In Pictures: 9 Cloud development platforms on the rise

These turnkey development services get your apps up and running quickly, saving you from infrastructure tedium

Google App Engine

Google App Engine enables developers to run Web apps on Google's infrastructure. It features dynamic Web serving; persistent storage with queries, sorting, and transactions; and automatic scaling and load-balancing. It includes support for Java and languages using a JVM-based interpreter or compiler, as well as Python and Google's Go. The dev environment enables developers to simulate App Engine on their local machines. Applications run in a secure sandbox with limited access to the underlying OS, and Web requests can be distributed across multiple servers. For storing data, App Engine Datastore offers a NoSQL schema-less object datastore, the Google Cloud SQL relational SQL database service, and Google Cloud Storage, for storing objects and files up to terabytes in size. App Engine features APIs for authenticating users.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
