available on the internet or want to deploy to a PaaS (Platform as a Service) system right from the start, you should have a look at what the various providers have to offer. The two US market leaders are currently Heroku (http://www.heroku.com/) and Engine Yard (http://www.engineyard.com/).
PaaS as platform usually offers less options than your own server. But you have 7x24 support for this platform if anything does not work properly.
