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

Heroku

Acquired by Salesforce in late 2010, Heroku supports Ruby, Node.js, Clojure, Java, Python, and Scala development. Heroku leverages "dynos" -- processes of any type running on the platform, such as Web or worker processes. Dynos are isolated in their own container for security and resource guarantees; they also feature elasticity, routing, and process management. Dyno distribution is done via a dyno manifold execution environment. Heroku Web scaling offers instant spin-up, infinite capacity, and scaling for each component of an app, according to Heroku documentation. Git is the primary means for deploying apps to Heroku, and apps can use relational database services, including Heroku's Postgres offering and MySQL from Amazon Web Services.

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.
