Future-proofing Your Apps: Cloud Foundry and Node.js

by June 27, 2012

Most real-world applications we ship to consumers or enterprises are multi-year projects. In the cloud era, newer technologies (programming languages, runtimes, frameworks) are created faster than ever. While most of them fail to get any traction, once in a while a technology becomes popular because it solves a problem or set of problems extremely well.
Now in such an era, if you make a large investment for a multi-year project on a PaaS that only supports one technology and some other technology comes along that happens to solve your problem better, then you are stuck. You have unintentionally become a victim of vendor lock-in. The heart of your problem is that your PaaS, and hence your app, was not future-proofed to begin with.
