Google App Engine lets users deploy Python, Java, and Go applications to resources Google owns and autoscales without requiring a system administrator. We looked at Google App Engine and loved the framework, but wanted to run it on our own clusters or in other clouds. This talk covers why we created AppScale, how we did it, and the hardware that it can run on. We also cover the open source technologies we use to automatically deploy App Engine apps on your own hardware (e.g., Cassandra, memcached, ejabberd).
